Still Loving Suzanis…
After getting the Domino news this month I was sure glad that Elle Decor served up a kick ass issue in which I may have folded down every other page. My favorite image has to be the cover though, which is the entryway of artist Anne Becker’s NYC apartment. I really loved this space- it’s far more streamlined and simple that I tend to veer, but something about it’s clean lines mixed with piles of suzanis and antique/ethnic pieces really appealed to the yogini in me (p.s. I managed to finally master the headstand this week with the help of my incredible teacher/guru David!) Anyways, suzanis have become kind of overdone these days in interiors, but I still love them and want one of my very own ASAP.
To create a piece like in Anne’s entryway you could do one of two things- frame a whole suzani or but inexpensive ikat fabric and wrap it around an extra large blank artist canvas and use a staple gun to attach it to the back of the stretcher bars. Antiquarian Textiles on eBay has great options for both.
I am loving the embroidered/beaded ottoman shown in Anne’s living room, it reminds me a smidge of the ottomans from Karma Living I posted a while back.
Pick up some suzani boxed candles from designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who certainly has a serious love affair with suzanis- just check his portfolio and product lines!
