Brooke Hodge has written an interesting short article entitled “Seeing Things | Weaving New Mexico” in the Design section of the T-Magazine section of The New York Times, looking at contemporary handwoven rugs, blankets and other elements, from workshops in and around Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the southwest United States.  Historically inspired contemporary handweaving , easily integrated into a diversity of interior decorating styles.

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 20 April 2011

Pilar Viladas has written a short, to-the-point article entitled “Milan Report | The Wrap-Up, Part I” for the T-Magazine section of The New York Times, offering her take on some of the highlights of the bewilderingly vast Salone del Mobile 2011 (Milan Design Week) which took place last week in Milan.  What catches her attention?  Well, to begin with, rockers and rugs.  And Urquiolan ubiquity.  An abundance of very nice photos, as seen above and below, by Mattia Zoppellaro.
