Remembering, and thanking, Merle Lindby-Young

Did I ever thank her for the inspiration, for being that beacon pulling me toward a career that would come to fill and fulfill my life, for showing me how to be firm and fair, demanding and understanding, professional and accessible?

Jack Lenor Larsen – In Admiration

Reading a recent interview with Larsen in Dwell magazine made me realize that although he has created some of the most exquisite and expensive fabrics available, Larsen also has an egalitarian view of owning fine, authentic textiles and bringing them into our lives. As he suggests in the article, just one yard of his fabric could upholster 4 dining room chairs, and I might add, an ottoman, bench or even become a stand alone wall hanging.
