Anemone Chairs

Are these just summertime perfect?….Oh yes they are. Stop by Oliveira Textiles in Bristol, RI. 219 High Street, at the corner of Church St. One block up from the main drag, Hope Street.

RISD Presentation - Surface Designers Group

Enjoyable evening meeting with other designers at the generous invitation of Adrian Zeller - textile design instructor / RISD CE….good to catch up with a couple of my former students and meet some new ones. The best part was sharing our collective enthusiasm for the world of textiles.
