Oscar’s ikat, now mine.
While looking through my extensive collection of magazine clippings the other night, I came across an Ikat article I ripped from a 2008 issue of Elle Decor. I was clearly excited about the fabric featured in Oscar de la Renta’s spring 2008 collection, as apparent by the rabid circles I drew around the runway model. I also think the schoolgirl hearts really drive the point home that, I really really really really love this.
Fast forward 4 years… and luck has rained down on me from the proverbial design Gods, yaaaaay! While on a shopping mission for Stitch a few months ago, I was looking through a mountain of pillows covers when I come across this gem at the bottom of the pile. The colors were so rich and in such an unusual combination, even though I didn’t remember my run in with this fabric before, obsession set in real quick and I loved everything about it right away. The vendor told me a cool story about the fabric coming from the same mill in Uzbekistan which had produced the pattern for Oscar de la Renta… I promptly purchased a pair of my new favorite pillows ever (among others) and drove back to Cambridge. Not surprisingly, Oscar’s pillow didn’t sit at Stitch for too long before I snatched it up in an effort to beautify my living room. I guess the lesson here is that I am consistently obsessed with certain things, even if I don’t remember that I was already obsessed with that same thing a while ago, or whatever.
If you are jealous of my pillow, don’t fret, contact Stitch to get your own.
