We are all about collaborations here at Annie Selke and we’re really excited about one of our latest with artist and designer Laura Park.
As a child, Laura’s favorite memories took place in her grandmother’s studio in Lexington, NC, where her passion for art was born. She loved going with her grandmother to fabric stores where Laura would collect brightly colored scraps from the floor to take home to piece together into patchwork quilts.
As an adult, she initially set aside art to pursue a career as an elementary school teacher, but the creative drive never left her. Seven years ago, she created her retail space, Laura Park Interiors, at Cotswold Marketplace in Charlotte, where she sold her paintings and interior decor.
Annie and Laura first teamed up a year-and-a-half ago after Annie was stopped in her tracks by Laura’s artwork. Annie immediately saw an opportunity to translate Laura’s ethereal artwork and design aesthetic into restful looks for a collection of bedding, rugs and accessories.
Now, expanding on the initial spring 2018 collection with Laura Park, we’ve translated more of Laura’s brilliant palettes and uniquely stylized prints into everything from bedding and rugs to custom upholstery and breezy loungewear. The collaboration is really the perfect marriage of Laura’s playful, yet sophisticated style and our passion for beautiful, quality-conscious designs.
