Chicago-based visual artist Cody Hudson’s work seems to be felt everywhere, from exhibitions throughout the US, Europe and Japan to collaborations with Nike and Jordan Brand. Hudson has now teamed up with home goods brand Norden for a limited-edition ‘Enlightenment’ blanket made to “stand the test of time.”
Available in “Terracotta” and black, the collaborative blanket is custom jacquarded using a soft wool and cotton blend. Each blanket features Hudson’s abstract forms on both sides. This weekend, Norden will also debut a capsule collection with Hudson at SWISH Projects in San Diego. The unique gallery space, which provides a platform for emerging artists and seeks to make art accessible to the local community, will showcase the artist’s blankets, along with tote bags, candles and custom ceramics.
Both colorways of the ‘Enlightenment’ blanket are available now on Norden’s website for $180 USD each. The rest of the capsule collection will launch February 15 online and at SWISH Projects.

His graphic work and paintings have been exhibited throughout the US, Europe and Japan including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), New Image Art (LA), Rocket Gallery (Tokyo), The Lazy Dog (Paris), & Andrew Rafacz (Chicago). In 2006 Cody was commissioned by the City of Chicago Public Art Program to create a permanent installation at the Sox/35th CTA station as part of the Arts in Transit Program.

Erika, with an interest in home decor, and Pete, with years of experience as an art director and designer, started the brand after recognizing a need in the market for simple, well-designed home accessories that could stand the test of time. Each product they design and produce is informed by the pair’s eclectic design aesthetic and places they have visited around the world. As the brand has grown, it has broadened its reach into the categories of home fragrance, tabletop, ceramics, textiles, and apothecary products.
