Bargello That Makes a Statement!

Decorator Jonathan Adler has recently completed another chic residence for BFF and fashion designer, Liz Lange. This time around he helped her with her weekend house in Westchester County, New York.

Jonathan is well known for designing his interiors with graphic patterns, colorful accents, and bits and pieces of glam...take a peek!

But what caught my eye most in this article, were the Bargello pillows that he produces and sells on his website. He has even used them in another one of Liz's homes...remember this room?

If you aren't familiar with Bargello, it is a type of needlepoint embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. (thank you Wikipedia)
It really is an interesting technique and produces such fabulous, mod geometric pillows.

Jonathan has used them in a lot of his interiors. They are perfect for those spaces that need some extra pattern and added color.





The king of pizzazz has really wowed us with these!

I love that interior. And his pillows are very current along with that graphic black and white rug! Great post!

I love the first 2 rooms - I think the flooring is what makes them stand out.
