John Robshaw is more than a Textile Designer and World Traveler…
…though he does travel the world for inspiration and new – or more accurately, very, very old – techniques for creating the incredible designs that grace his products. (Just ask Sasha & Malia, they snuggle up in Robshaw designed bedding each night.) With an approach that incorporates the ornamentation of design of Eastern sensibilities with a modern Western aesthetic, Robshaw’s textiles manage to be fresh and historically reflective at the same time.
We caught up with John to pose Ten Questions – read more to find out what inspires him, how he keeps track of all that inspiration, and where he is off to next!
Just slip a Givenchy (clutch!) under the tree for me;
Been an awful good Laundress, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight!
Helping others keep their wardrobes and homes clean and toxin-free year in and year out has landed Gwen & Lindsey a spot on Santa’s “Nice” list this Christmas. In fact, he may have reserved his first two gifting stops for The Laundress co-founders – they did create his namesake Stain Bar, after all!
Wondering what the Queens of Clean have on their Christmas list this year? From Assouline books to Givenchy clutches, they’re sure to have an ultra-chic holiday.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and Gwen & Lindsey are getting in the spirit. This week, they share their favorite traditions, recipes, scents and more…
Hosting a dinner party or holiday gathering is hardly a proverbial walk in the park. If you’re lucky enough to be a guest this year rather than a host or hostess, make sure to show the party planner just how thankful you are for their efforts! Who knows – maybe a lovely pair of Laundress products may be just the ticket to have that family member or friend host next year’s festivities as well!
No matter who you’re shopping for or what the budget, it’s no secret that we have all the right gifts for this year’s Secret Santa. Don’t forget to gift a goodie or two for the in-laws, the neighbor, the teacher, the boss, and (of course) the best friend!
