Arjumand carries many of my designs, including the wall painting seen here in my home that’s inspired by Antonio Basoli, an eighteenth-century decorative painter — now reproduced on silk. Basoli wanted to evoke the inside of one of Napoleon’s tents.
My designs for wallpapers, fabrics, pillows, and hand-painted plates are all found at Arjumand, a name inspired by an Indian Mogul princess who lived in Agra. She was the wife of the shah who erected the Taj Mahal.
Everywhere you look in Arjumand, a tableau emerges. You can gaze at an antique chair and find it piled with fabrics from Tibet, China, Japan, Arabia, the Balkans, Russia, Italy. These are designs from my new Italy Collection.
