Seema Krish: Indian Textiles

I recently heard from a talented textile designer in Boston, Seema Krish, and had a first look at her newly launched website and felt excited to share her work here today. Seema translates traditional Indian techniques of applique, hand block printing and embroidery along with memories of her childhood into fabrics that are modern and lively — of course words cannot fully describe this sort of thing, one needs to see for themselves… So here, have a look… :)

I want these pillows above for my bedroom! So badly! If you’re familiar with Calvin Klein Home, Jack Lenor Larsen, Robert Allen and Donghia fabrics (RA and Donghia being two of my personal favorites of to-the-trade fabrics) you will be impressed to know that Seema has had her hand in designing for them in addition to her new line of textiles that I’m sure will be a hit. I personally love her pillow collection, especially in her anjeeri, sona, rani pink and peacock blues colors. Gorgeous, and of course I find that she’s used Hindi words to name the colors in her collection most fascinating… especially to learn what each of them means (learn here).

Psst: Have a glance at her blog, Textile Swatches, or perhaps spend an hour there (like I just did!). What an informative blog!

Cut & Paste {Stockholm}

I was just invited to attend Cut & Paste in Sweden, an international exhibition of contemporary collage and assemblage, taking place now through October 10, 2009. I wish I had known sooner because I would have loved to see this! If anyone reading attends and gets some great photographs from the exhibit and would like to share them here on decor8, please let me know. I’ve been a huge fan of collage since 6th grade, so an exhibition like this would be right up my alley. I hope to attend lots of art shows next year as I start to feel my way around, I still feel like I’m walking around with my head in a cloud and my brain keeps telling me that I’m flying home in a month or so, since I’m only used to staying here a few months each year. Now that I’m sticking around for awhile, I’m hoping to make some fun travel plans for 2010 that will include some really great shows that I can share here. :)
