Recently on a walk I noticed this pretty little flower on a tree and I thought it was such a beautiful and feminine shape… it got me to thinking about other things with this same shape.
The first thing I thought of was a chinese lantern.
Lanterns of course made me think of lamps.
I also began to wonder what other things might take their cue from this shape.
Not only Jewelry but gowns from times past (oh, I wish we still dressed like this!)
And of course one can’t forget the vase.
When choosing furniture pieces for clients, shape is the most important aspect – it defines the style, and gives rise to all sorts of opportunities. Shapes inspire design as much as color or texture, and nature is the mother of that inspiration.
