A friend just sent me images of some fun furniture upholstered with suzanis...and inspired me to seek out the fabric itself. These Central Asian pieces look great framed, made into pillows, draped over a bed or sofa—and they're best in a sleek, fairly minimalist setting. (I especially like framing them; it's like you're taking something tactile and humble, and elevating it.) I prefer the slightly more modern, stylized examples, but the classic styles are great too. Etsy and eBay have tons; click through to the ones I've found, or just search your own. The amateur photography (fingers in the frame, wrinkled surfaces) is part of the charm.
