A few months back I was in a shop called 29Armstrong. It is one of my must stops when visiting Edmonton, AB. The shop is filled with the best of the best when it comes to design and this time around, items by the fabulous Thomas Paul caught my eye. Amazing sea inspired prints adorned everything from bedding, tea towels, pillows and soap dishes. If there is anything I love in design it is nautical inspiration and this does just that. I have to say that I have been using the tea towels I purchased quite a lot and i love them! They are gorgeous, made with amazing fabrics that get better with age.
Born in NYC, he got his start in the fashion business as an intern at DKNY after he graduated from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in textile design. He then went on to design his own neckwear line called digits in the late 90's. From this he went on to design the thomaspaul pillow collection which launch in 2001. His ultimate goal, to have products covering every aspect of the home all with thomaspaul patterns gracing them.
A fabulous goal indeed!
