Design Bit


Modern innovations boast about high-definition this and super-resolution that. It s time to go old-school, we say! (Well, as old as you can get in the tech industry.) Sure we only have to cycle back a few decades, but the beauty of 8-bit is back in full force. We re happy to see the design world embrace pixels. These charming little cubes can give any piece a new flourish like never before. Check out some of our favorite pixel picks.

Filling Spaces

“Every day I wake up and think this is the dream I have been dreaming.” Itclear that Deepali Kalia, the owner of Filling Spaces, loves her job.


The shop, which opened in Portland eight months ago, is filled with colorful fabrics, which Kalia turns into custom products and exclusive pieces for homeowners. She works exclusively with natural materials and adds embellishments by hand. Filling Spaces also carries furniture upholstered with Kaliatextiles, plus lighting to create a one-stop shop of sorts for interior designers.

Growing up in India, Kalia was always surrounded by elaborately colored textiles. Her inventory at Filling Spaces is eclectic, appealing to a wide range of tastes, but the one common thread is color —and lots of it. Drawing from her upbringing, Kalia packs Filling Spaces with saturated hues and patterns. Chevron, ikat, and tribal-influenced designs are big now, and Kalia also designs vintage-style fabrics with her sister, who lives in India. One of her favorite pieces in her shop now is a bench upholstered in vintage sari fabric.
