East Meets West Via Paul Andrew

British shoe designer Paul Andrew debuted his Spring 2016 collection in New York City last September during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week against an effusive backdrop of Sanderson/Zoffany and Griffin & Wong fabric and wallpaper. It was a case of east meets west in the most fashionable sense of the phrase. Paul Andrew East to West […]

Design Is In Fashion with Cynthia Rowley

The Cynthia Rowley for Hooker Collection, launched by Hooker Furniture during High Point Market last October.

Material Girls

When an interior designer extraordinaire and an artistically minded fashion designer team up to produce a line of textiles, step back aesthetes: this is going to be a fine thing to watch! This just happens to be the Productrazzi caveat for the founders of Root Cellar Designs, material girls Tamara Matthews-Stephenson and Susan Young. Root Cellar […]

Gift Books for Design Devotees

Books as design products reflect the very soul of a space, the subject matter and the appearance of the bindings representative of the taste of the people living within each room. Even a design-oriented retail space takes on a warmer feel when books are in the mix, my point proven by the two photos (above […]

The Playful Search for Beauty

Have you noticed there continues to be a fixation on nostalgia? Should we continue to blame it on Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner or is this merely a cyclical flow resulting from our humanly drive for something new to think about? I suppose it doesn’t matter what’s causing the backward glace in design that makes […]

The Orient Expressed

I’ve been watching Asian-inspired design take an uptick in popularity during the past several months, and not just in the US.

Metallic Marvels by York

Seeing the metallic fabrics proliferate on the runways during the Spring/Summer 2013 couture fashion releases, I knew it would only be a matter of time before the distinctive sheen they exude made its way into interiors. Given the metallic products I’ve been seeing come through my inbox lately, that time has come. Case in point is a […]

Illusions by Marcel Wanders

Floating feathers, flecked flour, swirling smoke and leaping liquids are slights of hand Marcel Wanders is known to use in creating greater interest when photographing his products. You can see examples of this on his page of wallpaper designs for the UK-based manufacturer Graham & Brown, the newest collection, fittingly called Illusions, the second collaboration […]

Jason Wu Designs for Brizo

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicks off today, and there are a handful of fashion designers Productrazzi will be watching as they debut #FW15 collections; one in particular being Jason Wu, as I’ve been a fan of his since I accompanied eighteen other social media early adopters—as one of the original Blogger19—to experience the fashion designer’s […]

Painting Outside the Lines for #FW15

A love of haute couture is in the air given that Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, which kicks off in New York City on Thursday, takes to the runways over Valentine’s weekend. I’m seeing the theme emerge in the invitations to the shows peppering in. A sizable mailer from Moncler held a white Tyvek garment resembling […]
