DODOcase X FV

  Recently we’ve been interested in extending our patterns and vision to other objects and I’m happy to share with you today that we’ve collaborated with DODOcase  – the San Francisco based premiere maker of book-bound and hand-crafted cases for iPad’s and Tablets – to make three Flat Vernacular patterns available in the Build-A-DODOcase customizer. DODOcase produces in the United States, and are reviving manufacturing using an old artisanal method of making something contemporary, which is right in line with Flat Vernacular’s focus and method of making.  A partnership between...

February & March: WHOA

It was nearly impossible not to end up putting some in your mouth. Smoke from the colored smoke bombs lingered in the trees after we set them off. It... Read The Rest →

Wallpaper Photo Shoot

Rather than continuing to shoot the wallpaper in a traditional way (fake room setting, objets d’art, chairs and lamps for scale) for FV’s fresh new website design, Brian came up with the ingenius idea of shooting the wallpaper as you see below. We spent a weekend in the wilds of Connecticut setting up the fake wall, lighting 40 smoke bombs, throwing paint, and using silly string in front of and on top of our patterns. It was 48 hours of F U N. Flora in ‘Lacquered Garden’ is shown above.... Read The Rest →

Elle Decor’s Design Innovators pop up shop

It is an honor to be included in Elle Decor’s Design Innovators pop up shop. I was featured in the publication last year at this time for a wild and wonderful sticker wallpaper project that I did here in Manhattan. The other designers included in the shop were also featured in Elle Decor’s Talent section; and oh boy, what a talented lot they are. I particularly loved the lacquered trays by Billy Cotton. The window display for the shop is on the corner of Third Avenue & 60th Street. See... Read The Rest →
