The Allure of Vintage Paisley

 

Although I would never advocate cutting up an intact antique paisley shawl, there are many so called “cutters” out there that are suitable for making pillows, lampshades, etc.  What is it about that splash of red that lights up a room?  Although Pottery Barn and many other major retailers are doing nice reproductions it is hard to replicate the richness of the handmade paisley shawls. 

Dan Marty often incorporates it into his designs.  Who doesn’t love Dan Marty! Notice the shade on the beautiful floor lamp on the left.
