Specializing in surface pattern design, Chanee Vijay developed her signature style of painting her designs on screens as well as carving them into blocks, and hand printing them with water-based metallic inks on organic French hemp. Chanee subscribes to a slow design philosophy, so each hand-pulled screenprint and blockprint is crafted with regard for health, contemporary life and longevity.
Chanee launched her textiles studio in March 2011 because she wanted sustainably-grown printed fabrics in a spare yet warm style for her home. So she decided to hand print her own designs to fit her casual lifestyle (with large dogs) - making each piece washable. For Chanee, the 'how' is just as important as the design.
Chanee's designs have been seen in national and international publications and blogs- Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset Magazine, Lonny Magazine, Sweet Paul Magazine, DIY Magazine, Style at Home, NY Times, Design*Sponge, Design Milk, Apartment Therapy, and Fete Press, and on the Nate Berkus show. Her textiles have been featured at West Elm in Charlotte and Philadelphia, Schoolhouse Electric Co., Terrain, and the Philadelphia Art Alliance.
In 2015, Chanee moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles with her husband, and their two dogs, Ellie and Harper, and began a whole house remodel. While in Philadelphia, she spent her first year renovating a 1804 Federal row house, now featured in Lonny Magazine. Since the big move West, she's spent her days remodeling their 1980's contemporary home in Manhattan Beach. Chanee is opening her studio in Los Angeles in Fall 2015.
