Last night I had the honor of attending an opening reception for my new vignette “Blurred Edges” now on display at Sorelle Galley in New Canaan.
Sorelle is one of the leading galleries in Connecticut, servicing a wide array of clientele, both local to Fairfield and Westchester counties, and abroad. They represent numerous talented artists ranging from new and emerging, to well established talents in their field. They have an amazing art advisory team on hand to help select the perfect piece for any project. And, on top of all of that, their team is talented, driven, and lots of fun to boot!
With all that said, when they approached me about a partnership and installing a vignette inside of the gallery, I jumped at the chance! Art is so often my jumping off point in putting a room together, so it seems like such a natural fit.
I immediately selected this John Duckwork photograph “Spirari 17”as my inspiration for the vignette. I was drawn to the movement and the colors right away. From there I selected my primary fabric, Schumacher’s Bukhara Ikat, and had custom slipper chairs made in a sleek silhouette as to not distract from the beautiful pattern itself. Ikat by nature has blurred edges receding into the ground of the fabric, and I liked how that mimics the blurred edges from the artwork.
I always love a skirted table, and this custom piece made by The Sewing Loft has both a velvet tape trim and a bullion fringe for extra drama. The tape trim struck me when I first saw it because it echos the hexagonal shape from the Bukhara Ikat. I love when pieces wink back at one another and maintain some unifying themes throughout!
From there I added in some of my favorite accessories to finish the space off. A brushstroke ginger jar from Jana Bek, navy and lucite lamps, a small lacquer side table, and a secondary ikat in custom bolster pillows. The entire space is then grounded with a natural fiber jute rug.
I’m thrilled with how this little space within the gallery has come to life, and I’m grateful to Sorelle Gallery for letting me bring my vision in their beautiful space.
The installation will be on display through December 10th, so please stop by to take a look in person. All items are also available for purchase. You can inquire about details while at Sorelle, or send any questions directly to me.
