things we love





Producing over 200 patterns between 1909 and 1950, Franks’s designs defied contemporary sensibilities by offering a welcome contrast to the linear, grid-like restrictions that defined modernism, the Bauhaus and others. “Every human needs a certain degree of sentimentality to feel free,” Frank said… “Away with the universal styles, away with the equalization of industry and art.” And therein lies his magic–patterns that are almost architectural in their generous scale, that show an affection for craft and reconcile seemingly disparate historic traditions and modern invention.
