Ceraudo's latest fabric and furniture range - Orpha - is an ode to the rhythm and colours of the Orphism movement. According to Wikipedia (of course!) "Orphism or Orphic Cubism, a term coined by the French poet Guillaume Apollinaire in 1912, was an offshoot of Cubism that focused on pure abstraction and bright colors, influenced by Fauvism, the theoretical writings of Paul Signac, Charles Henry and the dye chemist Eugène Chevreul." Well, ok then

Most of us would know of the movement mainly from the work of Sonia Delaunay, for whom a retrospective blockbuster exhibition in 2015 at the Tate Modern helped rejuvinate interest in her abstract art and also brought her to prominence ahead of her more famous husband, Robert Delauney with whom they explored colour theory together. 

Now, London-based furniture and fabric brand Ceraudo takes her art, her spirit of engaging with more than just canvas, and her forethought of launching a shop and homeware into their own 3d forms.

Whether armchairs, footstools, cushions and even a rug, Ceraudo has created a fun new collection that will act not only as comfortable support but as art pieces as they stand alone.  Plus, their organic and painterly new prints will be available online as fabrics by the metre.

There is so much charm in these pieces. Perhaps it's the names of the available colourways: Pesto, Grenadine, Seaweed, Tangerine and Coconut that do it too, or maybe it's the fact that the Orpha collection is screen printed by hand in India on 100% cotton, and made and upholstered in Portugal. Whatever tickles your fancy from this lovely new collection of pieces for your home, we know they'll make you sigh with comfort as you sink into the colour therapy-giving chairs.
