Suzani, meaning "needlework," are traditional textiles from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other areas of Central Asia, embroidered with birds, sun and moon patterns, flowers and vines. The patterns and colors tend to be pretty bold, so whatever piece of furniture is covered in the fabric is often the focal point of the room where it's used.
Isn't this a beautiful setting for a garden party with global flair?
The ethnic fabrics work well with a neutral palette and can really brighten up a room by adding pops of color.
Used as a wall-hanging, the suzani is a bit reminiscent of college-dorm tapestries but far more exotic...
There are so many visually stimulating patterns and objects in this bedroom. It's amazing that the suzani, chandelier, ikat pillows, gilded picture frame and metallic lamps work together to create an eclectic boho haven.
How about this sitting area? Perfection. A jewel-tone Suzani patterned fabric chair with nail heads (love) and Moroccan style lantern.
While I'm on the off-beat, one-of-a-kind kick, I'll share this latest addition to my wish list... a walnut headboard.
So glad Monday is down! Happy Tuesday!
