I've mentioned Bonnie Cashin's graffiti wall a lot. Perhaps too many times. (It's a great idea!) But I've never highlighted her Chinese screen. The lush colors were splendid and served as the perfect backdrop for her sleek mid-century furniture. Below is a grainy image of Cashin in her New York apartment in the 1960s. A little something to satisfy everyone who craves more new episodes of Mad Men.
If you are not familiar with Bonnie Cashin, much of her visionary aesthetic, especially her color sense, can be seen today in the looks coming from J Crew. The bags below are circa 1968.
For a variety of Asian pieces, visit Pagoda Red.
Cashin images are from New York Times magazine, 2001
