Style Court

Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


Just In at Black & Spiro

Unfortunately for those of us in the U.S., Black & Spiro is located in Australia. Still, I had to share one of owner Anna's latest finds: the Happy Chic vintage stool, above. The original needlepoint -- maybe a flame stitch Bargello? -- feels so very Sister Parish. There's something though about the clear Kool-Aid colors and rhythmic pattern that also remind me of artist Sonia Delaunay.
