Welcome the fabulous new collection by Katja Ollendorff!

 

 

Katja is a textile designer with a passion for bold color and pattern. She currently lives in San Francisco, but grew up living and traveling extensively overseas. From Helsinki to Paris, Rio to Istanbul—the many sights and places she has explored have contributed to her worldly sensibility and endless need to see more. Gleaning inspiration from these distant places—as well as from her own backyard in the Bay Area—has helped her designs exude a folky, yet modern feel with mass appeal.
 
From her vast portfolio of patterns and designs we selected a few that work really well for bedrooms and gill give your headboard a punch of color and vibrancy. Walk through the Seasons with Katja and NOYO, for spring where it is about rebirth and fresh beginnings, check out Eucalyptus and Palm.

 

 

Moving into Summer, how about a cheery Floral Stripe or folky Scandi?

                  

 

 

Come Fall with dropping temperatures, turn up the warmth and coziness inside with Seaweed and Swirl.

 

 

 

And with the first signs of winter, bring serenity and calm into your bedroom with Argentina and Twig.

 

 

 

 

Working in a variety of mediums from pen & ink, gouache and watercolor to Photoshop and Illustrator gives her designs great range and versatility. She has been featured on several design blogs and her artwork has been licensed with companies both in the United States as well as Europe.

Meet the Sassy Solids collection!

There is no denying it – we love patterns and bold colors! So when customers asked me to create some solid color headboards I happily accepted the challenge. I can do solids, but solids with attitude!

 

 

So the Sassy Solids collection was born. Sassy stands for lively, bold, full of spirit, and cheeky – perfect!

I selected some beautiful colors from the Pantone rainbow and paired them with wonderful and rich textures, such as knit, fur, wood, leather, feathers and roses.

The result are solid color designs with depth and character.

I love them and hope you will too. I am proposing a handful of designs to start, but any combination of texture and color is possible, and I am happy to create your very own version, just let me know what you fancy!
