Instant Heirloom

If you’ve been coveting Hella Jongerius’s Layers textiles ever since Maharam previewed them in 2006 (see “The Art of Layering,” October 2006), the wait is finally over. In two patterns, decorative stitching reminiscent of hand embroidery ties together sheets of felt, while in others circular outlines appear to mutate and degrade. (The Layers Garden Double pattern is shown here on Moroso’s Misfits sofa, by Ron Arad.) Investing in these intricate designs is like scoring an heirloom—without having to lose your great aunt.
