Folksy Fun
Alexander Girard

Loving these objects from House Industries inspired by or based on the works of reknowned textile designer Alexander Girard. While working in Herman Miller in the 50s to 70s, Girard designed fabrics for the likes of Ray and Charles Eames. He had a great interest in folk art and colorful, exotic designs from around the world.

Aptly, folksy elements in bright palettes are featured heavily in these collections. Top: solid maple nativity set (currently sold out) based on a Girard illustration; below: basswood memory game.
