Denim Art

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

The new Serena and Lily catalog arrived yesterday. They have changed their logo to better
represent their ever expanding brand. Lucky us-- their offerings are only getting bigger and better.

I was struck by this image {pg 5} of a crisp navy and white bedroom.

See that denim wallhanging behind the bed? Interestingly enough, when I was searching for
 my clients dresser this past weekend, I came across quite a bit of denim and americana art.  

This impressively large {6 feet long and 4 feet tall} is framed in a {HEAVY} steel frame.
These are bigger than a twin mattress!! They are BIG!

If you get really close you can see the stitches that hold every 'state' together.
Probably not a weekend project ;)


Hello, North Carolina!


This equally large piece was constructed with the waistbands attached end to end.
 The entire edge was then finished with little rivets--like the ones on your jeans.

When we think denim, in decorating, we tend to think 'country' or 'cottage', but I love that the
scale and the steel frame on these pieces actually lends itself to be used beautifully in a 
contemporary space. These would be fantastic in a loft!     

I went to another store and discovered these pretty pieces. Although these are in 2 different
locations, I can only assume that these were made by the same artist.

If the 6ft piece is a little too large for your liking, then here is a smaller 4ft piece framed in a
simple white distressed frame. In contrast to the above examples, this is more of a traditional
 presentation due to the size and framing


You know how strong denim is, so it actually works quite well as the seat and back on this rocker.

And what a fun way to breathe new life into a simple white chair. These were done with star stencils
and painters tape. I'm not sure if she used regular spray paint or fabric spray paint. Cute, right?

So what do you think? Are you on board for the americana trend?

If that is what Americana looks like, then I am all for it. Great finds! Cathy
