Hella Jongerius Ottomans
Hella Jongerius is for sure on my list of top 10 favorite designers. I just appreciate and adore the way that she designs. She is a quirky Dutch designer, who has had a lot of fun with resurfacing elements of old, traditional Dutch furniture and Delftware. Last week we were shooting a client’s apartment, and I had the pleasure of styling a shot with some little floor cushions/ottomans. Although these have been around for a couple of years, I like them as much today as I did the the first time I laid eyes on them. Hella has a very interesting way of working with color. She puts together strange color combinations, such as merlot and sky blue with a peek of green, and presents them as if they were as ordinary as chocolate and turquoise.
