Bridge Set x Margaret Preston
Third Drawer Down proudly presents a new collection of stunning textiles featuring artwork from one of Australia's most celebrated modernists, Margaret Preston. Honouring the artist's gift of capturing Australian native flora, this is a spectacular way to bring art into the home. This bridge set features the artworks: West Australian Banksia and Waratahs. Gorgeous Australian flora and the artist signature make these a wonderful gift for those abroad to showcase Australian art history.
Preston's desire to make uniquely Australian images meant many of her works feature flowers such as the Banksia, Waratah, and Gum Blossom all presented in radical, asymmetrical compositions.
