Nightwood's Primitive line
2011's NoHo Design District features Brooklyn-based Nightwood designers Nadia Yaron and Myriah Scruggs' Primitive line. Housed in Zero + Maria Cornejo (the eponymous architectural fashion designer's boutique on Bleecker Street), the Primitive line features subtle and hand-painted pieces constructed with delicate detail and sturdy simplicity.
The design process consists of Scruggs, who functions as the woodworker, gathering a variety of pieces until the perfect mix and match emerges, while Yaron deals with the fabrics, textiles and coverings involved, favoring vintage, organic and sustainable materials.
Both the contemporary shapes and natural pallet of dyes and hues combined with the hand-painted textiles and fabrics breath new life into these salvaged and reconfigured pieces, creating a completely modern appeal.
