While looking for light fixtures for our renovation, I got distracted by this beautiful piece of art. It felt familiar, but it wasn’t until I was home that I realized where I’d seen it before.
There it is on the cover of the September issue of House Beautiful 2011.
This sent me on a mission to learn more, which led me to Natural Curiosities by Christopher Wilcox. Hardly a design secret, they’ve been written up and highlighted in a number of places. Maybe I’m just slow to notice.
Produced completely in the U.S., the team behind Natural Curiosities is blending nature and art. If you haven’t perused their work yet, I recommend a trip to their website where you’ll find an immense and varied collection.
Actual sand dollars mounted on linen. How gorgeous in a beach house.
Planisphere – I love this for my son’s room.
“Flight” – originally from a 1904 Japanese book that implies the duality between the delicate and the unrestrained. Hand gold leaf has been applied. I love the light feeling this one evokes.
Now that I’m officially obsessed with this company, seeing their latest work is reason enough to attend the NYIGF later this month.
Will you be there? I haven’t decided yet. But, now I’m very curious about what all I might see!
