My black vintage wicker furniture,

with pillows upholstered in assorted Indian quilts,

has been begging for a fabulous ottoman!!!

Mounir Fatmi Acquisition @ Brooklyn Museum!!!

One of my favorite installations

at the Brooklyn Museum is

Mounir Fatmi's "Maximum Senstation,"

a work composed of 50 skateboards, 

each covered with a patchwork

of Islamic prayer rugs!!!

 

Referencing the artist's own experience 

of being raised in a Moroccan Muslim family  

living in contemporary France,

is a vivid example of

"cultural of globalization"!!!

 

The metaphor of the Muslim culture of prayer,

meeting the hip-hop skate board culture

is very appealing to me....

or is it the rugs ....

they really are "divine accessorations"!!!

I adored my visit to Dallas ....
I saw sooooo much fabulous art & incredible design ....
I went into a spin!!!
 
I flipped over everything in this house ...
it's owner is an over-the-moon 
"accessorator supreme"!!!
 
But, I can't get this sublime dinning room 
out of my mind!!! 
These fabulous vintage textiles 
pieced into these sublime "table-mats" 
are brilliant!!!
 
I imagined all the textiles in my closet .... 
incredible African cloth remnants, 
fantastic ikat fabrics,
& the vintage quilt pieces sitting 
on the top shelf!!!
WOW .... I'm off to the seamstress now!!!
 
And the chairs are spectacular too!!!!
