Nesting Instinct: Atsuyo et Akiko and Tamar Mogendorff

Two of our favorites team up

atsuyo et akiko!

Scribbled rainbows on the wall are your diminutive Dorothy Draper’s answer to fantasy home decor.

Us? We lean toward Atsuyo et Akiko and Tamar Mogendorff’s collaborative designs.

We’ve swooned over Mogendorff’s straight-out-of-fairyland soft sculptures for years. Same goes for the Japanese duo’s wares. Little did we know that the two talented parties were friends. Together they’ve splashed French phrases across linen and opted for a palette of neon pink and black in place of Mogendorff’s usual soft tones.

Storks, owls, and swans with sequin-speckled beaks emerged; most pieces are made to order and may take a few weeks to arrive.

But some dreams are worth waiting for.

Available at atsuyoetakiko.com, $140-$630.
