LuRu Home Brings Shanghai Style to NYIGF

If you're a fan of Indian block printing, you'll flip for Chinese Nankeen cloth. After moving to Shanghai, Liza and Claire picked up more than just Chinese. The two fell in love with the vibrant indigo hues and imperfect patterns of Nankeen cloth and decided to translate the look to products for the modern home, with LuRu Home.

The ritual of making this traditional cloth dates back thousands of years to ancient China. It involves applying soybean-rice paste to cotton and linen with hand-cut stencils. After the paste dries, the cloth is dipped over and over again into baths of indigo ink. While the fabric dries, oxidation creates brilliant hues of blue. The soybean-rice paste is finally scraped off to reveal a marvelous piece of hand-dyed fabric.

New to NYIGF, I have a feeling LuRu Home is going to be a hit! With pillows, tabletop linens, and aprons, I'm anxious to incorporate this look into my own decor. Keep reading to see more goods from LuRu Home and a peek at additional shots from their imaginatively styled lookbook!

Hot-pink peonies are the perfect foil to inky indigo table linens.

Loving the collection of miniskirt-style aprons!

I like the idea of mixing a medley of printed pillows with other jewels from the orient, like a richly hued Persian rug.

These cascading panels of fabric are inspiring me to create a similar look above a bed or dining room table.
