We introduced organic shapes into our mosaic, inspired by a lazy vacation day on Sullivan's Island, SC, spent watching patterns form in the sand from lapping waves.
Stay tuned for images of our final mosaic design!

We are thrilled to announce that we've been selected as one of the ten NEW TRAD designers for 2016! Incredibly honored and grateful to be recognized, we would like to thank everyone who voted and showed support. Most importantly, we want to express gratitude and share our excitement with each of our clients who have collaborated with us and allowed us to creatively tell each story through layers of architectural history, textures and art. We would also like to thank the Editors and Judges involved in the selection process; we are blown away by the talent of this year's designers, and so fortunate to be among such great company!
Showcasing our client's Georgia farmhouse, our feature in Trad Home named Layers of Character highlights our collaboration as a team, our love for local artisans, and our signature juxtaposition of organic and elegant elements.
The inaugural Southern Style Now festival took place May 18-22, 2016 in New Orleans. It was a remarkable celebration of design, marked by keynotes from industry icons like Bunny Williams, India Hicks, Julia Reed, Lisa Fine and Suzanne Rheinstein, panel discussions, cocktail and dinner parties, exhibitions, a spectacular Traditional Home showhouse and a series of windows on Magazine Street imagined by hand-selected designers, each based on one of the seven deadly sins.
CLOTH & KIND was invited by Southern Style Now founder and creator, Robert Leleux - former editor of Domino magazine and former managing editor of Lonny, to design a window at the Kevin Gillentine Gallery and also to speak on a panel about textiles with our esteemed peers Peter Fasano, Elizabeth Hamilton, Stacy Waggoner and Kate Reynolds. Take a peek at our window installation below...
Special thanks to our partners in making the window possible, including Clay McLaurin for the use of two of his new Spring '16 textiles - Reeds & Vine, The World Art Group and artist Ethan Harper for working with us to create the crazy custom artwork we dreamed up, local drapery & soft goods workroom Brandon Wilkins for the impeccable custom fabric covered shadow boxes, Pierre-Paul for mounting the artwork in such a way that allowed for them to float effortlessly within the shadow boxes and last but not least, to Kevin & Vincent at the Kevin Gillentine Gallery for being such gracious hosts.
