"'Here a suzani, there a suzani, everywhere a suzani!' That's Jason Oliver scampering about like Dorothy en route to the Emerald City as he admires our stash of vintage suzani textiles, including this fabulous version with its flame-like flowers. Our advice: Wrap this around a boring armchair, and, voila!, instant gorgeous."
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."
