Product of the Week: 6/24/08

A limited-edition quilt, pieced and machine-stitched by Connecticut-based designer Denyse Schmidt, is the latest piece commissioned by the Philip Johnson Glass House Foundation, joining a collection that over the years has included cherry-wood stools inked by their nonagenarian designer, Jens Risom, and limited-edition prints of the house itself by Julius Shulman. Schmidt found inspiration in the modernist icon’s “subtle layering of details” and the resulting quilt is a spare, 86×93-inch blanket of ecru cotton, stitched with figure-8s and splashed with a lone band of striated color. Each is hand-signed and available for $1,500. www.philipjohnsonglasshouse.org
