Still/Life: It's All About The Journey

After all that hard work, it seemed only fitting that the five BADG designers behind the Orejen Collection would be the first to scheme with the line. Here are their inspired interpretations of Orejen...

“I gravitate towards fabrics with tactile surfaces in color combinations that remind me of objects made out of clay.  They fit perfectly into my origin story of being worldly and living boldly.”






“The Orejen collection celebrates design from its beginnings onward. Pemba Coast's color and vibrance takes me on a worldwide journey from shoreline to city street. I matched this Zanzibar-inspired embroidery with a rose water dispenser found in Agadir and a vintage bowl from one of my favorite Parisian shops. The seashells are collected from beaches all over the world. I love the relationship with the Hingtham wallcovering - how the lines echo and energize each other.”

"Here, I liked putting food along with the wallcovering, fabric and trim because it made me think of a great feast and celebration. The materials remind me of a gathering that would be with family and friends, so I incorporated these objects to personify that. The photo of me and my dad was to show family and when there’s something exciting and hopeful that’s celebrated, such as a newborn or graduation or inauguration."






"this blue is EVERYTHING! It makes me happy and puts a huge grin on my face every time I look at it. It truly reminds of an awaiting oasis or an inspired and irresistible destination that one revisits over and over only to find more to discover. I love doubling down on the saturation of the blue color with more saturated jewel-tones for an unforgettable and unapologetic aesthetic. The multi- textured surface gives Maji incredible versatility for use with lighter weight bridge fabrics and is an excellent partner to other bold patterned fabrics."






“What I love about Pele La is the movement of the pattern, the directionality is so visually interesting that I find it hard not to stare. The colorway Coal has such a moodiness that I can imagine it vividly in a living room or dining room with brass elements, while Dive makes me think of the vibrancy of a kitchen in Spring.”
