[Image above, New York Public Library ID: 74797; Creator, Séguy, E. A., from Papillons, circa 1920s]
Way back in April 2007, I mentioned some images of Séguy butterflies found in an ornament and pattern collection belonging to The New York Public Library archives. These are included in the library's vast online digital gallery along with old textile designs, historical maps, vintage posters, rare prints and illustrated books. Reproductions can be ordered as framed or unframed prints, starting at $30.
So of course the E. A. Séguy works used above in this striking bedroom from domino's June '08 issue caught my eye right away as I flipped through the new magazine. I'm in love with the juxtaposition of bold red upholstered headboards against soft, icy-blue walls, not to mention the graphic striped rug. Kudos to the stylist!
And heartfelt congratulations to Rubie Green founder, Michelle Adams, (and "my" chevron chair fabric "East Village") for making the issue too.
