DALLAS SHAW – Styling with Maven

We had the privilege of partnering up with Dallas Shaw on a collaboration.  Dallas is an incredibly talented illustrator who works with brands like Oscar de la Renta, Essie, and DKNY.  She did a photo shoot with a few of our wedding blankets as a backdrop and we LOVE how they turned out!

Fall Photo Shoot — some favorites

We recently shot all of our fall/winter blankets and had to share a few of our favorite photos! We came across a cement wall that worked perfect for the industrial theme we were going for with the shoot. All of the pom pom blankets you see below, are handwoven by our artisan partner in Morocco.  You can shop the below collection HERE!

NEW BENI COLLECTION!

You’ve seen reproductions of Beni Ourains’ in current decor stores and in design magazines – but there is nothing like the real deal. Hand woven in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco by the Beni Ourain tribe, with pile of off-white and black natural wool. They are typically woven with simple harlequin patterns and tribal graphics.  They style will in both Contemporary, Modern or Mid-Century style spaces.  We are true believers they are a staple piece for every home!

We just got a new collection of Beni Ourains in and thought we would share how to style with these one-of-a-kind beauties!

BOUCHEROUITES | as wall hangings

Boucherouites are some of the most abstract and vibrant rug style to source, which makes them that much more fun!  They are made out of recycled fabrics–clothing, bed sheets, blankets, whatever was available. They range from diamond, symmetrical patterns to free form abstracts and are all one-of-a-kind pieces (making them that much more special!).  Most vintage pieces date from the 1960s-1980s.

We are always looking for new ways to decorate a home or space with global decor, especially our rugs, and we came across a must for anyone who has a blank wall.  Put a Boucherouite on it!  We can’t wait to try this out!

HANDIRA BODY PILLOWS | handwoven in marrakech

We are so excited to share one of our newest products, Handira Body Pillows! They are absolutely beautiful and make the perfect addition to any bed!  Check them out HERE!

Each Handira (ie: wedding blanket) was hand-picked from the souks of Marrakech. We selected a vintage cream & pink kilim to use as the backing.  The kilim is complimentary to the texture and simplicity of the front of the pillow.  We partnered with a weaving workshop to sew these beautiful textiles together. These handcrafted pillows make a statement on any bed or couch they are placed on!

SALVAGE ONE SHOOT || styling with maven

A few weeks back, we did a photo shoot at a local event space, Salvage One. It is an old industrial loft (3 levels!) with vintage furniture scattered throughout.  Oh my goodness, we were in heaven!  Had to share a few of our favorite shots of our products staged within.

 

_MG_9385
Featuring our Moroccan Kilim rug. Looks beautiful with a mid-century leather couch.
_MG_9389
The details in the rug are simply stunning.
_MG_9408
Wedding blankets can make the most beautiful rugs.
_MG_9417
With simple furniture pieces like these, you can really spruce up a space with a colorful rug. It helps add warmth and texture to the space.
_MG_9437
Kilim pillows… They are just perfection where ever you place them!
_MG_9438
Try layering a chair (or couch) with a pom-pom blanket. These XL pom-poms help add a new dimension to a simple formed piece of furniture.
_MG_9448
Loving everything that is happening in the picture. The vintage sign is incredible and so is the chair! Our kilim pillow just adds a nice color pop.
_MG_9457
Truly, rag rugs can be used in any space. Obsessed with this look.
_MG_9468
Boucherouite rag rugs layered on a bar. Gotta have some fun while staging.
_MG_9496
If you are looking for a more luxury/classic rug for a space, try working with a Beni Ourain! They are full of texture but are neutral enough to fit into any space.
_MG_9512
Floor pillows are the most fun to decorate with! You can add them just about anywhere and they add additional seating for gatherings and parties. (Or they are a perfect ‘grow up’ pillow that children love to lay on, while keeping your space classy)
_MG_9517
This glass window was insane! Just loooove this shot.

_MG_9575
This bar was was beyond incredible, I had to stage our most luxurious rugs next to it. Aren’t they beautiful?!
_MG_9583
You can’t go wrong with pom-pom blankets!!! They look phenomenal where ever you place them.

PARK COLLECTIVE — azilal rug

On a recent shopping trip through the souks of Marrakesh, we found this incredible Azilal Rug! After posting a picture of it on Instagram, Designer Jolene Kraus knew she needed to have it! Check out how she styled her living room around this rug, it’s incredibly beautiful!

Check out this room!  I absolutely love how she placed our azilal rug on an over sized jute rug. The little pops of pale pink plays so nicely with the neon orange.
