Ever on the lookout for pieces to finish my loft in Seattle, I practically comb Etsy on a daily basis. My latest discovery is perfect for adding a touch of the Mediterranean to your home, while also providing guests with extra seating.

La Casa Decotó was founded by maker Montse and specializes in just that: small-batch rugs, ottomans, pillows, and other textiles. Some pieces are hand-crocheted by Montse in her Barcelona studio, and exhibit a heavy influences from North African crafts. Other pieces in the shop are vintage and truly one of a kind, making this shop a go-to as I get settled into my new place.

Enhabiten

Ever on the lookout for more decor to add to my new loft, Enhabiten came across my desk (read: screen) and I got really, really excited. Created by New Hampshire-based designer Liane Tyrrel, Enhabiten features gorgeous home goods, plus a few other great pieces like jewelry and accessories.

I’m especially drawn to the home textiles for their bohemian, casual vibes. Each piece is dyed in small batches with natural dyes, which are locally sourced. Many of the textiles are vintage, but given a new lease on life with Tyrrel’s silhouettes and applications. With so many gorgeous pieces, I don’t even know where to start!

Jujujust

I have a confession to make: Despite the plethora of weavings and woven wall art lately, I haven’t been able to commit to any one style or piece for my home. Well, that is until I recently discovered these pieces by Jujujust. Bright, bold, and three-dimensional, these weavings have my name written all over them. They are just so amazingly impactful, I can’t help myself.

Each piece is handmade by Judit Just, an artist residing in Asheville, North Carolina, but originally from Barcelona. Growing up, she first explored sewing and crafting in the footsteps of her mother, and even made clothes for her dolls. Then, after studying fashion design, Just craved the ability to make something with her hands and thus explored sculpture. These weavings are clearly an amazing marriage of her two disciplines in the best way possible!

Eradura

I recently moved into an old loft in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle, complete with exposed brick walls. As I decorate the space, I have this stronger and stronger urge to switch things up and move on from the gallery wall. I crave a mix of art, with touches of the old school. These hand-embroidered, felt pieces by Etsy artist Eradura would be absolutely perfect.

The subject matter is inspired by the Southwest and “all wandering and worrying” shopkeeper and maker Erika Duran has done. Most of her designs are made of felted wool with touches of dense hand embroidery. For a sneak peek of items to come, as well as her making process, be sure to follow Eradura on Instagram.

Oyyo

Dhurries are truly one of the most durable rugs out there, but I’ve often felt like they veer a bit too traditional for my taste. Then along came the dhurries by Oyyo. The brightly hued, graphically designed rugs are handcrafted in Rajasthan, India, of 100 percent organic cotton. And the vibrant colors are achieved with vegetable dyes derived from local plants.

Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén are the designers behind Stockholm-based Oyyo. They pull inspiration from “exploring the convergence of cultures, design, and fine craftsmanship.” The result? Rugs that are simple yet bold—and are on the wish list for my new loft.
