We can’t wait to see what Tobi Fairley, Gideon Mendelson, Philip Gorrivan and Patrik Lonn have up their sleeves.

Henredon is introducing loads of new ottomans this season – which can all be customized and many include an option for lift-top storage. We love this in NYC!

Vermicular! Worms!! A little history…the Ancient Roman term “vermiculatus” described a pattern “inlaid as if in the tracks of worms,” which has been used in architecture and design for centuries.  Originally carved into stone as surface ornament, the pattern was adopted into global textile design, seen in both Western patterns as well as most notably in the background of Indian palampores. Centuries later, we’re still fans of this decorative motif!

Did you guess?

The fun announcement is that I (Anne) will be traveling to Scotland for a week thanks to our amazing friends at Traditional Home and Scottish Development International! In the same excited breath, I am very sad to share that Suysel will not be able to join, as she slowly recovers from a battle with a nasty nasty virus over the past two weeks (please send positive thoughts her way).  Battling the extreme separation anxiety over the next week, I will be taking notes, lots of photos and probably returning home with a Scottish tartan throw or the like for my dear dear partner in crime – who will be missed tremendously.

I’ll be arriving in Glasgow on Monday morning and visiting the following cities, all over four days: Newmilns, Ayr, Loch Lomond, Perth, Forres, Elgin, Nairn, Edinburgh, and Peebles. The trip will be a comprehensive tour of Scottish textile mills and studios, visiting such names as Holland & Sherry and Timorous Beasties among many many others that I’ll be reporting back on next week!

Some other exciting tidbits….a quick photo montage of the the hotels we’ll be staying. No words required.
