We spoke before about hanging fabric on your walls in lieu of wallpaper, but today we wanted to showcase a new trend hitting the design world- fabric wall art. Framing fabric and hanging it on the wall is a great and inexpensive way to decorate your home.
It isn’t hard to envision some of our fabrics as works of art considering that many designers are inspired by famous artists when designing their collection. Take a look at this beautiful fabric below, Soo Locks Clay, by Robert Allen. Drawing on the artistic inspiration of Canadian landscape artists ‘Group of Seven’ who were prominent in the 1920’s, Soo Locks mimics the same European impressionist style in a printed motif that spans the entire width of the fabric. Consisting of literally hundreds of colors and tones, Soo Locks brings to mind North American lakesides and mountain vistas.
You can see that the colors in Robert Allen’s fabric is reminiscent of this Carmichael painting above.
Inspired by Claude Monet’s Garden in Giverny, Ralph Lauren’s Garden Walk-Posy is truly a work of art. From one inspiring artist to another, Ralph Lauren couldn’t have picked a better muse than Monet, who helped transform French painting in the late 1800s and is still captivating audiences around the globe with his unique style.
