Cosy Advocate Josef Frank (+ His Rad Rugs)

Josef Frank Rug

 

Josef Frank was all over the beautiful pattern design thing, wasn’t he?

I’ve been liking finding out more about him, as his work is celebrated all over again, possiblyΒ due toΒ The Fashion and Textile Museum (London) exhibition of his work.

I like it that he was a cosy advocate… I am one of those too.

The home must not be a mere effective machine. It must offer comfort, rest, and coziness (soothing to the eye, stimulating to the soul). There are no puritan principles in good interior decoration – Josef Frank

 

(Plus… I realised I want a Josef Frank couch. It’s a problem…)

More Josef here.
