"Dressing a table for dinner parties or daily use quickly becomes a part of the daily home aesthetic in small apartment living. Dressing a table can be as effective as painting a wall a new color. The handmade table accessories from netty designs feature two-dimensional patterns with deliberate colorful embroidered accents...."
"A cotton blend fabric is silk screened and embroidered to create both a visual and tactile two dimensional patterns.
Currently offered in the collection are complimentary sets of placemats and napkins. The napkins purposefully do not match the placemat and each napkin or placemat may be embroidered on a different location within each set. Each of the sets is named after a female in the family or close girl friend and the design reflects something of each person's character.
Many of my inspirations developed from my love of nature and fascination with history. Nature is an amazing example of organized rhythmic chaos. The best part of a pattern is breaking it with a new color or a new shape thus redirecting the eye to see the unexpected. All of my patterns could be applied on just about every home accessory imaginable."
