Living with Scarves
Have you ever seen Horst's photograph of Jackie O's circa 1973 library pillows made from Liberty silk scrarves? Or the lacquered scarves on her sister Lee Radziwell's dining room walls? Maybe Ivanka Trump's more recent framed scarf rings a bell?
Amelia Thorpe's terrific piece about scarves (the fashion accessory and the new Thames & Hudson book by Nicky Albrechtsen and Fola Solanke) in Selvedge, issue 41, got me revisiting these past posts. I love the idea of decorating with scarves but at the moment don't have a great spot for a framed one (or space for another pillow). A commitment-free alternative would be to use the incredibly graphic hardcover Scarves as a jumping off point for a fresh desktop tablescape: in short, style and substance. With coverage of major textile designers and artists, in addition to fashion designers, manufacturers, related museums, and dealers, the 300-plus-page edition is a helpful resource to have on hand.
