DefiningElegance.com has been offering luxurious decorative pillows and bedding from Kevin O’Brien Studio for many years.  The very popular velvet  pillows, duvets, shams, and throws are handcrafted using a devoré technique that creates a “burnout” effect and are dyed using customized colors.  Other home accessories are created using embellished linens,  printing, and shibori techniques.

The following is an interview with Kevin O’Brien, published by the PatternObserver.com, a blog for textile designers.  It takes us behind the scenes to see how this gifted artist finds the inspiration for his designs, details about the creative process and his talented staff, and how he got his start in the home textile industry.

Alhambra-I-Blog

Evocative of the iconic royal residence of Albambra in Granada, Dransfield & Ross extracted the keynotes in a realization of this quintessential Moorish aesthetic bedding. The Albambra was created in the fourteenth century during what was perhaps the zenith of Moorish design and culture. The Moorish style of architecture incorporated a wide swath of influences from the broad territory that the Andalusian Moors at that time controlled in Europe as well as North Africa. There is a timelessness and sophistication about Moorish design that we find particularly relevant to our current global sense of the world.

Dransfield & Ross paired this verde gris cotton velvet with ice color linen appliqued in a classic fret pattern for the duvet as well as shams and decorative pillows. Extracting and reducing the fret, they quilted this pattern on the velvet coverlet and on the shams for a subtle play of texture and geometry.

The decorative pillows in this collection include Dransfield & Ross’s silver glazed linen rag knit pillow, against appliqued fret in linen and cotton, velvet ribbon pillows in a modernist geometric application and their jeweled and embroidered pillow in a more organic design to juxtapose against mix of rectilinear textures. The bed skirt is tailored with a velvet ribbon border applique.
