Interior Designer Jeannie Fraise Scours The World

For Fraise, when looking for unique finds, the sky’s the limit

Interior designer Jeannie Fraise, founder of Lotus Bleu Interior Design Studio and the just-launched Lotus Bleu Market by Jeannie Fraise, travels to such far-flung locations as Turkey, Ethiopia, Oaxaca, and Morocco to source hard-to-find wares for her new 350-square-foot bazaar, situated within her apartment-like Potrero Hill design studio.

Her rotating collection of one-of-a-kind goods from fair-trade sources—curated by country—runs the gamut from an ottoman made from an antique cotton-and-silk suzani to a custom striped pom-pom pillow created from a hand-spun Ethiopian cotton textile with natural dyes to a vintage tulu rug woven by central Anatolian nomads. Products can be viewed in the showroom Monday through Friday, by appointment only.
