Conversations with Mili


As an interior designer, I am on a constant search for unique products and interesting artisans to introduce into my projects. When I discovered KUFRI textiles hand-woven fabrics and pillows by Mili Suleman, I was immediately impressed by its craftsmanship and ethos.

Unloading with Tara Shaw


For several years, beginning in the late 90s, designers lucky enough to be in the New Orleans and Houston areas would mark their calendars for Tara Shaw’s new shipment dates. Shannon Bowers, MILIEU Editor-at-Large, catches up here with Tara just as she is unloading a new shipment.

Furlow’s Folly


In fond memory of Furlow Gatewood (August 28, 1921 - October 29, 2022), we wanted to share this story about Furlow's new collection, Furlow's Folly, with his dear friend John Rosselli, published in the Winter 2020 issue of MILIEU.  Even at the young age of 98, he never stopped designing beautiful pieces for the home.  "Furlow Gatewood: Always loved. Never Forgotten. Thank you." - Leslie Newsom Rascoe, MILIEU Design Director, and producer of "Furlow's Folly"  for MILIEU

Breathing Room: The World of Pierre Bergian


Hovering between dream state and reality is the ethereal world of Belgian artist Pierre Bergian. As a child growing up in Bruges and Ghent, Bergian was a curious sort. Intrigued by the old abandoned buildings he encountered along the waterways of the Low Country, he developed a fascination with interior spaces and architecture that would influence the course of his life.

Flower Child


Ethereal. Preternatural. Otherworldly. These are adjectives that blossom forth when first encountering botanical sculptor Tiffanie Turner’s exquisitely crafted, often larger than life, paper flowers.
