Cleaning Luxury Fabrics
With all the types of fabric blends, cleaning materials, and temperature settings, maintenance and care for fabrics can be pretty confusing and intimidating! There are some general rules such as don’t over-wash and when in doubt, use cold water, but the rules and methods of care do go a bit deeper than that… depending on the fabric, of course!
That’s why we’ve decided to create this series of care and methods for fabrics! In this series of guides, we’ll give you short and easy lists for your reference that will note qualities of the fabrics, how to wash them (or not wash them), and when it’s safe (or not!) to iron a fabric! We’ll start with a small group–the Luxury fabrics–consisting of Silk, Velvet, Wool, and Leather.

Furniture as Art
How Should Furniture Respond to the World Around It?
Artists have long been interested in the domestic space, but as the distinction between art and design becomes ever more blurred, more artists are making objects that function, and more designers are making sculpture. Plus: Five designers create original furniture, exclusively for T.
WHEN WE TALK about artists making furniture, an old debate over whether design counts as art (and vice versa) rises once again to the surface, like a shark baited with chum. Furniture designers aren’t, by the logic of the category, really artists, and artists, by that same logic, must normally be engaged in a higher pursuit than furniture…
These Artists Would Love for You to Sit on Their Work
A zany perversity is rampant in the studios of many young, contemporary creators who are trampling the boundary between furniture and fine art. For artists who want to break rules, this offers tempting propositions: chairs that aren’t meant for sitting, lamps that are less interested in illumination than in aesthetic verve, home goods that don’t work like they should. Rebellious aesthetes are turning old, recognizable forms—the sofa, the shelf—into objects for considerable contemplation. In their studios, provocation and individual expression override comfort and utility…
