Carolina Irving and Daughters

Carolina Irving is a textile designer, best known for her beautiful colourful fabrics, ability to merge patterns and styles from around the world into fabric and ultimately create a beautiful home. 

Born in Venezuela and educated in Paris travel has always been a vital part of her life and work, she’s inspired by museums and culture from around the world. This insight is illustrated within her work and in her home, as depicted in Cabana Issue 4

Inspiration for Carolina is also found in colours she claims “I particularly like fabrics that are easy to live with, look handmade, slightly old and colours that are not jarring, but never beige…I’m not a beige person!”

Carolina has teamed up with her daughters, Olympia and Ariadne. They have combined their shared love for beautiful colours and travel. Finding inspiration in Portugal they have designed the new Carolina Iriving and Daughters home collection, exclusively online at  www.cabanamagazine.com

Everyone knows that the Cabana family likes to enjoy itself and entertaining is an essential part of that philosophy. This collaboration between Paperless and Cabana is the perfect way to get your party started.

The Cabana archive was opened up to Paperless Post to inspire their latest range of stationery.

The mix of patterns and borders, of stencils and illustrations, of flowers and runners, are drawn from the extraordinary pages of Cabana to create an entirely contemporary way of gathering your friends to share the pleasure of living.

The combination of contemporary application and historical design is the perfect summation of the Cabana philosophy. Using Paperless technology brings the history utterly up to date.

Of course, while the motifs might be taken from historical patterns there is something strikingly beautiful when they are applied to a contemporary notebook or the inside of an envelope.

The very names of the designs conjure a magical time: Chatsworth, Bonaparte or Tashkent are distillations of a sensibility that had seemed beyond reach until they appeared in Cabana.

As always, part of the pleasure is the detail, as a paisley from Topkapi in Istanbul is transfigured into a flourish of tendrils or a golden eagle paces across an invitation inspired by a Lombardy palace.

With the festive season upon us, there’s never been a better time to reach back to the past to create the ideal attitude for the dream party.
