"There's nothing like a few needlepoint pieces in your home to add some throwback flair, and John and Jason Oliver cannot get enough of this vintage and oversize wool needlepoint painting of a Paris complete with a big old bridge over the river Seine and a few boats and do note the sort of weird perspective. It's a tad surreal this needlepoint, n'est-ce pas?" John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny's antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian élan. "If you are looking for beige and boring," says Jason, "go bark up someone else's tree."
