As Seen In: HobNob Magazine

What a fun and engaging publication HobNob magazine is! Ellen Swandiak, a wizard of food, drink and, of course, STYLE, has designed HobNob to give readers the tools to make all future gatherings that much more interesting. And, as a result of combing New York City for inspiration, she has compiled the best restaurants, bars, and events. Her style section includes home design tips and modern tools for entertaining. She recently came out with a high-end kitchen design piece, highlighting elements to help readers create a state-of-the-art space to love. Included in this piece are four patterns from Legend, a collection of seven textural mosaics reminiscent of ancient textiles designed by Sara Baldwin and Paul Schatz for New Ravenna.

The four patterns included in HobNob are Rimini, Augustine, Omar and Kuba. Of these patterns, HobNob says, “There’s nothing like a mosaic design to give a place a sense of history. These patterns from New Ravenna feature a collection of seven mosaics inspired by ancient textiles. The subtle palette is determined by the different tones in the natural stones that have been tumbled, polished and hand-chopped.”

The inspiration for this collection was Baldwin’s travels through open-air markets and exotic souks around the world. The fabrics she found there contain an artisan’s narrative within their seams and frayed edges, and that’s exactly what we wanted to evoke…but in mosaic form! You’ll notice that a lot of these patterns actually look like fabric and, if made from yarn instead of stone, could be the rugs you see on a floor.

Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Every mosaic in the Legend Collection can be installed indoors or out, on floors or walls. The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.
