OMGosh I LOVE This!

Found this article in my October Romantic Homes Magazine about this New York designer who marries literature and history with home decor creating unique hand-printed home furnishings. I visited his website which is called the Old Village Hall and look at this fabulous piece!

This is called the "Shipping Settee". His work is beautiful and I so love the history in all his creations!

Here's a couple of other things he has on the site

This is called the "Dirty Little Story Wingchair". Isn't this stuff so cool!?
His fabrics are gorgeous and so unique! I could see this stuff in my hubby's Library!

This is called the "Scalping Rocking Chair". A close up of the fabric below.

This pillow is called "Ravel and Nijinsky Pillow Cover"

 This one is called the "Poe Pillow"

This is called the "Delaration Pillow on Yellow", Toile

And cool totes too! This is called "Large Red Schoolboy Tote".
You should make a trip to see the website, link above. You should
also get the magazine to see more of his work and the story if you
like this kind of stuff. I love it! And theres more in store on your visit!
Wish I could visit the shop in New York!

A short about him:  Old Village Hall is the vision of Scott Hill of New York. Scott has always been inspired by the look of history. His lifetime love of collecting books and historic artifacts has propelled him down the dusty trail in search of interesting and esoteric shops and individuals where he finds the raw material he uses to create the furniture and objects one finds at Old Village Hall. The American experience is rich in singularly inspirational viewpoints and expressive graphic remains. This is where Scott finds the rich, complex and beautiful graphic material from which to cull and assemble his work. As American experience changes before our eyes it remains important to honor the traditions of those who came before us, while also innovating new forms and ideas for those now and those to come. Traditional furniture and interior design can be approached in untraditional, novel and exotic ways by which a home or interior can be created for fun, for optimism, for mystery, for ambience, for memory.

Each fabric is hand picked and hand printed by Scott Hill. Fabrics are all natural and inks are water based and non toxic.
