i LOVE these textiles by eco friendly glasgow designer showpony. as she says on her etsy site: “bugs is a pattern with two personalities. at first it seams pretty and appealing, but part the folds to reveal what lurks underneath…. ants, beetles and spiders which feed on dead flowers and other insects amongst thorns and decay.” i’m thinking about placing an order… (via micasa, thanks!)

also new from karen walker— her line for swanndri, which “is inspired by a weekend away at the lake. imagery of smooth, reflective water, lake houses, pumice, reeds, overhanging trees, swans, kayaks and wooden lake boats have been drawn on to create the design and feel of the range”. above: photo of the swanndri store in wellington city, new zealand.
