Bring Home a Work of Art

Posted by

It's no secret that I love Fortuny fabrics. Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a private viewing of the exhibition "Fortuny Y Madrazo: An Artistic Legacy" at the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute in New York City. Curated by Oscar de la Renta, the collection examines the work of Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo in the context of his family of painters and artists. If you're in New York, I highly recommend you visit the exhibit to experience for yourself the sumptuous fabrics and beautiful designs.

The fabrics are beyond beautiful and come in an array of incredible colors.

Martha is a veritable connoisseur of the fabrics, and uses them in almost all of her homes -- we've visited the Third Avenue showroom many times. If you're not in the market for fabric, Fortuny Interiors is a breathtaking book, and L'Objet has a collection of exquisite home goods featuring Fortuny designs available online.

I have a decadent set of four napkin rings from L'Objet, and I can attest to the quality -- they'll be excuse enough to have a party once I collect a few more.
