designer's notebook - from founder Anki Spets

This time I wanted to design something bold but versatile that could transition in and out of the bedroom. The new coverlets, SQUARES and NATURE, are soft enough to sleep with, but also sturdy enough to be used as sofa covers, on a table, or brought to the park and beach. They are large scale prints.  The coverlet itself is a soft lightweight cotton...

NEW LINEN

May, 17

This season we’re introducing three new linen lines, each woven in a distinct way. I thought it would be nice to break down the differences between them beyond just the colors. The way that a fabric is woven not only affects visual patterns, but can drastically alter the way it feels and drapes. The first is the updated SIMONE, a...

I began my design process by establishing a few basic parameters. I wanted to: Riff on Art Deco or Wiener Werkstätte motifs (Maybe) name the pattern FRANK, if I could invent a...

By now it's no secret I'm from Sweden. While soon I'll have been a New Yorker longer than I lived back home, most of my inspiration —why I do what I do and even how I do what I do — is still rooted in Sweden. Just walking the streets of Stockholm, I find motivation in the architecture: in the...

Aside from just walking around and finding Stockholm’s quiet, tucked-away neighborhoods without shops — yes, there are still a few! — and always pausing to take in each block's hidden architectural moments, here’s my short list of places I like to visit — over and over again. #1 SVENSKT TENN. Josef Frank textiles at SVENSKT TENN in Stockholm. You can...

Anki provided some great insight into the joys and difficulties of starting a business.
