The orderly elegance of Aviva Stanoff's textiles, stationery, and housewares is attributable to Stanoff’s memories of childhood summers spent at her grandfather's Buddhist temple in Japan, as well as her experiences taking Japanese flower arranging and calligraphy classes. The Brooklyn-based designer uses sumptuous materials such as silk dupioni, velvet and satin as bases for her hand-made bed pillows, which feature real flower buds and blooms etched and embossed onto the fabric. Stanoff’s collection includes glass vases (the Collette, a transparent vessel embossed with gold or pewter, is a favorite), engraved wall hangings, hand-beaded clutch purses and — in a unique turn — a line of cashmere clothing for babies. What can’t she design?
There’s something for everyone at this blowout sale, which features selections from more than three dozen top bedding, furniture, tabletop, home-decor and stationery companies. Choose from storied names like Jonathan Adler, Designers Guild and Michael Aram, or sample newcomers like Aviva Stanoff and fatboy. If it has to do with luxury living, you’ll find it here.
