Folk motives for interiors is a trend that lasts since several seasons. Colorful flowers, matryoshkas, subtle cutouts, laces, lurid hues and the myriad crazy combinations – this is an essence of the folk style.
Even more in Poland we shall follow this tendency – the “oscypek” (polish traditional cheese) is not after all our only commodity export. Above all, we have the exclusive design which has been promoted in the country and abroad by the best polish designers.
In 2009 first edition of workshop New Folk Design was held in Poznań, where young and creative creators were promoted. What’s more, during the EXPO 2010 in Shanghai the pavillon that attracted the majority of the audience and journalists was the Polish Pavillon designed by the trio of architects: Wojciech Kakowski, Marcin Mostafa and Natalia Paszkowska. The whole coverage of the building, i. e. the walls and roof connected in one, was based on the cutout motif – the modern technology let architects cut off the details of fine and, at the same time, tough material of the external layer of the pavillon.
Inspired by the irresistible power of the folk trend, we have created our new collection, Modern Folk, where the traditional motives interwine with geometric and modern forms.
Stickers and wallpapers with details taken directly from the folk artist’s wardrobe fit perfectly in the modern interiors, as well as in the cosy rooms full of colors. Modern folk is the folk which is tasteful but not necessarily modearte – every considered exaggeration has its own charm. Therefore, we invite you to our Inspirations’ gallery and to view our newest collection. And finally, it’s worth to highlight that the inspiration comes also from the works by Kasia Kmita, the fact which the owners of trained eyes will surely see.
