Remember last month’s post about that stunning embroidery carpet by Esther? Did you, like me, admired this work of art by Esther? Then you will probably will like this post about Frédérique Morrel’s one of a kind products made from vintage tapestries as well. Frédérique, who is based in Paris, was troubled by the fact that her grandmother’s needlework ended up in the trash when she passed away. Since then, she has found an interesting concept to recycle these and other un-justly, un-recognized, anonymous and devalued artifacts.
Frédérique transforms vintage needlework tapestries into the most gorgeous furniture and (home) accessory designs. Each product is one-of-a-kind, using a unique combination of tapestries or tapestry pieces, assembled in order to create an interaction between themes. Frédérique: “Most industrially-produced design products today have lost all connections to the human values that come from the experience, ingenuity and craftsmanship of the human hand. Our products are designed to re-connect with these values with both respect and humour”. Check out her website to see all her gorgeous creations. It is worth the visit!
