Install shots

Friday, 19 December, 2014

We love it when our clients send us photos of their spaces and how they’ve used our product, or their design process of picking palettes or how they style their shops with our pillows! We’ve put together a round up of some shots we like.


Cactus Inspiration

Friday, 19 December, 2014

We’ve come across some cool cactus design lately and wanted to share it. These beautiful plates by Eric Roinestad are so cool. The spikes are actually really sharp and the plate has a really nice weight to it. It would make a perfect holiday gift…


The images below totally shocked us because they look like super high resolution photographs….but in fact they’re oil painting by artist Lee Kwang-Ho. They’re really large format which make them even more impressive and stunning.


This spa interior below uses real cactus pads as wall decor. It’s such a beautiful way to bring color into this all white space and of course we always love having a connection to the natural world.

We’re thinking about wicker chairs around here today. Below is a selection of a few favorites. Wicker can add great texture and pattern to a space and it pairs so well with textiles and opposing materials – such as copper, as seen below. It’s been documented as far back as ancient Egyptian times! So it can also provide an interesting reference to other cultures and indigenous craft. There are so many beautiful wicker ideas out there – we’ll have to dedicate a future post to baskets and lighting and…and…and…!

Tie-Dyeing with Shabd

Tuesday, 11 November, 2014

My good friend Michelle of Studio Spaced Out organized this awesome tie dye workshop with Shabd Simon-Alexander for her wedding shower last week. Shabd’s first job in NYC was with Michelle for one of her clothing lines, long before Michelle transitioned from fashion to interiors, so she has come full circle!

This is actually the first time I’ve done real shibori and it was so much fun. Check out the pillow case I made which will be turned into an Eskayel wallpaper, fabric and rug, in our upcoming Tropic collection available next Spring.

Shabd does workshops, is a professor at Pratt and has written a book called Tie Dye, which offers step by step instructions for several different dyeing techniques. Fun fact – she was the first person to teach Martha Stewart how to tie dye! blogresize_wood blogresize_suppliesblogresize_shanan_pillow_case

Laura Plageman

Tuesday, 28 October, 2014

California-based artist, Laura Plageman, has a really cool solo show on at the moment at De Soto Gallery in Venice, CA. Here’s an excerpt describing her work:

In the second installment of her Response series, Laura Plageman shifts her gaze from land to sea. With continued focus on the materiality of the photographic print, her new works oscillate between image and object, photography and sculpture, landscape and still life. Each piece is a “response” to an original image that is sculpted and collaged into a tabletop assemblage and then re-photographed. The final prints hover between being illusory and tangible, seemingly impossible but showing evidence of their actual construction.

A simple idea can have so much potential when executed properly. Makes us long for summer and the California coast. We’ve selected a few favorite pieces below but definitely check out her other work – she has a similar series that uses imagery of the land that is equally as enticing.
