Rebecca Atwood: Howland

when my eyes fell on Howland, the latest collection from textile designer Rebecca Atwood, first thing that came to mind was: hell yes, i DO want gold zippers on my pillows. it’s simple touches like that that usually seal the deal when i’m contemplating a new purchase.

The new fall collection begins on a crisp autumn morning. As morning gives way to afternoon, smoky grey shadows cast long grids along the sidewalk, and weathered steel reflects the soft luster of the late-morning sun. A day in the studio is spent creating potato prints, marbling paper and working through ideas in a sketchbook. By the end of the day the light has shifted, casting everything in deep blue-green hues.

all available at their online shop. i’m really into that marble pillow.
