Atelier Février Rugs

atelier-fevrier-rugs-5-design-crush

 

These beautiful floor rugs by Atelier Février cost more than my first car (a 1987 VW Cabriolet convertible for those of you wondering), but goodness they’re a treat for the eyes. This is the kind of rug that people hang on the wall rather than lay underfoot. Each design features a modern look that’s been created with traditional craftsmanship.

Neon Zinn, AKA creator Seth Damm, is a collection of jewelry made from hand-dyed 100% cotton rope. Equally at home hanging on you wall as around your neck, Damm’s creations are expressive and experimental creations that can best be described as sculptural wearables.

Anna Buckner

Anna Buckner-1-Design Crush

 

North Carolina-based Anna Buckner‘s quilt paintings are completely captivating. She begins by piecing scraps of fabric together to form the top half of a quilt that’s then stretched on a support. The action causes the material to warp and a beautiful transformation takes place.
