Frederique Morrel : Trends in Tapestry

Frederique Morrel gives tapestry a whole new life with their pop-artifacts. Animal heads, antlers and hoofs have circled the globe and become objects of universal interior design trends, but this really caught me off guard.  Why don’t you try guessing how these beautifully upholstered animals are produced. It is no simple task…

From collecting the vintage tapestries to creating the fiberglass taxidermy molds which are later injected with expanding foam, to covering the form, each step represents a celebration of craftsmanship that the artists seize to preserve with their work. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind object and prices range from a few hundred Euro to 10,000 Euro.
