Various verdures

It must be all the gardens I've been visiting lately with my sister; I have green nature on my mind.
 In these last months of blog absence, I've been here and about finding - among other things - that
winding vegetal forms will always have their place in textile design.
Above, a passementrie chandelier at their second Parisian showroom  Passementiers Declerq 
in the rue du Mail...

Foliage  by Sam Baron - at the entrance to the Tai Ping showroom last summer
in the From the Floor Up Collection -

and a closer view at the January Maison & Objet event.

Another rug with a fine 3-D effect, also seen at the Tai Ping site. 

Arden wallpaper by Melissa White at Zoffany

More traditional but still kicking,
 the velvet and tapestry technique design
of  Marly by Colony.

  2. nothing compares to a perfectly placed piece of fabric-the passementerie chandelier Wows me.

    1. So true, Gaye. Glad you liked the chandelier; I had wished for a picture that showed its various textures better!
