Work of art
An exploration of artistic textiles by Sarah Eaton of Tailormade Space, Abode’s resident interior designer
Our homes are our sanctuary from the chaos of our busy lives but by choosing carefully we can create spaces that restore us and allow us to feel at ease. Bringing art into the home can reconnect us with the beauty in life. Designers of beautiful fabrics and wallcoverings understand how art can refresh our lives and Pablo Picasso summed this ideology up perfectly when he said, “The purpose of art is washing the dust of the daily life off our souls.”
In a wonderful collaboration with Japanese artist Katsutoshi Yuasa, Black Edition have created a range that reimagines the artist’s work in a stunning collection of textiles for the home. These outstanding products are now available in New Zealand from Seneca.
Painstaking traditional printmaking techniques combine with contemporary methods in Yuasa’s work. The delicate way he communicates the exquisiteness of nature has translated exceptionally well into a range of drapery and upholstery fabrics, along with wallcoverings, that cannot be described as anything other than works of art.
My advice to clients is to not shy away from including feature textiles and wallcoverings. There is so much value to be gained from bringing art into your home in this way.
When you invest in quality fabrics and wallcoverings, it's so important to ensure the work is handled by skilled tradespeople. To make sure I get the quality results I need, I entrust my installations to Andrew Gill of Wallpapering by Andrew Gill, knowing that the products and my clients' home will be treated with the respect they deserve.
