MeS Textiles

a few weeks ago bloesem posted about MeS Textiles, a netherlandish company that sells products for the home ranging from patchwork quilt blankets and pillows to tables and beanbags. their stuff is definitely super cool, but let's talk photography: so good. awesome flash fill that flattens the space. awesome warm color palette that feels simultaneously vintage and modern. awesome. they successfully make use of the snapshot aesthetic while creating expertly composed images, unlike the photo campaign by american apparel that somehow misses the mark for me, and makes me want to gag due its overtly suxual nature (sorry). i really love when companies are more concerned with making interesting photography that stands on its own, than with simply lighting a product to perfection and MeS Textiles satisfies my liking.
