GOOD ON PAPER: DEMPSEY AND CARROLL TAPS JOHN DERIAN

by Marisa Marcantonio


Decoupage artist John Derian creates objects with charming old world designs and prints from his East Village shop that could work well on just about anything. He was asked to do a collection with stationer Dempsey and Carroll, and decided to go with the classics. His capsule collection follows those done with interior designer Celerie Kemble, event planner Bronson van Wyck, fashion designer Lela Rose and Schumacher fabrics. The Derian patterns are familiar to those that hoard his glass plates and paperweights, those that admire them from afar, and shoppers that frequent Target. Now they grace fine writing papers, making a statement in mail. I hope a wallpaper and fabric line are next....

A boxed set contains 10 cards and envelopes of the same pattern
