House & Garden Cushion Celebrates the London Design Festival

To mark this year’s London Design Festival, we have collaborated with House & Garden to create a one-of-a-kind cushion. Gabby Deeming, House & Garden’s decorating editor, created a bespoke design featuring playful pops of color. Gabby selected the Printemps Chevron Border in Mandarin, Citrus, Midnight and Fuchsia, and to complete the bold look, edged the cushion in the Printemps Brush Fringe in Mandarin.

Spring Happenings

With the arrival of spring we’ve not only enjoyed a wonderful response to our new collections, we’ve enjoyed ourselves at a handful of industry events and celebrations. Most recently, at last evening’s Design on a Dime 2014 Opening Night Reception. Crowds gathered to see the work of leading interior designers who have created spectacular vignettes that will be offered for sale to the public.

 

Proceeds from the event will benefit Housing Works, an organization serving low-income New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Since 2005, Design on a Dime has raised more than $7 million in support of Housing Works.
