Role Models: Chloé + Place

Role Models: Chloé + Place | CLOTH & KIND

FASHION | Chloé  + FABRIC | Place Textiles

Place Textiles’ Mt. Stuart fabric, which only comes in this pure natural white, has long been one of our favorite textiles. Its nubby, soft texture is an experience in and of itself and just like this Chloé piece from their Fall-Winter 2014 runway, it stands alone in its stunning simplicity.

Couldn’t resist adding the Waterlogue version too… just because it’s so darn pretty.

Happy weekend, guys!

Inspired: Michele Varian Pillows

Wonderfully talented Michele Varian is debuting several new items at The Architectural Digest Home Show in NY this week (March 20-23, 2014) and we both went mad for her linen cushions. They’ve all been designed by Michele herself and are made right in New York City. Cool, huh?

ABOUT PROUST ON DESIGN | Answered by our design icons, these must-ask questions come from a 19th century parlor game made popular by Marcel Proust, the French novelist, essayist & critic. Proust believed the direct questions and honest responses that they elicited revealed the true nature of the individual. For this column, we have put a design related spin on the traditional questions. While this method has been used by many journalists throughout the years, we were primarily inspired by The Proust Questionnaire, which appears monthly on the back page of one of our all time favorite magazines, Vanity Fair (also Krista’s alma mater). Read all of the previous Proust on Design questionnaires here.
