Alpaga Bar / Dresser by Ibride

Halfway between art and design, this incredible fringe furniture is a limited edition with just 100 of them. Each example comes with an authenticity certificate signed by the designer BenoƮt Convers. Half animal, half plant, the presence of this furniture is troubling... With fringes on all sides, this mysterious furniture seems to be breathing under its long coat of silky fringes. Such a precious gem, the viscose fringes are available in wonderful harmonies of colour. They decorate the minimalist structure with an elegance and lightness.Alpaga is offering an original tactile experience: it is surprising to stroke it and run your hands through it, slipping them inside to discover what this waterfall of wools, that are silky and warm to the touch, hides. And its centre is the soul of the party: glass legs, champagne flutes, shakers, carafes, spirits and liqueurs are carefully placed in it.

Litany of Loreto Christmas Cards by Royal School of Needlework

Refined Christmas cards reproducing tender details of the Annunciation and Madonna and Child, each with intricate gold foiling which highlights details across the designs and frames to echo the original embroidery. Now in the collection of the Royal School of Needlework, the images reproduce two of a series of twelve embroidered panels. Unattributed, the satin and gold-thread embroideries are known as the ‘Litany of Loreto’ series and reflect the influence of Pre-Raphaelite art; they are thought to date to the early 20th century. They once belonged to the Convent of the Holy Child in Maybury, East Sussex until they were bequeathed to the Royal School of Needlework.

Red Forest Calls oil painting by Gill Bustamente

30x40x1.5 inches red forest calls is a red oil painting made in a variety of rich reds, crimson, scarlet, yellow and purple.

Red Forest Calls is painted in art nouveau slightly abstract style and shows a red deer stag deep in a red forest while above and behind him some female deer call to him from the edge of the trees. There is a tentative message in this - females being the voice of reason when males get riled up maybe? but mostly it was painted because I love deer, I love red and I love deep dark forests. It is painted on deep edge canvas and the edges are also red. Framing not necessary.
