The wing chair and rug are a study in the potency and power of emblem and motif in decorative arts. Line drawings were derived from Marie Antoinette’s villa Le Petit Trianon. The chair is upholstered with hand dyed fabric and images of architectural elements are composed throughout the faces of the chair. The rug is made up of a series of the ovals and emblems generated from the same drawings from the chair’s imagery but a negative rendition via laser cut felt.
