Pattern - Orla Kiely's New Book

You may or may not know Orla Kiely's name, but you must have come across her designs at some point, whether it be in the form of a cheerful purse you saw some stranger carrying on the subway or a fun coffee mug that you've seen in a magazine.

Orla Kiely is a London-based designer who has created some of the loveliest patterns out there.  They're bold and they are colorful and all a little bit retro. Her designs and products are sold internationally in her own stores and through other retailers such as Nordstrom, Anthropologie and smaller boutiques.  She also created a line exclusively for Target in 2009.

Orla Kiely will be coming out with a new coffee table book called Pattern, which includes tons of lovely photographs and patterns and Orla's discussion of what inspires her.  (It's a hefty 4 pound book!) 
Pattern is currently available for preorder on Amazon.com and it looks like the release date is October 18, 2010.  For those of you who like to get things done early....this sounds like an excellent Christmas gift.
