Anthropologie and Paule Marrot Collaboration
Anthropologie

You can always count on Anthropologie to deliver home décor that's equally whimsical and chic and the retailer's latest collaboration is no exception. This time, the brand worked with the editors of Paule Marrot Paris to bring the award-winning textile designer's prints of the past into 2019.

Originally a painter, Marrot made a name for herself through her iconic prints and patterns from the mid-1920s to the early seventies. Her work is recognizable across the world and she's even known for inspiring the style of fashion icon Jacqueline Kennedy. In addition to influencing the fashion world, Marrot's cheerful use of color and pattern is also thought to have helped lift the spirits of the postwar world in general.

Just in time for spring, the collaboration featuring her signature prints delivers colorful florals and scenes inspired by nature. From a bold tufted butterfly rug to a squirrel-adorned lampshade, the line is utterly playful.

There's nothing minimal about this collection that brings a French icon's style back to life in an entirely modern way. The eye-catching patterns, amusing prints, and bright colors also build upon the growing resurgence of more maximal design styles, compared to the minimalistic trends that seem to have ruled the last few years.
