Find of the Week: Italian Lattice


The Italian lattice mirror above is from the 1940s and is available through Capitol Furnishings. The bold trellis design reminds me of those geometric David Hicks carpets, circa 1970, as well as Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis fabric, seen below made-up in a pillow designed by Anna Spiro.

I actually found a daybed similar to this last night. I really do like this trellis pattern a lot.

Pink M, your post on lattice is great!

Both the mirror and cushion look great. I wonder how a different colored frame would work on the mirror. The white is a little bland, but a bolder color would make the frame more assertive and would make the mirror less practical to actually use.

However, I'm not sure what it means that the cushion was designed by so-and-so. It's just a square cushion - not much design needed.

Hi,
Just a quick note on the pillow: Anna Spiro had this one made-up for her shop, Black and Spiro, in Australia. She has a great eye for pairing a pattern's scale with the right size and shape pillow, plus she knows when not to over embellish with trim. So, I wanted to give her credit for both the image and the pillow.
