Highlighting the contrast between stability and movement, Anya Larkin hand-made wallcovering patterns animate dots, lines, curves, friends and rectangles. The late designer had an eclectic sensibility as likely to draw inspiration from Bauhaus as from Japanese kimonos; her designs featured acanthus, filigree, and the variegation of smoke and pearl. Trained as a fine artist, Larkin also applied her artistry to “fine silk canvases” created for many of the world’s best-known couturiers, and worn by the world’s most notable women.
Anya, who died in 2013, lives in her art and in her studio, where the artisans whose talent she cultivated and nurtured channel her vision and continue to create in her style. Her protégés are artists who have worked with Anya for more than 20 years. Larkin’s wallcoverings are housed in the permanent collections of the Louvre’s Department of Decorative Arts and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Design Commerce Agency is proud to represent Anya Larkin Studio in its collaboration with Koroseal Interior Products.
