From the Tulip-inspired couture of Galliano to the cult of the Liberty floral, flowers bring a sense of life and joy to design. Liberty prints appeal to classic good taste but also exert an abiding contemporary presence. Taking something so timeless as a flower and making it modern captures this season’s mood for big and beautiful botanicals.
FRONT London brings florals to our floors giving an innovative twist to this natural theme. Hortensia, is new rug by award-winning designer Michaela Schleypen, the creator of many original techniques and materials including her unique filigree sculpture.
Other cutting-edge florals feature Hamman Deluxe, inspired by traditional Moroccan tile patterns and mosque paintings. The magnificent curls are created with a filigree sculpting technique. Floral Garden in Delft blue, which was hand-drawn by Michaela to evoke thoughts of summer past draws slim lines in relief that play with light and shadow. Moroccan Garden follows a decorative border of Moroccan ornamentation around a secret garden hiding vibrant blossoming flowers.
Botanical beauties may line the catwalks but flowers are blossoming in a myriad of new ways in interiors too.
