You know, earthy golds and orange-y reds filled Steinem's real-life circa 1970 brownstone, too. And apparently she is another icon of the era who decorated with scarves, embracing all-over pattern. Remember Lee Radziwill's walls covered with lacquered Sicilian scarves? According to Barbara Plumb, author of Horst Interiors, Steinem's warm apartment alcove was swathed with Indian examples.

If you're only up for swathing a summer garden table with spicy-hued fabrics, these Laureline napkins and tablecloths from Les Indiennes' previously discussed artisanal Kalamkari Collection could be the answer.
