Designer Spotlight: Alabama Chanin


In its September issue, Domino has a very cool interview with Natalie Chanin, the designer behind Alabama Chanin. I first became smitten with Chanin when I discovered her now-defunct clothing brand Project Alabama, so I was excited to read that the designer has expanded her repertoire to include jewelry and home wares.

It's as if someone climbed into a Southern attic full of treasures and crafted them into very hip furniture and home accents. Chanin, who has a degree in Environmental Design from North Carolina State University, is all about eco- and low-impact living in Florence, AL, where her studio and soon-to-open flagship store are located.
