Designing a Cushion for The Pink Wishbone Project to Benefit Breast Cancer

I couldn't have been more pleased when SUITE New York asked me to design a seat cushion for an event they are doing to benefit Breast Cancer Research. As many of you know, my mother passed away from breast cancer almost a year ago Christmas Eve...So the project was personal. Suite New York Furniture has created a pink Wishbone chair for the first time ever and requested to have 20 designers create cushion covers. A hundred percent of the proceeds will go to benefit Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Kelly Behun, Sheila Bridges, Alexandra Champalimaud, Neisha Crosland, Tori Golub, Alexa Hampton, Allegra Hicks, Julie Hillman, Annie Kelly, Celerie Kemble, Kit Kemp, Laura Kirar, Amy Lau, Katie Lydon, Emma Jane Pilkington, Sara Rotman, Ruthie Sommers, Kelly Wearstler, Bunny Williams, and me. The auction begins at the event on October 7th but will continue through October 28th taking place at Barneys Chelsea Passage in New York City. For more info about the auction, go here. The above images are of my cushion, the 2 below are some samples of a few others cushions I love.

Voila! My new print "Colors" has arrived.

Personally I love them...Very pleased with how they turned. This new print is called "Colors" appropriately so and they mimic the torn colored pieces collages that I have been working on for the last 2 years...You can see samples in earlier postings. I have about 7 colorways picked out from this collection, which is about 2 to 3 too many...So as soon as I pick my ultimate favorites they will be off to the printers and ready to have in your home within 3 weeks ;-) Call 212-223-4234 for more information.

A New LULU DK Fabric in The Works

A new LULU DK fabric in the works. The front image is the original artwork and the back image is the CAD that the printer sends for approval. I have already sent in all my different colorways to the printers, so I am just waiting for all the samples to arrive....Very exciting, with that said, summer is the worst time to try and get these things done, as all the mills take long European vacations....Which unfortunately forces me to get very impatient.... This is to come, along with a very large shell, shapes and plant design I just approved along with the Batik little shells I posted a few months ago. The color strike offs of these just arrived in a huge box, so once I pick the colorways I like, I will post them.....and then they will go to print!

A Touch of House Envy

I am always ripping and tearing inspirational moments out of magazines; a color here, a pattern there, a beautiful terrace or enticing living room...They all find there way into a drawer beneath my desk that subliminally says "hope to see you soon". But when I came upon this fabulous London home belonging to Christine D'Ornano I thought, as my 2 year old twins say...."Wooow, I love you"....And, that is kind of how I feel about these rooms, so I couldn't resist sharing.
