Looking at the blues and reds, I thought it would be interesting to pair the antique chintz with one of Madeline Weinrib's new sumptuous silk-velvet ikats: handwoven Lucy in Sky. Note the hint of red threads outlining Weinrib's lighter blues? More on the artist-designer's softer-than-soft Central Asian textiles in an upcoming post.
