Grab your pith helmet, load your camera and lace up your boots, we’re going on safari! The DwellStudio designers channeled American adventurers Martin and Osa Johnson's trailblazing spirit to source inspiration for our new spring pillows!
During the early 1900's Martin and Osa Johnson set out to explore the uncharted African landscape. Documenting majestic wildlife, sweeping Serengeti scenery and vibrant tribal culture, Martin and Osa introduced the world to the splendor of Africa with their early nature films. Their documentaries ignited a fascination and hunger for adventure in the American consciousness. Chic tastemakers of the era romanticized the idea of a grand safari vacation. Suddenly taking expeditions through the African bush was en vogue! It's this notion of the 1920s Golden Age of Adventure that inspired our current crop of pillow patterns. Rich colorations, zebra motifs and art deco prints echo that trailblazing safari spirit!
