THE SCOUT / SPLURGE/SCRIMP

In full flower at home

December 13, 2007|David A. Keeps

Splurge: Suzani, the embroidered textiles traditionally made by brides-to-be in Uzbekistan, have become all the rage in interior design circles. This one-of-a-kind 1930 example, below left, in brown, features vegetable dyes and elaborate hand-stitching. It can cover a twin bed, $625. From Distant, 4516 Hollywood Blvd. (323) 669-0829, distant-la.com.

Scrimp: At $148 for a twin coverlet -- below right, in yellow -- Garnet Hill's Suzani, is a contemporary spin on the traditional design that is more suitable for a dorm room than a dowry chest. It is embroidered in a simple crewel stitch, and the reverse side is in solid cotton. Also available in larger sizes from www.garnethill.com, (800) 870-3513.
