I discovered Anna Ekre in the Young Designers section of Formex this month and was completely taken with her striking patterns.
Formex is a gift and interiors fair, so Anna was there with her illustrations and graphic designs adorning wallpaper, posters, pillows, and tray tables.
This collection is called "Love Tales" and includes "The Lovers" above, and "The Deer & the Wolf" below.
In "The Lovers," a harlequin pattern depicts the tumultuous forces blowing lovers about in a storm of emotion. "The Deer & the Wolf" takes us to a fairytale world where danger lurks and horses flee, but the brave stand solid and secure.
When I got home I checked out Anna's website. Wow. If you like her patterns on pillow cushions, you should see them in her fashion designs. I'll have to post some here on the blog once I get through my Formex finds and Design Week, which will be in full swing next week. Lots to look forward to!
