Additionally, a fabric panel that runs up the hall in Carrie's apartment is a Marimekko piece. Jeremy also revealed another surprising fact: The writing on the storage shelves surrounding Carrie's flatscreen TV is actually quoted from writer Gertrude Stein, who Jeremy notes is one of Carrie's favorite writers. There's also an ikat>pillow on Carrie's bench seat, and a mirrored table in her living room. Her magazines are stacked on neat gray shelves, and natural-colored, deco-inspired pottery coordinates nicely.
