1.  Between the Lines
Created by Richard Smith for No.9 by Jim Thompson, this Maze Border offers a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional Tibetan textile design. Echoing the recurring linear designs of the brand’s Tibetan Maze print and crafted from a durable blend of viscose and cotton, the border’s geometric pattern serves as a dynamic edging for curtains, furniture or accessories. Crafted from natural vegetable dyes, prints come in four different color schemes, including a refreshing mix of blue and white, pictured. Available locally through Jim Thompson at ADAC.

2.  In the Loop
Caroline Cecil’s best-selling loop print, shown here in a punchy cobalt hue, creates dynamic pattern and movement through a series of thick, overlapping circles. Screen-printed with high-quality India ink, the linen fabric is light enough for summer months, while its richly pigmented design adds a bold touch to any space. Available locally through BRADLEY at ADAC. 

3.  Mixed Marble
Christopher Spitzmiller is known for his keen design sensibilities and classically inspired aesthetic, but his Ginger Jar Lamps in delft blue marble are climbing to the top of our favorites list. A milky mix of deep blue and white, the thick marble stem sits atop a luxurious water-gilt base and provides a subtle yet striking hint of saturation. The inky, blue marble pattern is also offered in Spitzmiller bowls, plates and additional lamp designs. Available locally at Christopher Spitzmiller at ADAC.

4.  Range of Style
With a nod to the romantic culture of Italian cuisine, Viking Range’s new line of Viking Tuscany Ranges pairs old-world aesthetic with modern convenience. Built by Italian craftsmen and manufactured in Scandicci, Italy, the ranges are sized and featured to accommodate American architecture and lifestyles. In addition to a striking dark blue (our favorite), the ranges—available in varying widths and surface configurations—are also sold in stainless, black and white finishes.

5. Bold Streak
In her new rehabilitated dishware line, Mixte, Nashville-based artist Sarah Cihat experiments with colored porcelain, texture and metallics to produce a bold, tactile collection of bowls and plates, all of which boast a thick, copper lustre rim. Cihat slip casts each piece by hand in grey porcelain, adding contrasting streaks of cobalt blue, bright pink, white and black.
