The Block Shop owners – Hopie and Lily Stockman – know a thing or two about mixing pattern and texture.

Nestled in a historic building in Downtown Los Angeles, Block Shop’s studio is part office, part showroom and looks like your laid back best friend’s living room. Known for their colorful plays with pattern and texture, the Stockman sisters, and founders of the textile company, are known for their stunning patterns.

The duo works with the traditional Indian hand block printing process, and even though their entire operation is manual, they are still always pushing the envelope when it comes to design. Last spring, we celebrated the Stockmans’ line of table linens at their outpost in Joshua Tree, where the duo frequently hosts block-printing workshops, and this summer, they released a collection of framed prints, transforming some of our favorite textile designs into a chic modernist pieces for the art collector in all of us. These works are woodblock printed on a handmade cotton rag paper and make a strong case for textile as art.  the block shop The Block Shop: Inside the Colorful LA Studio of a Textile Company peek inside the colorful la studio of a textile company 5a0f5a7d604f27084a0d2a07 w1000 h1000

The LA studio is their home base, and the sunny space is split into different zones for different needs: a work zone, a place for shipments to go in and out, and a living room for client meetings and display.

You’ll find tons of inspiration from travels in their work zone, while the chill out space features a trio of sofas layered with their collection of pillows and prints. Our favorite piece in the setup? The George Nelson-inspired yellow and black block-print upholstered daybed, designed in collaboration with LOC Architects. It’s the ideal spot for any sage-burning Cali-cool girl.

The Stockmans’ effortlessly mix pattern and layer in pieces from world travel, and the whole space had us drooling over past and current collections, and wanting to fully redecorate our Brooklyn apartments.
