I first saw the work of Thompson Street Studio early last year. Something about the playful construction and sophiscated colors of these fabric collage quilts really caught my attention.
Kiva Motnyk started Thompson Street Studio in 2014, drawing on her history working as a textile designer for home and apparel and inspired by her family home - a SoHo loft that has been a communal artist space since 1976.
Motnyk's curtated collections range from interior goods, quilts, table runners, and rugs to wearable textiles, like the kimono above.
Working with artisans from around the world, Thompson Street Studio celebrates the perfectly imperfect nature of handmade goods. Ceramics from Jasiu Krajewski in Tennessee, handmade quilts from Jessica Ogen, and kimonos from Susan Cianciolo round out the offerings.
Today our friends from Humanscale are in our studio for a photoshoot. It's always so fun to have a new creative energy in this space!
