in collaboration with interior designer Laurence Carr
Elysian |(adj.) Beautiful, creative, divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect.
We take sustainability seriously at VELVENOIR, and so when Laurence Carr approached us to join her on her latest residential project – we instantly joined her on this. Carr follows an ethos of circularity, sustainability, and healthy living. In selecting and curating a personal art collection for this New York family home, we carefully tailored our concept to suit this environmentally sensitive interior design.
We started with asking a lot of questions. What’s your vision, what do you hold most important ? Then we have started to source artworks keeping in mind the interior design from Laurence and her team yet reflecting the collectors aspirations. We’ve prepared a private viewing room with artists and artworks we believe could be of interest and so our dialogue started.
We have arranged professional installation on site and prepared the document folder for our collectors with all the details regarding the procured art collection.
While staying true to Carr’s vision, we wanted to source a collection that really represented our clients. They love anything mix-media, and like us, are keen supporters of emerging artists. This allowed us to create a young and vibrant collection, highlighting some of the most exciting mix-media artists from around the world.
Artists procured include Nike Schroeder, a renowned LA-based German artist who creates sculptural mixed-media pieces using hanging rayon threads arranged in subtle colour gradations. Most of the artist’s works are made with rayon, a natural and biodegradable fibre. And at the same time as staying on-theme, the colourful artwork fit perfectly with the collectors’ interest in mixed-media works and made a statement on the living room’s double-height white wall. An eye-catching coloured paperwork by emerging Brazilian artist Mirela Cabral was another team favourite, bringing the home office to life.
