Attracted to the Same Things
Above, my bench was upholstered early 2006 in Brunschwig & Fils'"Dzhambul." Note the natural pink starfish on the books.

To a few friends, my living room bench upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils'"Dzhambul," is sort of known as "Courtney's signature." (This linen-cotton print is one of my all-time favorites.) But I think from this month on, the piece will be viewed as "the Krista Ewart bench," because of the fab feature on her home in the latest Domino. The suzani-inspired print was actually featured on a pouf two years ago, in the premiere issue of the magazine, and Anne Coyle used the lush fabric on a sofa published in O at Home, spring 2005. Still, Krista's bedroom is such a stand-out; I flipped for the room when I first saw it in The New York Times-- love it even more with the "Dzhambul" bench.
Below, see the pink starfish on Ewart's coffee table.

BTW: Vanessa, owner of the chic Venice, California showroom, Turquoise, was right. When my copy of Domino finally arrived, it did not disappoint! Definitely a must-see.
