Spotlight on: M.C. Escher

GH banner blog 1

Greenfield & Hunter are excited to present M.C. Escher and his array of interesting and intriguing creations. 

Mauritis Corenlis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world's most famous graphic artists, celebrated by millions of people all over the world. During his lifetime, Escher made 448 lithographs, woodcuts and wood engravings and over 2000 drawings and sketches. Like some of his famous predecessors - Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dürer and Holbein - M.C. Escher was left handed. Many of his famous prints are supposedly believed to be 'impossible constructions', such as Ascending and Descending, Relativity, his Transformation Prints such as Metamorphosis I, Metamorphosis II and Metamorphosis III, Sky & Water I or Reptiles

Escher used geometry to create many of his images and incorporated mathematical forms into others. What many may not be aware of is some of his prints provide visual metaphors or abstract concepts particularly that of infinity; which he became interested in later in his career. 

Besides his famed graphic designs, Escher illustrated books, designed tapestries, postage stamps and murals. His ability far surpassed what many today know of him. A clear feature of Escher's is his ability to play with architecture, perspective and impossible spaces. His art continues to amaze and wonder millions of people. The way in which Escher observed the world, and expressed his own fantasies will always intrigue us.

The National Gallery of Victoria will be presenting works by Escher within an immersive space this Summer! The exhibition titled 'Between Two Worlds | Escher X nendo' will be comprised of over 160  prints and drawings by the artist, spanning from a 1916 portrait of his father to his final work in 1969, the complex woodcut print Snakes. Visitors will gain insight into the way the artist planned and developed his works - an interesting experience no doubt.

National Gallery of Victoria, curator Catherine Leahy, "This pairing with Nendo is a way of bringing Escher's work to life, and showing that the ideas that he was thinking about still have real relevance today for design". 

Escher's collection of wallpapers are available for viewing and purchase at our G&H showroom. The interesting collection is a favourite amongst the team and we'd love to see the ways in which our clients can bring these Escher wallpapers into the home environment.

New Collection from Morris & Co

GH banner blog 1

"Having nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful," William Morris.

William Morris (1834-1896) is regarded as one of the greatest deigners, and an outstanding figure of the Arts and Crafts Movement. He was also a poet, artist, philsopher, typographer and political theorist. Following the establishment of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co, Morris was motivated by the desire to provide affordable 'art for all' and driven by his boundless enthusiasm. Following their liquidation in 1940, the design archives and remaining wallpaper stock were purchased by another household name in home furnishings, Arthur Sanderson & Sons. Since then, they have remained a part of the Sanderson family ever since.

Inspired by the huge archives of the Morris name, the Pure Morris collection offers lighter and brighter renditions of the iconic classics, better suited for the modern home. Drawing on the craftsmanship of William Morris, this exquisite fabric and enchanting wallpaper collection is one of pure sophistication. 

Our showroom now stocks the entire Pure Morris collection. With modern interpretations of Morris' classic prints, there is something for the contemporary fashion of today. 

Morris & Co's new "Pure Morris collection will come as a revelation to anyone who had longed to use the designer's work in a contemporary setting," says Amy Bradford, Elle Decoration.

The entire Pure Morris collection is available for viewing at our Frewville Showroom. Come in and discover your favourite Morris prints and wallpapers redesigned for the modern home. Contact our team if you require further information

New collection from Phillip Jeffries

GH banner blog 1It was only last week that we launched The Textile Company at our Greenfield & Hunter, and this week we're excited to launch the new Phillip Jeffries Summer 2018 Aboretum.

This collection finds inspiration from tiny petals and full blooms while the rich atmosphere of floral hues, patterns, and textures becomes an oasis. Explore the range of diverse wall-coverings, each with their own unique patterns and textures, printed on a variety of natural grounds, including Manila Hemp, Washi, Linen, Silk, and Vinyl Iberian Linen. In the manufacture of these coverings, digital design mixes old-world craftsmanship with new-world technology.

