TIMELESS DESIGN BY WILLIAM MORRIS

Every colour has a unique impact and this ocher yellow brings joy to spaces and makes them look bright and welcoming. Bachelor´s Button is a pattern by William Morris (1834-96), the English designer and writer recognised as the leading figure of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Bachelor´s Button is another name for cornflower, a beutiful wild flower that Morris would have encountered on his country walks. The iconic style of William Morris was inspired from nature and formed into repeated patterns with timeless appeal. 

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance. Founded in 1852 in London during the reign of Queen Victoria to make works of art available to all, today it provides a place of inspiration, discovery and learning through its mission to enrich lives through design. The museum’s 145 galleries display the finest examples of the decorative arts from textiles and ceramics to sculpture and photography. The collaboration draws inspiration from the V&A’s incredible archive, resulting in a range of home interior accessories that celebrate the beauty and variety of pattern which the museum is renowned for.

FIRST HINT OF SPRING TIME

"Little Dot" in classical blue and white gives us a first hint of springtime. Simple, functional and subtle are words describing the Scandinavian style. Ulrica Hydman Vallien´s design "Little Dot" has it all. The spots with traces from her paintbrush gives a feeling of movement and the design is filled with humor and joy. Enjoy the Nordic colours and let them imbue the home and everyday life in a functional and beautiful way. A tray from Åry Home is always an appreciated gift. The trays come in three different sizes and the collection also includes coasters and a trivet.

Ulrica Hydman Vallien , 1938 – 2018, was one of Sweden’s most famous glass artists with her unmistakable figures painted directly on the glass. She was educated at the National College of Art, Craft and Design in Stockholm and has during her long career been awarded a number of scholarships in the US and Mexico. Ulrica’s most important expression is her powerful imagery and she is represented in about 20 art museums around the world.

RED EARTH

Pappenpop created this design inspired by traditional Japanese paper patterns. The design is visually graphic and organic, built up with intricate but simple forms. Paula engendered the drawing by hand, painting with ink pen and then created the repeat in the traditional way. The colour, “Red Earth”, creates a sense of warmth and used in living spaces will make a room feel opulent and welcoming.

Paula Pappenheim is the founder and designer of Pappenpop, a design studio in Madrid, Spain. She comes from an artistic background and has studied fine arts and graphic design. Paula has a Master in surface pattern design and her inspiration comes from architecture, different cultures as well as the spirit of different, interesting places. The nature is also a great source of inspiration where mathematics is perfectly hidden under nature´s quiet chaos and harmony, the way they come together is where art and nature join and come to life. The design by Pappenpop is internationally represented and selected to elevate a wide range of interior design products such as home textiles, porcelains and wall papers.
