I am always on the hunt for new and interesting art, and especially art through different mediums. Of course I love abstract paintings on canvas, but I also love mixed media, charcoal, and textiles, especially because they add an element of interest to a space. So when I saw the textile art of Paule Marrot available on Natural Curiosities, I was immediately drawn in by her bold use of color and the chinoiserie feel to many of her pieces. Paule Marrot was a French artist who created most of her textile works from the 1920s-1950s. Marrot’s bold use of flowers, color and patterns reflect a compositionally modernist style classically associated with the Art Deco movement. You might be familiar with the Feathers piece. I have seen it featured in a few highly publicized rooms (and I absolutely LOVE it!):
Here are a few more favorites of mine:
They are all just so fun. I could see them working equally well in a modern living room or a kids play room. In fact, I've been debating on whether or not I want to purchase Feathers for our house. I feel like it is a bit overdone at this point, but it's so beautiful and would be perfect for over the couch. Each print is ~$1000 framed or ~$400 unframed. I believe Natural Curiosities is to the trade only, so if you want to purchase a piece, email me and I can get it ordered for you!
