In the “Design Hunting” issue of New York magazine, “The Hunt” featured the Fleur de Lys mosaic pattern from New Ravenna’s Jardins Français Collection, the crisp white tones of the products against the slick black backdrop showing off each choice dynamically as you can see if the visual below. Items from noted manufacturers like FLOS, Liz O’Brien and MUJI are also featured. You can see the full placement by clicking through to the PDF.
New Ravenna introduced the collection of five mosaics designed by Beaupere in July 2017. The mosaics are handcrafted in Virginia from combinations of natural stone, brass, aluminum, glass, and shell. The Jardins Français collection was inspired by the formal gardens of France, from their ornate ironwork to their intricate symmetry. The variety of materials represent the four seasons, and the subtle shifts of Mediterranean light. Winter is represented by a brisk tonal white and grey in Jardin de Villandry; Spring is enlivened by luminescent shell used in Fleur de Lys; vivid summer light glows in a Monet blue glass in Jardin de Giverny; and it is the brass in Jardin de Versailles that emulates the golden hues of Fall.
Caroline Beaupere, a New York and Connecticut based interior designer says of Jardins Français, “I grew up in Provence and spent my childhood visiting Morocco, Spain, and Italy. I was greatly inspired by Gaudi’s work in Barcelona. The theme of this mosaic collection comes from my favorite gardens in France. I’ve replicated pathways leading to fountains and iron grill work using the unlimited creativity of mosaic available at New Ravenna.”
Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Every mosaic in the Jardins Français collection can be installed indoors or out, on floors or walls. The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.
