Block Shop textiles, as art you can live with

If you’ve frequented the corners of Instagram curated by Los Angeles’ most style-conscious creatives, you’ll recognize Hopie and Lily Stockman’s Jaipur- and Atwater Village-based textile brand Block Shop, encompassing everything from flat-weave rugs to scarves. The sisters’ work has struck a cultural chord, thanks to their combination of scaled-up, modern geometric compositions that nod to Sol LeWitt, and the ancient block-printing process they employ, overseen by master printer Mukesh Chhipa. Now they’re infiltrating another category with a new capsule collection with midcentury design shop Amsterdam Modern—a series of vintage daybeds and bucket and cocktail chairs outfitted in pattern-happy hand-loomed khadi cotton and Belgian linen. “We think of our textiles as art that you live with,” says Hopie of the offerings, which serve as a preview of their upholstery line, debuting this spring. blockshoptextiles.com; amsterdammodern.com.
