We are so excited to be featured in Elle Decor’s May 2013 issue! We are IN LOVE with the spread!
Now that we’re gearing up for spring, who doesn’t dream of sitting on their porch with an ice cold lemonade in hand?
Our friends over at Chairloom have been whipping up some really great custom furniture pieces, and their most recent project is just what we’re dreaming of, a custom upholstered porch swing made from salvaged materials.
How amazing is this! Our favorite part is that it’s upholstered in our very own Ric Rac in Pool, the perfect color to brighten your day.
Now only if we lived closer to Chairloom in Ardmore, PA so we could try the swing out for ourselves!
Here at Studio Bon Textiles, we are always excited to learn about the beautiful projects that our hand-printed textiles find their way into! From sophisticated home residences to playful children’s rooms to posh restuarants, the applications are far-reaching. However, once your precious goods have been packaged and sent, we rarely get the opportunity to enjoy the final design. So this is an official Call to Entry! We would love to see how you chose to use our fabric.
Enter your project for a chance to win a feature of your project on our blog and Studio Bon fabric from our current collection. Send us your best project photograph featuring a Studio Bon textile. Send us your name or firm name, a brief description of the design, what inspired your Studio Bon selection, and a link to your website. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Call to Entry” in the subject line. The contest opens today and closes June 14th, 2013 at midnight. Contest awards are as follows:
1st Place – 4 Yards
2nd Place – 3 Yards
3rd Place – 2 Yards
All finalists will be announced on June 21st, 2013 and will be featured on the studio bon (text)iles blog. Studio Bon maintains the right to use images submitted for the Call to Entry contest.
Below is a peek at submissions from our 2011 contest, we can’t wait to see what you have to share!
Thank you to the crazily talented women who joined us from Emily Summers Design Associates, Delphi Luna and Kristen Weeks, to the generous DWR folks who lent our team the cool Moebius side table, to our friends at FLOR who asked us to participate in this exciting design event, and last, but not least, thank you to the design-lovers who attended the event. We had so much fun putting together the FLOR rug we designed for the Design-Off last night. Ready to do it again! (see Bonnee’s design above!)
(our mid-mod rocker in pattern Pennant in Midnight + Prussian, which inspired the design for the rug, looked pretty handsome too, if we do say so ourselves!)
A great night was had by all.
There’s something irresistable about the crisp lines of a Greek frieze, no? We couldn’t help but be inspired by the order and symmetry the ancients relied on to tame the chaos of Athenian life. Geometric Greek Key designs ornamented pediments, currency, clothing and art… How would you use Studio Bon’s latest interpretation, ‘Greek T’, (available in 5 crisp bright colorways on a gorgeous heavyweight white linen), to add beauty and order to your interior?

Have you heard of The Bachelor Farmer? If you’ve yet to discover this Nordic style restaurant featuring fresh produce grown on the roof of their building, you’re missing out-or haven’t visited Minneapolis, MN (but you should!) Located in the warehouse disctrict, this one-of-a-kind restaurant was just named one of America’s best new restaurants by Bon Appetit.
Last spring we were lucky enough to work with Dallas-based designer Janet Gridley, in creating this custom three-color gingham fabric for The Bachelor Farmer’s outdoor awnings. The colors were carefully selected by the Bachelor’s themselves (after many color trials) to match their unique style, and illustrate Janet’s crisp vision for their cozy hip space!
It is with great excitement that we welcome Jackie’s beautiful baby boy, Knox Roe Williams, to the Studio Bon family. He made his debut on January 7th, 2013 at 10:46am- 5 suprising weeks early! We are thrilled that he is here at last, and have enjoyed having this tiny little bundle of perfect joy around for us to love on the past few weeks. So the next time you call for a sample request, price check or stock question, and you hear a little peep, it may just be Knox saying ‘hello’! We welcome you, little guy!
