Rustic Modern Knits

Rustic Modern Knits

$24.99
More Info
Rustic, organic, urban, naturalâ a collection of unique knitted accessories.

Enjoy a clean, sophisticated take on knitting with Rustic Modern Knits. Yumiko Alexander's collection of 23 knitted accessories takes its inspiration from the natural world. Her knitted headbands, shawls, wraps, mitts, hats, and more all reflect her interest in nature's beautyâ verdant leaves, flowers, shells, waves, and colors inspired by sunsets and stone. Versatile knitting designs allow a shawl to become a scarf or a cape by making just a few slight adjustments. Stitch patterns and easy techniques have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the knitted fabric.

Yumiko's knitting designs are fashion-forward but never trendy--they exist in a sphere all their own. Despite or perhaps because of their organic and rustic feel, they are very much at home in a cosmopolitan setting, and should appeal to knitters looking for beautiful and unique knitting projects to wear.

    Sean Scherer's Kabinett & Kammer: Creating Authentic Interiors

    $35.00
    More Info

    Interior designer, artist, and collector Sean Scherer shares his secrets about applying the principles of two-dimensional art to home design

    Sean Scherer's Kabinett & Kammeris equally a celebration and a guide to both collecting and showing how lively design can integrate disparate objects into beautifully layered ensembles. Scherer's interiors feature vintage display cabinets housing discarded collections of whittled songbirds, stunning 19th-century maps and school teaching aids, ferns in cast-iron planters, and photomurals. The effect is a supercharged nod to American Gothic heightened by Scherer's sophisticated palette and sense of proportion. Each photograph by William Abranowicz is a lesson on color and texture, focal points, and room size. With a foreword by Anderson Cooper, whose house Scherer helped design, Kabinett & Kammer demonstrates that though styles fluctuate and tastes are unique, the principles of design are immutable, and good design is good design.
