At a time when Baroque art, with its serious and realistic themes, was prevalent in Europe, 18th century France witnessed the birth of a strikingly different art movement – Rococo.
Rococo art celebrated the joyful themes of love and nature. Characterised by ostentatious ornamentation, intricate, sinuous motifs, asymmetric patterns, and inclination to lighter, pastel or gold-based hues, the art style evoked feelings of youth, playfulness, and romance – capturing the essence of joie de vivre.
Marked by an opulent and playful embrace of the ornate, the L’Ornement collection is an ode to Rococo. These are hand knotted carpets in hand spun wool and bamboo silk with whimsical design patterns and charmingly sinuous motifs. Evocative of the art and the era.
