Bring zen to your interior with a beautiful Japanese floral print. A common motif of Japanese art, flowers play an important part in Shinto, a native religion of Japan which looks to the cycles of earth and the changing of seasons. The lovely but short-lived blossoming cherry tree, evokes a sense of time passing and transformation. Our V&A collection offers some of the finest Japanese prints. Opt for a large size canvas or oversized print and keep the rest of your interior minimal.
For a modern take on the trend, pick a floral print by one of our contemporary artists and team with a simple black or white frame. Try Claire Brooker for floral art that is both elegant and striking. Or if you want something contemporary with a vintage twist opt for Marion McConaghie’s floral collages. McConaghie combines pages of encyclopedias and maps, overlaid with painterly techniques to create pretty artworks. For a bold floral print, choose the very cool graphic designs of Simon C Page.
Once the preserve of your grandmother’s curtains, floral chintz is making a comeback. For a trendy wall art display, group vintage floral prints together. The more chintz the better.
