To say a room is "So-o-o-o California" is to have an eye on the sum of the parts, because there are no required elements. "The origins of the California look go back at least 40 years," says Paige Rense, editor of Architectural Digest. It usually refers to big and casual: a huge sofa with loose pillows and textured natural color fabric; a tree in a large pot; expanses of bare windows; and a sisal rug.

In a way, Sally Sirkin Lewis can attribute her new collection, with its bold geometric designs, to environmental consciousness. Not hers, other people's. Since the 1960s when she started designing textiles and furniture, Lewis has established an international reputation for her signature look--airy "California" rooms in whites, beiges and neutral tones with sharp touches of color--something that "jumps out and makes a statement."
