Wall to wall Josef Frank

If you love Josef Frank textiles like I do, check out this boutique in Tokyo for Ballantyne Cashmere designed by Nicola Quadri. Two contrasting botanical patterns from Frank's collection (Brazil and Teheran) were chosen to cover the vertical surfaces in the interior...definitely not a faux pas in this case. The rest of the space is simple with minimal furniture, white walls, natural oak plank flooring...creating the balance needed to pull this bold move off.

Here are some of my favorite Josef Frank textiles below:

Vegetable tree (This is the one I am using in my house...)


La Plata
