The design “Märchen” (German; meaning fairy tale) is inspired by Fuller’s childhood memories of enchanting fairy tales, her favourite flower Peonies and the artist Cy Twombly. These three influences flow into a rich visualisation of Nicole’s imagination forming beautiful dripping Peonies clustered across the silk wallcovering. The hand-painted design is presented in seven unique colourways true to Fuller’s dramatic palette, each named after a classification of the Peony flower.
Working on the launch of “Märchen” has been an exciting process for the Fromental team, exploring a shared passion for art Nicole’s bold use of colour and new techniques to bring Nicole’s vision to life.
“Marchen is several things to me; it is both an homage to the work of Cy Twombly and the delicate, precise drip forms recurrent in his painting, and a fairy tale garden fantasy. Peonies have a duality to them; they are exuberant and robust, while at the same time ephemeral and delicate. The talented artists of Fromental have distilled these influences and ideas beautifully in my new wallcovering.” Nicole Fuller
