Ilano at West Coast Craft

by Nancy on July 8, 2015

anthologymag-blog-ilano-1I was so happy to see Ilano‘s booth at the West Coast Craft show last month. Roselio Ilano was featured in Issue No. 18/Winter 2015 and I loved reading her story. It was fascinating to learn that Ilano started off studying cartography at UC Berkeley and how she evolved to designing textiles. I wasn’t able to attend the photo shoot, but was excited to see her goods in person at WCC.

Ilano partnered up with women artisans from Oaxaca, Mexico, and designed a line of personal and home accessories. The result? Beautiful handmade goods with an updated and modern edge. The techniques used by the skilled craftswomen were passed down from generation to generation. It amazes me that the vibrant colors in the yarn are all achieved by plants.

Anthology Issue 19 Cover Even if the spring-like weather hasn’t quite arrived where you live yet … The spring issue of Anthology is coming soon! The subscription mailing is getting under way, and we’ll be shipping to stores soon, too.

The theme for Issue No. 19 is Inside/Outside—and I am especially crazy about this cover, which features the Miami home of event designer David Stark. There are plenty more shots of his interior in the pages of the new issue, along with other wonderful stories. This online preview includes just a sampling. As always, we hope you enjoy it!

Lena Wolff x Erica Tanov Fabric

by Anh-Minh on February 26, 2015

ericatanov_openerIn our 4+ years of producing Anthology, designer Erica Tanov‘s home remains one of my all-time favorites. We featured it waaay back in Issue No. 8, and then posted some outtakes from our shoot. (The image above, taken by Kelly Ishikawa, is from the published story.)

I’ve been familiar with Erica, her work, and her Bay Area shops for years—I remember working on Fourth Street in Berkeley when I was in grad school and popping into the outpost there during my lunch breaks and just marveling at all of the beautiful things she purveyed. Right now, I’m coveting the fabrics in her collaboration with artist Lena Wolff.

My mom taught me how to sew when I was a kid, and it’s one of the crafts that I’d like to take up again. And this line of graphic fabrics just might be what finally motivates me to bust out the (no doubt dusty) sewing machine!

Nightwood NY

by Anh-Minh on February 20, 2015

ag_nightwood_issue18I’ve been working in Park City, Utah, this week and woke up to a flurry of snow today. It got me thinking about Anitha Gandhi’s home, shown above and featured in Issue No. 18 of Anthology. It may seem odd that I associated wintry weather with such a colorful abode—unless you know Anitha’s approach to her décor:

No matter what the conditions outside, she could at least conjure an interior that transports her to a warm destination. “I wanted it to feel like the Caribbean, with super saturated colors,” Anitha says.

Anitha worked with Nightwood NY, a Brooklyn-based furniture, textile, and interior design duo. Ry Scruggs and Nadia Yaron were responsible for so many of the pieces in Anitha’s home. I couldn’t believe how much they designed, built, or sourced! Below are a few more images from their portfolio.


The next time I’m in New York, I’d love to visit Nightwood’s showroom, which is open by appointment only. In the meantime, I’ve been checking out their online shop and have got my eye on the totem weaving.

P.S. If you’d like to see the full feature on Anitha’s home, be sure to pick up a copy of Issue No. 18 from one of our stockists.
