INSPIRATI O N The Global Collection was inspired by a recent trip to Europe. Having always been fascinated by geometry, art, and architecture, it is incredible to walk the ancient city streets observing the incredible motifs that have been seen for centuries by millions of people - from everyday pedestrians to monarchs - and translate them into modern designs. Geometry - and perhaps ornamentation - can be experienced high and low; while walking over a geometric manhole cover in Rome, pushing open an iron door when exiting the NY subway, looking through a closed ship window in Paris, looking up at the ceiling of the Pantheon or up through the pyramid at the Louvre. The Fall/Winter prints play on the relationship between positive and negative space created by geometric motifs. The patterns develop a way of looking and seeing - and can appear differently depending upon the environment they are in. Our Watercolor application softens the sharp, rigid lines of angular shapes creating modern, painterly linens. The symbolism of motifs in relation to various cultures is extraordinary; one icon can represent astrological meanings to some all the while carrying religious or creation story significance to others. The Giza Stool - the first piece in our new Furnishings Collection - translates geometric motifs into 3D space. Available in polished nickle or brass, this stool is chic in our linen or Customer’s Own. Our best-selling Neon Pipers are back in more colors than ever (loving the Electric Blue)! Paired with a natural, slubbed linen, this seasons neons feel brighter and more playful than ever! We have introduced Velvet Pipers to pair with our Watercolor Linens. The warmth of the tailored velvet texture juxtaposed with the casualness and simplicity of our Crema linen makes for the perfect Fall/Winter pillow. We also added several new metallics to our collection this season. This subtle shimmer of everyday glamour is a great neutral texture to pair in both rustic and tailored spaces. Our collection of Personal Accessories has tripled! We have Neon Jelly Zippys for your inner fashionista, XL Zippys that fit everything but the kitchen sink, new Passport Pockets for jetsetters - and more! Enjoy!

PRINTS INSPIRED BY ARCHITECTURE IN PARIS, ROMA & NEW YORKPAIRED WITH THE TRADITIONAL CRAFT OF CHAIN STITCH EMBROIDERY

roma I / shale

roma II / shale

Our new Chain Stitch Collection features modern motifs inspired by ironwork in Paris, Rome and New York. Handmade in a small farming community in Kashmir, India, in between harvest time as a means of supplemental income. The craft of chain-stitching is passed from generation-togeneration; children learn from their parents at a young age. One square foot of embroidery takes an entire day to complete - meaning our 20” pillows take nearly three days to finish! Each piece is one-of-a-kind, and truly a work of art.

Our Watercolor Linen blends hand-painted sketches with stateof-the-art digital fabric printing to achieve a one-of-a-kind watercolored fabric.

ABOUT THE PRINTS Showing its painterly process, Ziggy is a print featuring vertical watercolor brush strokes making up a classic chevron print. Resembling the variegated textures of buildings in Rome, Corso is a print blending patina with geometric architectural highlights of The Eternal City. A play on positive and negative space, Étoile derives from the symbolic eight-pointed star, whose origins reflect balance, harmony, and cosmic order.
