You know how much we at CandysDirt.com love Jason Lenox’s brand of artful rustic decor. My favorite pieces in the store are Jason’s custom-designed silver and turquoise boxes and his impressive collection of Pendleton blankets.
If you’re a fan of Indian blankets, then you absolutely cannot miss the new coffee table book from Barry Friedman. He’s an expert on trade and camp blankets, and Ralph Lauren’s top source for the woolen treasures. You can meet Friedman and get your own signed copy of the 304-page “Still Chasing Rainbows: Collecting American Indian Trade & Camp Blankets Volume Two” at Antèks on Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Antèks will also host Jed Foutz, owner of Shiprock Santa Fe gallery and Native American art expert, and his tremendous collection of Navajo blankets and artwork. Blankets from Friedman’s own collection will be available for purchase, too. The reception, which will feature sips and light bites, starts at 4 p.m.
If you miss this amazing event in Antèks Design District location, stay tuned for Lenox’s newest venture: Antèks Curated. The store, planned for the Plaza at Preston Center across from Taco Diner, will feature an exceptional collection for the discerning people in your life. Antèks Curated will carry gift items, home accessories, menswear, and a peppering of furniture, most of which will be exclusive to the store. Hand crafted and limited production works from local artists and designers will be preferred, so be sure to check it out!
