If, like me, you've been lusting after a Madeline Weinrib rug for years, but haven't popped enough pennies in your piggy bank to provide for the purchase, I've got a treat to ease the heartache. The painter and textile designer is moving from the rug factory to the paper mill with a new line of luxury stationery for Dempsey & Carroll. Featuring hand-bordered cards and envelopes with block-printed liners, the fancy boxed stationery has the same exotic sophistication we've come to love from the lady. My favorite is the Isabelle in Pink Set ($60), which features the Pantone-crowned color of 2011, honeysuckle. But there are also more notes in dapper navy blue. Better yet, a portion of proceeds benefits Project Mala, a nonprofit working to eliminate child labor in the Indian carpet industry. The papers may not cover your nine-by-12 living room floor, but for only $60, they sure are high on style.
