design anthology magazine

this long holiday weekend is finally giving me the chance to really dive into my long time internet friend, suzy annetta's new design anthology magazine. 
more like a book than a magazine, this new shelter title highlights the growing asian market, and is a refreshing addition to the shelter magazine section of your local bookseller. plus, i've always LOVED suzy's fantastic minimal/luxe design point of view, so there is that too.

congrats suzy & co.,  design anthology is awesome- i LOVES it!

maison21 at #ICFF (dreams do come true)

a little late since #ICFF is over halfway through at this point, but my fields rug for 27ground is on exhibit though 5/20 at the woven accents booth, #2166.

i also want to acknowledge that sometimes dreams do come true: when i was in design school in the way back when, i vowed that one day a product i designed would be shown at ICFF; today, cross one off the bucket list!  next step is a my own booth at ICFF just for my licenses: wallpaper, rugs, fabrics, lighting, casegoods, upholstery, accessories and tabletop!  and this time it's not going to take 20 years either!  ;-)

thanks to erik perez of HLgroup for the instaphoto!

introducing "shapes" a new collection of pieced cowhide rugs by maison21

i've been talking about it for long enough, so now i'd like to officially introduce you to my "shapes" collection of pieced cowhide rugs, designed by maison21 for 27ground, available exclusively through woven accents. while the line is a collaboration between the three names i just mentioned, it is also a collaboration between me and you, as each of the four patterns is infinitely customizable for the needs of every project- any size, any shape, any color. need "pennants" as 9' x 12' rug, not a 12 foot runner as shown? not a problem.  need "hexes" in orange, red and yellow? not a problem. whatever you need, not a problem!

the shapes collection is so new, it's not even on the woven accents website yet, but you can view it in person at their showroom right across from the main entrance of the PDC at 8674 melrose avenue, west hollywood, 90069- it's in the window thru june. you can also check out the "fields" rug at ICFF in NYC, may 17-20th, booth number 2166.

i'm terribly proud of the line, and will be talking more about it soon, but first, i wanted to get the pictures out so you can start sharing and specifying!

thanks for viewing.
