Jonathan Adler for Kravet

  We have a Jonathan Adler store in Austin and it’s got to be one of the happiest places on earth. Except for sad old me bringing things down because I can’t afford anything. I drive past the window every morning and the “Your 24-Hour Pot Dealer” slogan under the URL always makes the subconscious [...]

I’m deducing that she was at least partially responsible for the quilt revival of the 70s. Today, her granddaughter Susan Bartlett Crater, and Parish’s onetime apprentice Libby Cameron, [...]

Utopia Goods

  In the recent post on Banksia Bloom by Saffron Craig, Rebecca mentioned Utopia Goods as another textile producer featuring Australian flora and fauna in their designs. Flowering Gum, above, “features Bruce [Slorach]’s illustrated honeyeater birds feasting on the nectar of a feathered flowering gum nut. If you look closely, there are different varieties of honeyeaters on the backdrop of a subtle organic polka [...]

Marimekko Check-O

{ Sonja by Aino-Maija Metsola }   Because we need a Marimekko fix once in a while. The newest prints had emerald before emerald was cool! And triangles after they’re cool. Oh, just kidding. We still love you, triangles, never change! These images are from Design Scandinave in France — these fabrics are also available [...]
