It all started with pillows. My favorite interior designer/artist/fashion illustrator of the moment, Luke Edward Hall first put urns, classical busts and snakes on embroidered pillows and they were an instant hit. His fresh colors and whimsical animal illustrations brought a new take and something unexpected. I first took notice of Hall's unique perspective in 2014, (you can read my profile here) when he was working with British designer and classical architect, Ben Pentreath. His talents were supported by fellow color and classical design enthusiast, Bridie Hall, Pentreath's partner in the most exciting design shop in London, Pentreath and Hall. It has been amazing to see Hall's illustrations in artwork, on plates, in Burberry ad campaigns and now, they are available in a collection for Anthropologie. Catch his fantastical animal safari of elephants, tigers and flamingos on upholstered chairs, lampshades, wallpaper, and soon, framed prints, with a signature dose of British whimsy and style.
