Special Nonexistent Furniture

Trompe L'Oeil

By Grace | Feb 26 2013

We love the era of the decorator (think Dorothy Draper, Albert Hadley, and Big Edie at Grey Gardens) and culled inspiration from that time period for our Spring Collection. The central piece showcasing this influence is the Hadley Pillow. Paying homage to Parish Hadley's custom lattice and trellis murals that brought exterior architectural details into interior decor, we too wanted to create something special.

First the design is completely hand-drawn in our studio, a detail common to the era of the decorator and rarely seen today. Second, to gain the architectural effect we desired we used a trompe l'oeil technique. What is trompe l'oeil you ask? Literally meaning "deceive the eye," it is an optical illusion used to give depth and dimension to a flat image.

Available in Mist and Mustard - two colors popular in 50's decor, finish the look.
