Salon’s striking geometric design is taken from a detail in a beautiful album of designs by French artist, Adrien Jacques Garcelon. French pattern books of this period featured floral and geometric forms created using a stencil-based technique called pochoir and their purpose was to inspire textile and wallpaper designers.
Salon takes Garcelon’s chevron pattern and updates it in a lustrous palette of pewter and rose. Handcrafted in pure wool, its cut and loop panels accentuate the bold Art Deco pattern which looks as fresh and modern as ever.
Original inspiration: Book plate from Inspirations: 80 motifs en Couleur, Adrien Jacques Garcelon, France, 1928
