The Design Library is pleased to announce a major acquisition of 20th century studio paintings.
At the height of the industry, Lyon, France was the silk capital of all Europe. Thousands of working artists created hand-painted designs for the booming industry.
The Rue Royale was the main street at the historic center of original textile art. Designs that were to become silk fashion textiles originated there.
The Design Library's new collection is drawn from five important studios that closed in the late 20th century. There are thousands of original designs in exciting and diverse styles: Floral, Tropical, Geometric, Textural and Conversational patterns.
The Rue Royale Collection is now being unpacked and prepared to show our clients. A representative selection is also being uploaded to Kosmos™ for the inspiration of online subscribers.
