Editorial Reviews

T Magazine:
"Whether you tack the cards on inspiration boards a booklet included in the box list the designers' creative processes or use them as actual postcards, they are a steal at $19.95 for the set."

Real Simple:
"A mini-museum of contemporary pattern design (curated by the Textile Arts Center of New York City), this set comes with a kaleidoscopic array of 100 colorful postcards, each awaiting a stamp of approval."

Better Living Through Design:
"you'd best snap up this box set now....I'd be tempted just to keep it as a pattern resource for inspiration purposes, but then it'd be a shame not to share such interesting postcards with friends and family."

"A visual feast at your fingertips, [Pattern Box] functions as an essential desk accessory: a deck to shuffle when in need of a little workday inspiration."

Design Crush:
"This collection of patterned postcards Pattern Box just makes me happy. You know what I mean, how something seemingly small can do that?"

"I still believe in snail mail. I love the act of writing a letter, addressing an envelope, putting a stamp in the upper right-hand corner, and mailing it. It is so special and friendly and just plain makes me happy. These days it feels like all I do is mail my rent check. That is until I spotted the Pattern Box."

Sight Unseen:
"We were already pretty sold on the idea of Pattern Box....But then we found the little booklet tucked inside, which contains wonderful, Sight Unseen-like Q&As that delve into the inspiration and process behind each designer and we knew we had to share. Check out some of our favorites below, then head over to Princeton Architectural Press to snag yourself a copy."