Monet Monet takes inspiration from the waterlilies that are artfully dotted along a pond, capturing a romantic collage of lily leaves for a one-of-a-kind design. Each lily is crafted during a multistep artisanal process. The paper is coloured and stencil rubbed for a textured effect mimicking real lily leaves. The paper is then hand torn into each lily, brushed down onto a paper backing - all in all producing a beautiful floral motif.

"When the interior and exterior of an open architecture merge, textiles contribute to creating an atmosphere and a sense of well-being," Crèation Baumann.

New Élitis Collections

G&H banner blog 1.jpg

Élitis explore the patterns and textiles in the craftsmanship of their latest collections, Domino and Costa Verde.

Costa Verde combines ennobled raw materials and weaves abaca, wood, paper and silk thread with strips of mother-of-pearl and metallic thread. It embodies and unleashes hilly landscapes covered in virgin forest; forgotten fishing villages which rub shoulders with the vestiges of colonial splendour. 

One of the designs, Nacre Vichy (RM 675), is composed of 90% mother-of-pearl and 10% paper. With a wide-width, this Élitis wallpaper creates a presence within a room that is unlike any other. The mother-of-pearl offers a reflective surface, creating light in an otherwise possibly darker room (see above). Within this design there are seven designs, each with a unique colour composition and ideal for any interior setting.

Within the Costa Verde collection, the materials used are all very obvious. The nature of their composition means that the wallpapers are interesting upon application. One of the most unique designs is Estancia (RM 679) which is composed of 47% multicoloured silk yarn, 38% paper and 15% nylon on a non-woven backing. The strands of silk warn add a texture to the wall unlike any that we've seen before. It's an interesting option and in situ beautiful and eye-catching (see below).

If you're looking for something a little more natural in appearance, or lighter, the Domino collection revisits geometric and figurative motifs. This range is 100% woven, and shows an array of sketched assemblages on paper, printed to the sheet. 

A wild step away from the previously discussed wallpapers from Costa Verde, Domino is a more traditional wallpaper, European in style and design. Some are more colourful, whilst otherwise are subtle in their combination of geometric designs and hues (see below). 

Domino Collection Élitis These collections, and so many more are now available to borrow at G&H. Please contact our showroom if you require any more information or are interested in any specific designs.

The New Métaphores Collection

New catalogue 16

Créations Métaphores is a supplier of high-end soft furnishings, with three distinct and unique labels; Métaphores, Verel de Belval and Le Crin. Each brand idenitifies with a specific trend; Métaphores, represents contemporary inspiration, Verel de Belval the prestigious reputation of Lyon silk trades, and Le Crin, exceptional materials and expertise. Combining these three, offers a sophisticated range of complementary and innovative textiles and fabrics. It offers professionals, decorators, upholsterers or architects a wide array of possible style combinations; colour co-ordination, bold materials and patterns and a mix of classic and contemporary. 

This week, Greenfield & Hunter focus on the new Métaphores collection which features a mix of modern emotions and trends; placing sensuality, striking colours and noble materials to create heartfelt creations. As each collection is launched, Métaphores seeks to bring sensations, fabrics and colours into play, and boldy renew weaving techniques and associations of textures.

In their new collection, Métaphores explore the effects of velvet, and the way in which it can be worked-on with a complex technique of embroidery (see above). Aloe is described as "a design in relief which wonderfully captures light". It's beautiful for chairs, and it sublimates their shapes, but also ideal for creating headboards and evoking those contemporary vibes. 

This interesting velvet isn't the only beautiful and intriguing new addition to the Métaphores range. The Luxor (see below), plays between mat and glossy, and is a double linen and silk weft with two cotton warps. The weaving technique gives an exceptional fluffiness and depth that magnifies the geometrical design. Partnered with bold colours and other patterns, this Luxor is the perfect combination of Orient and the West, with its refined contrasts.

And just because patterns are always an exciting alternative, Métaphores explores the possibilities of Amazonie velvet and geometric designs in the print Khartoum. This new printing technique is reminiscent of marqueterie, "stimulating the imagination". Métaphores allows us to be inspired by the motives (pictured below), evoking the columns and rosettes of "the most beautiful Sudanese temples".
