Artemis Design Co's "Flying Carpet Shoes" are a real thing, and if there was ever a time for indulgence, that time would be now. Because each pair of these Classic Kilim Loafers (let's call them "CKLs") are truly one of a kind. And because when worldly textiles meet classic design you're presented with something really special. From Boston via Istabul, Artemis Design Co. procure authentic Kilim carpets from the bazaars of Turkey and repurpose them into limited editions of collectible footwear to which no pair is the same. Take a wander through the full collection of CKLs below and get acquainted with your new original.
The bricked-and-columned behemoth at 3017 N Street, Northwest, is nothing close to turnkey. Known as the Kennedy house for the period when the widowed Jackie lived there, it last belonged to her friend Yolande Fox, Miss America 1951, who bought it in 1975. An 8,196-square-foot mansion trapped in amber, it retains a butler’s pantry, a creaky back stairway up to the maid’s quarters, and, according to the sales brochure, a kitchen “rumored to have the same cabinetry and colors that the first lady installed in 1964.”
