Just In: Seema Krish Beachcomber Textile Collection

Seema Krish is a San Francisco-based textile designer who used to have a studio in Boston. I’ve posted images of her Boston studio along with later Seema Krish textile collections  of her Boston studio and textile collections.

The newest Seema Krish block-print fabric collection was  inspired by Northeast summer havens—Chatham, Yarmouth, and Nantucket.

Seema Krish textiles are created using traditional Indian techniques. Preserving India’s heritage of block printing, hand embroidery, and weaving is integral to her mission of creating beautiful block-printed fabrics with a modern sensibility. The fabrics are made by artisans in Bangalore, India, who are paid fair wages in safe workshops with whom Seema Krish maintains long standing relationships.

Chatham, a seaside town located in the elbow of Cape Cod is a botanical pattern reminiscent of the flowers found there.

Yarmouth inspired this modern floral pattern with an Indienne twist.

The Nantucket island pattern by Seema Krish draws from the lyrical repetition of sand dunes.

They look gorgeous on their own or layered, monochromatic or blending the various palettes. There are wallcoverings in complementary patterns too.

Just In: Serena & Lily Introduces New Rattan Furnishings for Indoors & Outdoors

In case you’re not excited enough about spring. StyleCarrot partner Serena & Lily has introduced 300+ new pieces, including rattan furniture and  accessories. Can you say scalloped rattan tray?

If you’ve swooned over the bohemian Avalon daybed but had nowhere to put one, consider pre-ordering the new king or queen-sized Avalon bed, a celebration of coastal Cali decor with enough gravitas for a New England interior.

I love the marble-topped pedestal dining table with wrapped rattan base for a double dose of natural materials and a perfect blend of city meets the sea.

Here are nine new introductions of rattan furniture and accessories from Serena & Lily:

Serena & Lily Bohemian Rattan Bed

The  beloved bohemian Avalon daybed by Serena & Lily has been reimagined as a king or queen-sized Avalon bed. The original inspiration was a 1940s French bed that they company rendered in rattan for a coastal casual vibe. This rattan bed is available with a footboard or without. The white ceramic, textured table lamp is a coastal take on the Kelly Wearstler Linden lamp.

Serena & Lily Balboa Rattan Coffee Table

Serena & Lily has added a wood and handwoven rattan coffee table with brass capped-feet to its Balboa collection. At 46-inches in diameter and a bottom storage shelf, it’s very efficient, and its appearance lends itself to a coastal Cali living room or a more polished city decor. Paired with a braided abaca rug for complete coastal appeal.

Serena & Lily Rattan Pedestal Dining Table

The new Serena & Lily Southampton dining table has a 30-inch diameter marble top and rattan pedestal base. Paired here with the everyone’s favorite, Serena & Lily’s take on the classic Parisian bistro chair, the Riviera dining chair made with a rattan frame and woven resin seat.
