A house full of pouffes is a home full of love. Suzani-inspired Pompom pouffes by Graham & Green happen to be some of the most beautiful pouffes I’ve seen on the net. I’m so in love with their pom-pom nature. Their fluffiness is accentuated by this soft pom-pom trim that seems to be taking a lead role in current home and personal accessorizing.
I’m not sure East Asian ‘suzani’ is this bright in color; I see more reds and blacks in the original designs, but a variation on the theme is also beautiful.
Suzani fabrics and home accessories come from a part of the world that is dear to me. In a previous post I shared my love for Samarqand, where I met ‘suzani’ face-to-face on local grounds.
I think anyone who is in love with close-to-nature cultures should go to Samarqand. Simple people who still wear their traditional dress. The young ones don’t over do it with fashion, they’re pretty nomadic, and the way they integrate beautiful cultural home and personal accessories into their daily lives is heart-grabbing. You see beauty, art, and a simple way of life every where. I love you, Samarqand.
