Who is Nick Chacona?

Saturday, 29 January, 2011

A lot of you have received Eskayel related emails from Nick, and you always hear me mentioning we and us. I thought it would be nice to introduce those of us here on a daily basis at the Eskayel design studio in case you were wondering who we are.

Nick Chacona is my partner in Eskayel, he handles sales, book keeping and a multitude of general studio tasks, leaving the creative work up to me. He is my boyfriend, the cute bald headed guy manning the Eskayel booth at trade shows. Nick is also an amazing music producer and dj and has a music studio right next door to our studio. His first full length solo album came out earlier this year and while designing the cover art I was inspired to make our Love in the Middle wallpaper. His album is available on I-tunes or you can purchase the actual cd here.

Kaya is our pit bull. She likes to hang out either under the table with all the cords and speakers in the music studio, or on top of my desk with her face on my wacom tablet!

This is my favorite picture of me an nick outside our studio on Brodaway.

The Flower Sofa

Saturday, 29 January, 2011

I have been noticing all these cute little flowered couches lately and it makes me think that a sofa upholstered with
Eskayel fabrics would be so beautiful. I might try to organize this for our ICFF booth.

These are from Pinch, Anthropologie, and even West Elm.

Eskayel in the blogosphere

Wednesday, 19 January, 2011

Recently our wallpaper and fabrics have been getting a lot of attention in the land of blogs and we are truly grateful! Maybe it is because I have been putting so much effort into our blog, which I hope is as wonderful as these some day!

Above is a dreamy combination put together by one of our clients, Jami Suspic, using one of our new Era Collection wallpaper patterns on her blog Affordable Decor. Another client, Jacinda Barrett, featured us on her BEAUTIFUL blog which features design, travel and fashion. We sold one of our new wall hangings to Chassity Evans of Look, Linger, Love and she was kind enough to blog about it and today we saw a post about Brooklyn designers on Andrea Sosa Fontaine’s blog which featured us along with some gorgeous designs by Andre Joyau, pictured below.

Katrina Vonnegut Furniture

Tuesday, 11 January, 2011

I have been working on organizing the photo shoot for the upcoming Era collection (2/01/2011) and am so excited to be shooting at RH Gallery and using some of the outstanding furniture from the designers they represent.
Katrina Vonnegut is a RISDI graduate and has been using dyes on wood and rope that compliment the way I use ink in my paintings, wallpaper and fabric, especially in the new collection. We will be photographing the new wallpaper patterns with her furniture as well as with some items from Fredrik Farg and Young Sook Park, also represented by RH Gallery. Katrina and I are also thinking about how we can collaborate using my fabrics as upholstery on a piece for Eskayel’s ICFF booth.
You can view Katrina’s new work January 18th at RH Gallery. Details are at the bottom of this post.
