WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — An internationally award-winning designer from the United Kingdom is coming to Wilmington to share how she blends her passion of nature with creating designs used in textiles and wallpaper.
Susy Paisley was a renowned conservation biologist who found herself fascinated by Charles Darwin’s renderings of extinct, rare and endangered plants.

This was a springboard for Paisley to launch her own company called Newton Paisley. She has since been the recipient of three top awards during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York.
As Paisley was launching her design career, she teamed up with Big Sky Design founder and principal interior designer Jennifer Kraner.
“We were introduced to Susy’s beautiful work and we’r..
Sarah Silverman revealed on Monday that comedian Louis C.K. used to masturbate in front of her with her consent.
“I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this," Silverman told Howard Stern during his SiriusXM radio show, according to Variety.
She continued: "I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him, so please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals.

The Duchess of Sussex ditched her nude heels for a pair of black pointed flats by Rothy’s, £79, and held onto Harry’s arm as they walked over the sand.
Since joining the royal family, Meghan has had to abide by ..

Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s 2010 How Wine Became Modern exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is one of a series of museum shows the architects have developed over the years that challenge the master sense.

What comes to mind when you encounter the term “sensory design”? Chances are it is an image: a rain room, a funky eating utensil, a conspicuously textured chair. But the way things actually feel, smell, even taste, is much harder to capture. This difficulty points to how deeply ingrained the tyranny of vision is. Might the other senses be the keys to unlocking broader empirical truths? Does the ocular-centric bias of art, architecture, and design actually preclude a deeper collective experience?
Such questions are at the heart of the current Cooper Hewitt exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, curated by E..
