Designs Influenced by Art Work

In the 1950s New York was hit by the trend of Abstract Expressionism. The movement was so influential that the famous Four Seasons restaurant commissioned large canvases for their restaurant, ensuring that their exclusive dining experience reflected the city’s most fashionable aesthetic.

One of the most famous artists of the movement was Jackson Pollock, a painter who gained acclaim through his ‘drip paintings:’ huge canvases covered with a chaotic yet beautifully coordinated mass of oil paint ‘drips’


 Jackson Pollock’s ‘No. 5’

Reworking this classic look with a subtler overall finish perfect for creating a sense of creativity and style in your home interior, Zimmer & Rhode present their Pollock-inspired fabric, ‘Splash’

 Silky embroidered splatters of bold brights against a crisp white cotton make for a dazzling fabric that leaps off any surface. Muted brown and grey tones provide a sense of background through their comparatively lower saturation, creating a stunning overall 3D effect.

Living with art: Sculpture Features for your Home Interior

Rather than simply blurring the line between practicality and style, incorporating a sculpture into your interior can make an artistic statement like no other. Reesman’s creations at Kettle Design act as a striking statement piece perfect for infusing your home with fine art.

                                                  
 

Favouring an industrial aesthetic typical of famous Northern sculptor Anthony Gormley, Reeseman’s bronze-effect ‘Bolaro Patina’ sculpture typifies the beauty of worn yet enduring materials that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are practically useful. As a standalone piece of art the sculpture adds an earthy, authentic splendour to a room, standing proudly at just over four feet tall.
