Classes in Japanese flower arranging and calligraphy, supplemented by summers spent at her grandfather's Buddhist temple in Japan, account for the ordered elegance of Aviva Stanoff's textiles, stationery, and home goods. The Brooklyn-based designer uses sumptuous materials such as silk dupioni and satin as bases for her unique pieces, which she prints and assembles by hand. She’s also one to experiment: Her velvet pillows, for example, feature real flower buds and blooms etched and embossed onto the fabric. The end result? Work that blurs the line between decor and art.
