IN BLOOM

IN BLOOM

In this pattern, I have explored different leaves and flower shapes in an imaginative and abstract way of drawing.
It is an interaction between nature's marvelous shapes and structures and my own inner meditative drawing process that is expressed in the pattern. There is a vibrant and warm palette of colors that pays tribute to nature's rich diversity. I make a virtue of cultivating the slow, hand-drawn and harmonious in an overly hectic world.

"It is often in the slow meditative drawing process that the unexpected happens and an idea, or a dream takes form on the paper”. Danish illustrator and designer Sofie Børsting is based in Copenhagen and graduated from the Danish Design School in 2003. After many years of working in the design industry she finally followed her dream and created an illustrated line of products in 2011. They quickly took off, and are now sold in some of the finest designshops in Scandinavia and aroundthe world. The very detailed artwork is created from a combination of carefully hand drawn botanical elements, collage and gouache. She describes her work as graphic poetry with a hint of fairytale.

TIMELESS DESIGN BY WILLIAM MORRIS

TIDLÖS DESIGN AV WILLIAM MORRIS

Den vackra ockragula färgen i mönstret ger ett varmt och välkomnande intryck. William Morris (1834-96) har formgivit mönstret Bachelor´s Button. Morris var en engelsk designer och författare och känd som frontfigur för Arts and Craft-rörelsen under 1800-talet. Bachelors Button är det engelska namnet för kornblomster, en vilt växande blomma som Morris inspirerades av under sina promenader på engelska landsbygden.

The latest collaboration with the V&A explores a pattern by William Morris (1834–96), the English designer and writer recognised as the leading figure of the Arts and Crafts Movement. His iconic style drew on nature for inspiration, incorporating natural forms into repeating patterns with timeless appeal. Bachelor’s Button is another name for cornflowers, a beautiful wild flower that Morris would have encountered on country walks.
Morris was an influential supporter of the South Kensington Museum, now the V&A, playing a pivotal role in major acquisitions and contributing to the decoration of the building. Today the museum holds the world’s most comprehensive collection of Morris’s works in virtually every medium.

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.

Garden Bouquet is inspired by the beauty found in the nature and garden. Delicate petal shapes, blooming perennials, tiny seedlings and vivid colour all play a part in the garden variety of this collection. These gestural floral pieces were created using water colour, with an overlay of fine pencil details.
