This decidedly feminine, resolutely modern bench design is one of three pieces to comprise our collaborative capsule collection with Rinck. Each needlepoint design is rooted in a shared desire to reinterpret the past with humility and creativity, reflecting the unconditional love for decorative arts that unites Rinck and Fromental.
A romantic tumble of flowers softens the central motif, a sunburst explosion based on an Art Deco design by Süe & Mare. We looked to floral textiles from the 1920s and 1930s to find a language that would echo the voluptuous delicacy of Redouté roses, honouring the Süe & Mare era. The Parma Violet hue of the ground is a tempered version of couturier Jeanne Lanvin’s favourite colour.
