Ethan Allen, a leading global interior design company and a renowned manufacturer and retailer of quality home furnishings, announced the launch of its latest product line – the Vintage Textile Prints Collection. This extraordinary and exclusive compilation of artwork was curated from a rare portfolio of nineteenth-century drawings and paintings by artists of the Brulet Lecomte textile design studio in France. Comprised of 53 prints, the collection includes bold florals and evocative abstracts, and is now officially available for purchase.
“The Vintage Textile Print Collection is a perfect example of what Ethan Allen is known and loved for; delivering unique yet livable quality craftsmanship to our customers,” said Farooq Kathwari, Chairman, CEO, and President, Ethan Allen. “Through this remarkable collection of rare prints, Ethan Allen is bringing timeless, collectible works of art into the homes of customers all over the world.”
Procured by an antiquarian book dealer especially for Ethan Allen, these never-before-seen prints capture the exquisite brilliance of textile art and celebrate the unsung French artists who created them over a century ago. Each piece in the Vintage Textile Print Collection is created using giclée, a superior digital printing process. The image is meticulously sprayed onto acid-free cotton rag paper using pigmented archival inks, capturing the timeworn veneer and authenticity of the original versions with exceptional detail. The print is then skillfully framed in distinguished solid wood molding to enhance its design making each piece truly special.
This collection is entirely unique; only a small lot of Lecomte portfolios were made during the nineteenth century. Today, one is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in other parts of the world, only a few remain. Each piece is meant to stand beautifully on its own or combined to make a unique statement in any room. The 53 prints in the collection feature striking motifs that draw inspiration from a variety of influences, including lilacs, daisies, roses, dandelions, ferns, and other botanicals; dots, lines, and other geometric forms; iconic medallions; French gardens; and lunar eclipses.
The new collection will retail for $310.00 - $1,490.00 USD and will be available for purchase online and through all Ethan Allen Design Centers across the United States and Canada. For more information on the collection or the brand, visit www.ethanallen.com.
