Alice Warder Seely
Hondo, New Mexico
Alice Seely's first textile customer was Roger Thomas, the chief designer for the new Encore addition to the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The addition opens in December, with 34 of Alice’s wall hangings, framed and mounted, in guest areas and the main casino area.
Alice started her textile business in 2007. Her line features hand embroidered wall hangings and pillows, made by artisans in Srinigar, Kashmir. The designs are uniquely American, not derivative of European or Asian designs and portend the strong infusion of color into the world of contemporary furniture. (A similar shift occurred with the introduction of Bauhaus tapestries in the 1920's and 30's. )
Alice has shown at the Las Vegas Furniture Market, where she was asked to design rugs, tapestries, and pillows for a leading contemporary furniture manufacturer. Alice will have a continuing presence at the Las Vegas Furniture Market.
