A World of Influence

 "A World of Influence is a celebration of some the artists and craftsmen who have inspired me, from old friends to up-and-coming makers I’ve just recently discovered, each a true visionary in their own unique way.” -Madeline Weinrib on her upcoming shop at Barney's New York, opening September 10.

Since the early days of this blog, Madeline Weinrib has been a friend. She shared her holiday picks several years ago (more years than I like to count). Her newest venture, this show of sorts- known in our consumer driven world as a "pop up"- is a collection of impeccably curated objects by Madeline.

Madeline attaches her name to only the most celebrated brands-artists really, and with them- has curated a collection of pieces that will become coveted classics.

Vases made by Federico De Vera, a table design by Robert Bristow, accessories by Munnu The Gem Palace, a chandelier by Apparatus (matching one recently installed in Weinrib’s own home) and a limited-edition print (series of 40) by American artist Billy Sullivan produced by Art Production Fund. 

Also included is a line of exquisite dishes personally designed by Weinrib for Viennese porcelain manufacturer August Weingarten, embossed stationery designed by Weinrib for Connors, as well as umbrellas previously designed for the Neue Gallery.

  “At the heart of it, this pop-up is about more than new products, as exciting as that is for me: It’s an opportunity to share my world and all of the things that make it beautiful.” MW

New products debuting include rugs and hand-embroidered pillows, cashmere throws, patterned trays and accent tables, make-up bags, soaps and oils, upholstered vintage furniture and more. Found objects will include vintage Moroccan serving ware, vintage Moroccan tables, hand-painted vintage Uzbeki tea pots, midcentury brass lamps and bookends, colorful Moroccan candle snuffers, hand woven Turkish towels, handmade marble bowls and a collection of vintage urns.

A World of Influence can be viewed at Barney's Chelsea Passage from September 10 until Thanksgiving

The background fabric/rug in the first and last shot reminds me a bit of tapa cloth, a native handicraft from the South Pacific where it is still made by hand and painted with natural dyes in the Kingdom of Tonga. Mary McDonald has also a "Polynesian" theme to her last fabric collection. Both these talented women have inspired me to drag out the large tapa I have, and put it to good use.

    Many thanks as always for a gorgeous and informative post.
