Designer Spotlight: Seema Krish

Seema Krish, hard at work designing her fabrics.

One of my clients is asking me to help her with throw pillows to freshen up her living room space. She found Seema Krish's pillows and instantly fell in love. I went to her website, and fell in love too. Seema, a designer born in India, came to America and studied at FIT, and returned back east to start her textile studio, Azure. She designed for Calvin Klein and Donghia among others and reflect a traditional textile technique, but with modern designs.
The pillows are available in a natural linen or 100% cotton. They are also available in many sizes. I love this graceful design: Malabar Hill.
I adore the little tassel on the corner of each of these pillows. Mahalakshmi.
The Chowpatty is one of my favorites. I love the chevron patter. It's clear that these are beautiful but look at the detail below.

WOW. Each design is made with handblock technique and embroidered. Swoon.

Oh, maybe this one is my favorite. These look like leaves, and they're available in a red/pink color too! This one is called Worli.
This one's patter reminded me of water and sure enough, the design was inspired by the ocean. Each pattern has a little inspiration story behind it. Breach Candy.

They also make quilts! Imagine the work that goes into these; it's exquisite. Quilts/Throws HERE.

Word on the street/her website is that they will be selling this incredible fabric by the yard. I hope this day comes very very soon. Everyone knows how much I love to make pillows and my clients are requesting that I make them pillows from her fabric! Check out her website and her story HERE.
