Irwin Weiner ASID - I believe in coincidences ... or what some people refer to as "happy accidents." I was early for a client appointment in lower Manhattan last month, so I went for a neighborhood stroll and discovered some teriffic design stores. The next few posts on Design2Share will be devoted to telling you what I discovered during my pre-meeting walkabout. First, let me tell you about Michele Varian.
What a great store! Loaded with charm, fascinating accessories, and unique quirkiness, Michele's store showcases her signature designer pillows and handbags, but goes beyond to jewelry, tabletop, wall accessories, and so on and so on and so on.
This fashionista and DIY fanatic hits all the right notes, and I'm featuring some of my favorite pillows from her Spring 2012 collection. Don't you love the signature way Michele uses highly-visible pillow ties - sometimes leather, sometimes fabric?
