The story behind our new Deco Floral Bedding pattern: Our lead textile designer returned from a trip to the Cooper Hewett Museum last year raving about the Sonia Delaunay exhibition—Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay.
It was Delaunay’s approach to art that really made our designer swoon— combining color and buoyant brush strokes to produce movement and rhythm. Delaunay was a visual virtuoso of sorts; she dabbled in everything from conceptual painting to fashion design. After researching popular prints from the Art Deco era and studying Delaunay’s abstract concepts, the design team honed in on the chic and trendy rose motif from 1930s Paris. Our designers made this retro print new again with jaunty spirals and a brassy palette of bronze and lavender that references Delaunay's Avant Garde sensibility—bold, undulating and graphic.
