Jack Lenor Larsen's Greatest Hits
@current / @total
- Fresh from our October issue, we chat with textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen about everything from breaking into the New York design scene in the 1950s to personalizing a space on a limited budget.
The exhibition will showcase exceptional tribal rugs, ethnographic textiles, decorative arts, pottery, modern crafts, basketry & books chosen by Mr. Larsen himself. There will be 50+ items available ranging from $400 to $13,000 in price. Some of these valuable items include a Quilted Silk Hanging fabricated by Larsen for the Sears Tower, a Quilted Silk Robe from Uzbekistan and line with Russian printed cotton purchased in Afghanistan in the 1970s among many other timeless pieces.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s, there was no bigger name in fabric design than Alexander Girard, who beginning in 1952 held a twenty year tenure as director of design for Herman Miller's textile division. This pattern, recently reissued by Design Within Reach, is originally from 1954, but looks just as fresh today as it did then.
