I first saw this beautiful piece quite some time ago while sharing the fresh and enormously creative work of one of my favourite firms - Sixx Design. My always stylish aunt, an avid art collector from whom I inherited my devotion to the classic simplicity of black and white, had written to ask me the source of this piece. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to give her an answer at the time, however, I was delighted to find it's source recently and so excited to find that the piece was even more spectacular than I'd realized. Created by UK artist Ann Carrington and inspired by a vintage postage stamp, the piece is crafted from several tiny pearlescent buttons sewn onto canvas. I thought the piece was fantastic even just painted, but the buttons add such an interesting texture to the piece.
The Novogratz have featured this piece in a few of their designs and the effect is always impactful. It really is one of those classic pieces that would look great in a variety of different spaces and applications - definitely worth the investment!
