Sep 27, 2011 | Leave a Comment

Clarence House is unique for mixing its old world / old school stature with a persistent infusion of off beat, and sometimes off-the-wall designs. Kazumi Yoshida, the company’s intrepid design director, is often responsible for their quirkiest patterns and it’s his unique take on color, fabric and design that’s sure to make this new book (with a release date of 10/11) especially interesting.

Inspired by images from the Hubble Space Telescope, the Cosmo Collection created for Eastern Knots brings a jolt of bold graphic energy to the more restrained tradition of Tibetan carpet design.

Kerry Croghan’s website is under construction so for the moment this peek at her textile work (via MoCo Loco and Gladstone Hotel) will have to function as a tantalizing preview of more to come. (That is unless you live in Toronto!)

Here’s a fun website. I especially like all the water color toile (as they call it). Above, one of two designs for their Brooklyn Life shower curtains, pillows and table runners.
