For those looking for quality, approachable, and affordable soft furnishings for the home, Annie Selke should be a brand on your radar. For years now, the company has been the go-to resource for stylistically versatile indoor/outdoor rugs, bedding and pillows. This 2019, they paired up with celebrated designer Mark D. Sikes to create a capsule collection that brings his classic Americana style to the brand.
His designs, though, have both an East Coast and West Coast feel: “The stripes, checks, and florals in the collection feel very east coast and the embroideries, batiks, and Ikats are very west coast,” the designer shared. “The tension between the preppy and bohemian is what makes the collection so beautiful.” Based on his travels and personal finds over the span of his career, the capsule collection is a very personal expression of Mark’s vision. “The patterns are timeless and so are the colors- checks and stripes aren’t going anywhere and neither is blue and white,” he said.
At this July’s show at AmericasMart – July 9th to 15th to be exact – Mark D. Sikes will be showcasing his new collection for Annie Silke to attendees. He will also be part of a panel discussion with celebrity designer Bunny Williams on “A New Kind of Traditional” where he’ll share his point of view on traditional design in 2019.
