Loboloup is one year old! We're exhibiting again at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Javits Center in NYC. I designed 4 new papers, which we'll be introducing at the show (and sneak previewing below). If you plan on attending ICFF, Surtex or the Stationery Show, pop on by booth 800 and say hi. Hope to see you there!
Usually, I stick to drawing and painting, and stay away from behind the camera, since I'm a lousy photographer, but this morning I couldn't help myself. I have the incredible good fortune of living just one block from Central Park. Every morning, along with scores of others, I have a lovely run (admittedly, less lovely in January and February) around the reservoir.Today, Mother Nature was really showing off and I've got proof.
I think I was about eight when my mother decided I should take piano lessons. Three years later, it was clear that my piano teacher's poodle could play much better than me. At the time, I wanted to be a ballerina.
That's right, we're in a museum! Loboloup, the boutique design company I founded with my niece, Elizabeth Wolff, is pleased to announce that the Brooklyn Museum has welcomed our wallpaper into its permanent Decorative Arts collection.
Sean from Nunoya in Barcelona was kind enough to send this photo of the first European retail customer for my new collection with Kokka. Sean and his wife, Nanako are the exclusive distributors of Kokka Co. in Spain and Portugal. This picture was taken at the Nunoya stand in Toulouse a couple of weeks ago. Their next show is Marie Claire Savoire Faire in Paris on the 21st.
I wish I had actual photos of the fabric, but until I do, I'm hoping this sampling will suffice. The collection consists of 5 designs, 4 color-ways each. The theme is motion - rockets, robots, engines, motors and gears. It's printed on the same glorious cotton/linen fabric as my last collection with Kokka.
The fabric samples for my circus collection with Kokka arrived, but my attempts at photographing them have not been as successful as I had hoped. Luckily, the folks at modes4u have more skills with a camera.
