Distorting the Masters – An Interior Collaboration

01 May


I am feeling a little bit like a stalker at the moment of the British designers Young and Battaglia.  I recently posted on their faux cowhide rugs which I love, they have now taken this to a new dimension, working together with American conceptual artist and designer Chad Wys, to create their classics revisited collection.


The collection includes the Pastoral cow hide rug (Below), which is taken from Chad’s “American Tapestry” collection, and a series of cushions which take inspiration from Chad’s “Nocturnes” Portfolio collection.

Pastoral 008

I love how the artist and designers have taken something from the past and bought it into the present, or is it perhaps taking the present into the past?  Let me know your thoughts.

Below are Chad’s prints followed by the Cushions with the Y&B touch…. oh and a little bit of influence from Cluedo me thinks…….

      These guys are fantastic, I am obsessed… I think they may start to think that I am some form of Stalker! They come up with some fantastic concepts…… I just need to get a couple of boutique hotels to hire me and I think I could do up the whole place in their pieces!
