Inspired by cosmetics magnate Leonard Lauder’s extraordinary gift of his Cubist collection this week to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, we’ve been thinking about the strong correlation between works of art and fabric design. In honor of this monumental gift, we’ve selected some of our favorite Cubist designs that will invigorate any décor.
Cubist Art Movement 1907- 1920’s
Originating in Paris in 1907 and spearheaded by Pablo Picasso and Geoerge Braque, the Cubist movement embraced a fragmented three-dimensional style utilizing multiple viewpoints. Revolutionizing the art world, this style led to the development of abstract art.
Artist, textile designer, and Art Director of Clarence House, Kazumi Yoshida shares Lauder’s appreciation for Cubist art and draws inspiration from the Cubist movement for many of his designs. Framed and hung on the wall or upholstered onto accent chairs, these attention grabbing velvets and printed linens will turn any space into a live-in art gallery.
