If you’re a fan of John Robshaw and his sumptuous array of exotic prints and patterns, you’ll want to shop his brand new e-commerce website. I was thrilled when I heard about this from Allyson who works for John down in New York (thanks Allyson!).
I introduced you to the ethnic prints and patterns of Akasha recently, their collection of bedding and pillows each handmade in India and are really luxurious, each with intricate details and lovely colors. This collection is perfect for those of you looking to bring ethnic prints into the home in a more subtle fashion, they blend so well with the modern home.
Thank you so much Akasha for this very generous offer!

Affordable and stylish? Can this be real? I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about EQ3 sooner. I first found out about them 6 months ago while at Jordan’s in Reading, MA. They have an entire section devoted to EQ3 and I was blown away by the styles and prices of this very posh looking collection of furniture. All the sofas are priced around $800 and some of their coffee tables are under $150. Beds with headboards only $350. They also carry bedding, accessories, and lighting.
And the best part, none of it looked cheap or throw away. The sofas were comfy and I like all the color choices and clean European lines with lots of lacquered pieces and chrome. I walked away from EQ3 thinking that the line was exclusive to Jordan’s furniture, but a reader recently told me that they have a website, and it was there that I noticed they have stores popping up all over America, in fact they’ve just opened two in Phoenix, AZ and Norfolk, VA. Other locations can be found in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Grand Rapids, Richmond, Charlotte and are also available in over 300 in-store galleries across North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
Very Anglepoise on a budget.
In the MA/NH area, you can find them at Jordan’s Furniture. Anyone have experience with EQ3? I’d love to hear from you! Please comment below.

I absolutely love shopping at Pillows and Throws and think it’s one of the best online sources for bedding and pillows.
Owner Pam wrote to me a few minutes ago about their brand new collection of Thomaspaul Pillows (she knows I’m a fan of his work), and I really like some of his new designs. He has a more affordable line of cotton pillows out, I think my favorite is the white Matryoska pillow, it’s the best. No clue where I’d put it, but I’m thinking on a small white bench I have beneath my bedroom window. It’s just so cute.
Pillows and Throws also carry tons of quilts from quilt guru Denyse Schmidt, the Single Girl quilt is one of my favorites. I dream of owning a quilt by this lady – someday!
Pam also mentioned a new contemporary bedding collection that she loves from BlissLiving. Very nice, thanks for the tips Pam!
