When it comes to feature wall ideas, it’s time to consider going beyond paint to explore some left-of-centre style solutions. Cue the romantic music, because there’s a Melbourne brand making fabric art for your walls that you’re going to fall hard for.
Alex and Elle is the brand producing this divine wall art solution. A Scandinavian art and design company, the two ladies behind the biz – Alex Frandfors and Eleonore Snell – have created stunning pieces with Swedish flair.
What makes these large-scale fabric artworks so special is that the textiles are so unique. Designed by Scandinavian artists and then imported, the fabrics are applied by hand to the board, right here in Melbourne, resulting in a bold piece of art you can apply to any wall you choose. It’s a nice point of difference to be able to rock some fabric on your walls at home that you won’t see everywhere.
“We knew we wanted to create something together which we were passionate about,” the ladies tell me, “something unique from Scandinavia that we could connect with”.
“You can select to display one of the larger pieces on its own in your space, or mount a few side by side for additional impact”.
I’ve served up feature wall ideas on TLC Interiors in the past, but if you’re a bit wary of committing to painting or wallpapering an entire section of your home, these fabric artworks give you large-scale visual impact without any chance of regret. There are also an array or designs; strong, graphic options as well as softer, more subdued pieces (I’m obsessed with the red floral artwork above).
There are also multiple size options, which means you can select to display one of the larger pieces on its own in your space, or mount a few side by side for additional impact.
