I Love Turtles!


This morning’s New York Times contained a little blurb about the new online outlet discounts from Scalamandre, that luxe textiles company usually open only to designers. Of course I had to check it out and was immediately in lust with this hilarious turtle fabric! It’s aptly named "Galapagos" and it’s a steal at only $26.95 per yard. I’ve been looking for the perfect fabric to reupholster the terrific Bergere that my grandmother dug out of her garage for me….

Can you see it covered in turtles? Hmmm…might be a bit much. But maybe a solid pink velvet, or an awning stripe in white and fuchsia, complemented by a cozy turtle accent pillow? What do you think?

    Glad I stumbled on your blog. I think the chair would look great with the turtles. The unexpected is the height of fashion!
