i heart

a couple of days ago i was doing an interview for a local paper* and was asked who my favorite designers were, and as i answered (in an email a day later, because of course i'm terrible on the spot and can barely remember my name off the top of my head), i thought "hmm, this would make a good blog post..."

and so, in no particular order, here are some of my most favorite people who make (or made) beautiful things:

*josef frank [swedish, early 20th century, designed textiles and a lot more but all i really care about are the textiles...]

* william morris [the most famous designer of the arts and crafts movement, designed gorgeous wallpaper]

* marimekko [iconic finnish textile and clothing design company]

*dries van noten [dutch fashion designer who throws together prints in brilliantly crazy ways]

*jill bliss - [designer/artist from california]

*p.s. the interview will be in the may issue, i'll be sure to post....
