Diving into the depths of the ocean, we encounter a world of natural beauty and rich textures that have inspired countless designs across various mediums. One such example is the GORGONIAN pattern from our “By The Sea” Collection. Inspired by the intricate and luxurious textures found in sea corals, GORGONIAN celebrates the captivating forms and fluidity of underwater life. Digitally-printed on textured type II commercial-grade, non-woven material and available in four stunning colorways - STEEL, OCEAN, STONE and CHARCOAL - this pattern features a sprawling abstract coral motif that evokes the sensation of being submerged in a contemporary gallery within an underwater world. Being one of the most unique designs within this collection, we wanted to talk about it in greater detail and provide some insight into how we’ve worked it into a variety of different spaces.
GORGONIAN's graphic design features an abstract coral motif set against a choice of base colors - light grey for the STONE colorway, black on white for CHARCOAL, light blue on white for OCEAN or dark grey on grey for STEEL. One of its most compelling qualities is its flexibility, modularity and ability to thrive in various contexts. The pattern can be tailored to suit the unique requirements of individual projects, ensuring that each space retains its distinct character while benefiting from the enchanting design. The range of colorways we offer allow for effortless coordination with existing décor, while the abstract nature of the pattern ensures that it remains visually engaging without overwhelming the space.
For residential projects, GORGONIAN's dimensional and textured appearance makes it an excellent choice for various spaces within a home. Its natural design has been featured in bedrooms, where it serves as an exquisite backdrop, as well as in bathrooms, creating a serene, aquatic ambiance. GORGONIAN's unique pattern ensures that it complements a variety of interior styles, enhancing any space with its organic fluidity and understated elegance.
GORGONIAN's versatility also extends to commercial applications, where its adaptability and visual appeal truly shine. A prime example is its use in CHARCOAL at the chic, Texas restaurant, Uptown Sushi, designed by A Parallel Architecture. Here, the pattern covers nearly all the walls, harmonizing beautifully with mustard gold accents in the seating and lighting, as well as dark grey upholstery and carpeting. The result is a sleek, modern, and inviting atmosphere that reflects the restaurant's trendy setting and innovative culinary offerings.
In both residential and commercial settings, GORGONIAN's inherent fluidity and whimsical luxury create a captivating atmosphere that invites both contemplation and appreciation. As we continue to explore and celebrate the wonders of the natural world, patterns like GORGONIAN serve as a reminder of the beauty and serenity that can be found beneath the waves. By capturing the essence of sea corals, GORGONIAN pays tribute to the enchanting world that exists beneath the surface and invites us to bring a piece of that magic into our everyday lives.
