New Year, New Inspiration

Spending this past month in India kicked off my new year with a wealth of design inspiration. We spent three weeks hunkering down with family in Calcutta – a bustling Indian city nestled in West Bengal – known for its rich history of craft and talented artisans – from embroidery to sculpture and sketching to metal […] Read more…
