PILLOWS FROM MADELINE WEINRIB'S COLLECTION
Textile and rug designer extraordinaire, Madeline Weinrib, recently made the enormous choice to close her eponymous atelier after 20 years. It was a decision she didn't make overnight, nor was it made lightly.
We are deeply saddened by the news, as we admire Madeline on so many levels and have frequently used her rugs and pillows in our design projects for the most vibrant pops of color and texture. All we know now is that we will miss her unwavering authenticity in the world of interior design and that her departure will leave a void that is nearly impossible to fill.
That said, there is also zero doubt in our minds that Madeline is already seeking new ways to passionately fill her creative cup - likely returning to her roots as a painter, amongst many other exciting endeavors. We can't help but feel excited for her and what the future holds, and as two of Madeline's biggest fan girls and all-around admirers, we genuinely can't wait to see what she's up to next.
We had the opportunity, not so long ago, to scoop up several of her ridiculously gorgeous one-of-a-kind handmade silk ikat and vintage embroidered suzani pillows for a steal, and are passing them along to fellow Madeline Weinrib lovers. If y'all have not yet had the opportunity to own an original design of Madeline's but want to savor a small part of this iconic textile designer, as we do, then this trunk show is for you.
And if you're one of the lucky ones to score a thing or two, we truly hope you'll cherish them and pass them down to your grandbabies. You can also do Madeline and so, so, so many other artisanal business owners a big old solid by continuing to support their work and shunning the mass retailers that pilfer and plunder their original designs.
