Events: ALT for Living + Luke Irwin in Soho

BY Julie Carlson

Analisse Taft, the owner of Soho design showroom ALT for Living, has just added our favorite London rug merchant, Luke Irwin, to her roster of textile and rug designers. She's also launching her first line of textiles, called Living Vintage, featuring fabrics made with vintage silk screens she discovered in a Brooklyn printing factory ("finding these silk screens felt like unearthing lost treasure," she says).

To celebrate, Alt for Living is hosting a reception on Tuesday evening; light fare and seasonal cocktails will be on offer—plus a first look at Taft's Living Vintage line of fabrics and Irwin's line of dhurrie rugs (Irwin and his rugs are in town for ICFF).
