Design of the Month – September 2013
YOU ASKED FOR IT – WE’RE BRINGING IT BACK
If you subscribe to our Constant Contact email news, you are already aware that we brought back our popular SPECIAL OFFER – DESIGN OF THE MONTH. In March we featured ANATOLIA; in April MOROCCO STRIPE, and in May CELTIC KNOT; in June it was GAME BOARD ; in July and August TULIP & TULIP BORDER. For September, we are offering our PISAC pattern at the 20% off Retail as our current DESIGN OF THE MONTH. On the cross-point online website, you will find a listing of companion pillows that are related in color and pattern.
The Pisac pattern was inspired by a trip to Peru’s Sacred Valley. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. High above the valley and the town of Pisac are terraced agricultural beds as seen in this photo:
I don’t know if there is a connection to this “terrace” motif that occurs as a design again and again throughout Peru – in stone, in jewelry, and in woven textiles. It reminded me of the eight pointed star that occurs in nearly all ancient cultures across the globe:
PISAC is available in three sizes and in 7 colorways (from bright to muted), as well as a repeat pattern by the square inch. Eminently suitable for upholstery, it would be stunning on a stool, ottoman or chair seat and back. Please place orders directly from the web site pattern page for PISAC. There is also a short video on youtube previously included on our FACEBOOK page.
