In a world dominated by sleek white lines and minimalist, cold interiors, INA + ILIA is on a mission to add more splashes of colors, bold prints, and intricate handmade styles mixed in with both new and old pieces within your home. There is a warm and inviting feel to the style that allows one to fully relax in a space that honors nature’s cycle of birth, growth, and erosion embracing an objects aging as if it had its very own spirit. It also honors handmade items that come with flaws, which we see as marks of love. At INA + ILIA, we have fully embraced the Japanese art of imperfection, affectionately known as wabi-sabi.

Eugene grew up with a love of graphic design, which was a skill she honed while studying art and art history in France. It was there that she started to long for her homeland and discovered old Vietnamese postcards. She got the idea to turn these vintage postcards featuring strong female Vietnamese women into decorative home items, including pillowcases.
“I just loved seeing these fierce, elegant females from Vietnam on postcards and wanted to honor them in a new, different way. I thought about how to do this and came up with the idea of reproducing them in a new way.”
Large is unique in what she does and keeps the nostalgic stories of these designs alive in her work. Support Eugene today by purchasing one of her pillowcases from INA + ILIA below.
