"Add a dash of monochromatic panache with design that simultaneously evokes the understated and the bold. In shades of striking black, vintage handwoven velvet interlaces grosgrain ribbon. Let this luxurious fabric, backed in charcoal taffeta, be a portal to luxury and grand elegance. In the early eighties, a prominent Texas fashion designer created these intricate hand-loomed ribbon fabrics to be used in her women’s couture clothing line for Saks Fifth Avenue. Bolts of these impressive fabrics have been uncovered by Cush Cush Design and transformed into this group of exclusive pillows for the stylists at Standard." As founder and editor of Standard magazine, interiors pioneer Kelly LaPlante leads a team of design-obsessed style exhibitionists to create the uninhibited mix of interiors, trend predictions, interviews, architecture, and fashion that is so loved by its design-aficionado readership. In this collection of gifts and accessories for the home, Kelly shares her passion for the authentic and the unexpected, including many limited-edition commissioned pieces straight from the pages of Standard.
