Moroccan-style motifs bring home the bazaar

Casbah Cool British-born designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard goes global in his latest wall-covering collection for Cole & Son. Among its eclectic offerings, two sumptuous designs evoke the intricate fretwork and ornamental motifs found in the exotic bazaars and byways of Marrakech. Bahia, meaning “brilliance,” frames a palatial door; surrounding it, the complementary Jali Trellis was inspired by patterned temple stonework. Available at Kravet in DC; to the trade only. cole-and-son.com; kravet.com

The geometric landscape of Marrakech inspired the Areca Palms rug from Eskayel. The bamboo silk-and-wool flat-weave comes in two colorways; Chlorosis pictured. Priced at $56 per square foot. eskayel.com
