Ever since I laid eyes on Doug Johnston‘s rope bowls and planters, I’ve been more attuned to this type of textile coiling. The style lends itself beautifully to asymmetry and  imperfect subtleties. Fast forward, and while perusing Mr Kitly, the Australian-based homewear site, I stumbled across work from a design studio based out of Brooklyn, called New Friends.

Founded by Alexandra Segreti and Kelly Rakowski, with a joint interest in textiles and housewears, their products combine weaving and a collage to create unique combinations and one-off pieces. Beyond the planters, if you’re int he market for a rug, you can’t go wrong with one of these beauties.
