I feel like I've been seeing Bokja everywhere, but to be fair, it popped back into my view at JuBella. Beirut based design partners Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri started Bokja in 2000. They employ 10 full time artisans in addition to collaborating with local craftsmen. Thus their textiles are regionally specific and, lets face it, a white room's raison d'être. It's so haute-bohemian that the buying celebrity A-list is outstepping Bokja's bold pattern in the press. Still, for those of us who love rich ornamentation, these textiles are the stuff of dreams.
