Designer Collaboration: Suzanne Sharp + The Rug Company

We blogged before about our insane love for the Vivienne Westwood Squiggle rug for The Rug Company.  While out and about in Soho yesterday, we popped into their showroom to take a peak at our love, Squiggle and some others. Below, some of our new fav designs from Suzanne Sharp for The Rug Company.

"Key Turquoise"

"Greek Key" (in it's beyond oversized scale, we love it!)

MatchbookMag + Hugo Guinness

Matchbook Magazine, April 2011

The eclectic home of Linda Rodin in this month’s MatchbookMag reminded us of our love for Hugo Guinness artwork.  These black and white prints (three seen in vintage frames above Rodin’s sofa) are just classic!  Find them at John Derian Co. in New York.

Hugo Guinness - truly classic!

Perfect little print for the ladies at MatchbookMag!
