What Houzz contributors are saying:

Dumas purchased all the textiles on the couch during a six-month trip to India 10 years ago. He went into antiques shops in New Delhi and Kashmir with the specific goal of finding unique textiles and fabrics, which he then used to create these patchwork blankets and quilts.

I love the chaotic and homely feel. You could come in, throw yourself on the couch, cover yourself with a throw and be very very comfortable. It's a home rather than a house. Designer places with three vases grouped everywhere and unrelated prints don't do it for me.
