KALEIDOSCOPIC DESIGNS FROM BROOKLYN'S ESKAYEL

Provide is ecstatic about the new Eskayel cushions that just arrived at the showroom. Lead designer Shannon Campanaro continues to amaze us with her unique kaleidoscopic designs. The new arrivals are from her 'Jangala collection', the 'Playland capsule collection' and the 'Island collection'.

Shannon started Eskayel in 2009 when she decided her apartment needed a re-vamp. Wanting to create an accent wall with interesting wallpaper, she thought "why don't I just make my own wallpaper"? From there she found a way to print her custom patterns using a large scale repeat and ended up being incredibly pleased with the results. Gaining recognition on a large scale, her company flourished quickly. Being able to do what she loves, her passion for art drives her dedication to the company (which she runs with her boyfriend, interns and a lot of freelance workers).

Drawing her inspiration from the everyday and her many travels, her fabrics are whimsical and eccentric. I find myself staring at the ambitious shapes as if i'm doing an inkblot test and I need to figure out what I  can make of the designs. It is fascinating to me how she can take a piece of her own art; digitally manipulate it and produce the most unusually beautiful patterns.

Sustainably produced in the US, these cushions make a striking addition to any space. For more information, please visit our website www.providehome.com

THE NEW CRYSTALLINE SERIES BY NICHE MODERN




Niche Modern recently launched the latest addition to their line up, the 'Crystalline' series. Veering away from their otherwise more muted colour choices, this collection introduces bright bold colour and new shapes that are centred on the idea of sharp angles and edges.

Each pendant is hand made carefully, slowly and with a lot of love. The angular forms can be difficult to achieve with molten glass so molds are required to help the process of achieving clean cut shapes. The line's four pieces include the Axia, Condesa, Delinea and the Trove, all inspired by the idea of crystal structures and how they produce different layers and angles that mesh together in perfect harmony.

Available in nine different colours, including clementine, tulip, rose, chartreuse and turquoise. These pendants are beautiful on their own or grouped together to create a striking impact in any space.

For more information, please send us and email at info@providehome.com or give us a call at 604.632.0095

NEW CREATIONS FROM DESIGNER AND ARTIST MARTHA STURDY












































Last week I visited the always inspiring Vancouver showroom of designer and artist Martha Sturdy where I was enthralled by the beautiful form of her Langara Brass Bowls. Each are individually hand crafted using spun brass and finished with their signature STURDY evolving patina. Elegantly presented on a white marble resin table – these bowls are timeless accessories that will add sophistication, colour and texture to your home.

Another new release to the STURDY collection (and currently on view at Provide) is the large scale servers made in Martha's choice resin colour – white marble. These are as dramatic as the are practical for dining and entertaining both indoors and out.

For these and other designs from the STURDY collection, please contact us at Provide via our website at www.providehome.com.
