Adoring the Abstract
‘Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.’ - Tate Gallery
At Voyage, we are well known for our depictions of enchanting plant life and charming creatures; inspiration coming so easily from the natural world. Our designers, however, enjoy the freedom to express the seasons, weather, and wildlife in abstract terms. Realistic representations can become wild proclamations, alluding to the elements and the very essence of nature. The huge benefit of using abstract interior furnishings is that they are incredibly flexible and tend to fit easily into any room. Today, we turn our attention to a few of our favourite abstract designs, which could just be what your home needs to imbue a sense of freshness.
Ink Abstraction Forest Cushion
We love our Ink Abstraction Forest Cushion. The front panel of the cushion was created by using a watercolour bleed marbling effect, in our Glasgow studio. The effect is visually stunning and looks utterly organic. A spectrum of warm greens and blues sprawl across the panel, alluding to the unwieldy nature of plant life. With a satin front and velvet back, this cushion is sophisticated to touch and will sit well in any stylish sitting room.
Expressions Veridian Cushion
Taking advantage of the same marbling technique, our Expressions Veridian cushion is instantly icier in feel. Whilst the design also uses a green and blue palette, it is remarkably different, alluding to chilly deep seas and fresh mountain streams. The cushion is refreshing and would suit a modern and minimalist environment.
Calla Lily Abstract Oil Painting
This hand-painted, one-off oil painting is an impressive piece of art that would bring a sense of grandeur to any room. The flurry of pinks, blues and whites is frenetic and passionate; one can’t help thinking of dusk and the passing of time. Meanwhile, the purply pinks give this painting a romantic air, making this an ideal piece for a bedroom.
