On MYB’s recent tour of the US, we stopped off in Chicago - our first visit to this fantastic city, we were instantly hooked! While there, we held a small gathering for designers and architects, hosted by Chicago based interior design company Soucie Horner. Scottish Textiles had invited Shea Soucie to Scotland the previous year and having enjoyed the experience so much, Shea and Martin became great advocates for Scottish textiles, spreading the word in Chicago on our behalf! Kindly they offered to host the evening in Martins home - a stunning backdrop to a great night (below).
On our return to Scotland, Martin & Shea kindly shared their thoughts on the evenings event:
On a recent wintry eve, we had the honor of hosting an intimate dinner party to introduce MYB Textiles to some of Chicago’s most elite interior design community members. Our guests gathered around a candle lit dining table as snowflakes fell, Scottish whisky was poured, and the heritage of MYB Textiles was shared. The legacy, the lore, and the loveliness of your lace was explained, appreciated, and awed over. We were delighted to see our guests as captivated by your exquisite laces as we are – which underscored for all of us that Scotland deserves every bit of recognition it’s beginning to receive for its luxury fabrics. Our message to our guests? “Luxury Scottish textiles are among the best kept secrets of the design world – but only for the moment.” It was our pleasure and privilege to share that secret – especially since we’re quite certain it won’t remain a secret for long!
