  • Dufy studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, in 1900. His work as a painter was associated with the Fauves and their preference for vivid, brilliant colours. In 1911 he began translating his woodcuts into textile designs in association with Paul Poiret, the most fashionable dress-designer of pre–First World War Europe. From 1912–1930 Dufy designed fabrics for Bianchini-Ferrier, a leading French textile company in Lyon. Dufy was also an acclaimed interior designer, and regularly exhibited his work at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs.

ABOUT the MAKER

Rachel Carley Design

Rachel Carley established a ceramic design practice during 1994 in Auckland, New Zealand, after completing her PhD in Architecture. The Rachel Carley Design ceramic collection contains a range of elegant and eclectic forms, which are designed to collaborate with food. The pieces can be mixed and matched in a multitude of ways, introducing variation to the dining experience.

A sustainable imperative informs Rachel's design practice. The ceramics are proudly made in New Zealand, and have become collectables, so are less likely to be part of a disposable ‘throwaway’ culture. They are designed to be used through breakfast, elevenses, lunch, and dinner, becoming intimately connected with the eating rituals and tea & coffee ceremonies of everyday life.

Our new Rachel Carley Design cushion collection celebrates luxury textiles, each produced in collaboration with selected artists. Designed to act as fine artworks for your sofa, these cushions celebrate colour, pattern and texture and each has a particular story to tell.
