central park wedding invites + patchwork chairs

by Grace Bonney

i love the way wedding invites get the chance to tell a story through stationery. this invitation set was designed by erin jang at the indigo bunting for couple nina + ross. nina and ross met while working for a magazine and decided to have a classic nyc wedding in central park. i love the way that erin incorporated an editorial feel (the groom is an editor at esquire) to the invitations, with little pull-quotes about love (i love the annie hall choice), a pull-out map with favorite spots listed, and adorable illustrations of the park itself. you can see more images of the set here on flickr, or check out erin’s site right here. thanks, erin!

in other colorful news, i’m loving these patchwork chairs from kelly swallow in the UK. i haven’t worn patchwork since college (even then it was a bad idea, my w&m college id was a bad patchwork nightmare) but i’ve always had a soft spot for it in furniture. i typically like patches in furniture to be used sparsely, in sort of an elbow-pad-on-your-tweed-jacket way, but this celebration of patchwork looks like a great cozy place to settle in with a summer book. click here for more info to and contact kelly about purchasing.
