Coral is certainly having a moment, isn’t it?
Pieces of the white, textural natural beauty are popping up everywhere from the luxe end of the spectrum at Kelly Hoppen, to the High Street at Zara Home.
As a lover of mixing textures, especially of varying neutrals, I have fallen for its purity, roughness and detail. But, like many of us, if we’re honest enough, I have a slight reluctance at loving what’s trend-hot.
Who doesn’t want to be original after all?
It’s with this that I set out to find a coral sculpture that was both beautiful and abstract.
Something that didn’t look too reproduced and therefore plonked into every living space, yet something still resembling all I love about this oceanic beauty.
And here is what I have found – this stunning “Great Barrier” piece by US décor team John Richards.
It’s a refreshing contrast to the wispy, finger-like coral strands often seen – a more solid looking piece that both catches the eye, yet remains simplistic.
The reproduced coral nest sits atop a gleaming crystal base with a polished nickel stand.
Beautiful isn’t it?!
The Great Barrier coral sculpture is available to order through LuxDeco here >
My order is pending and I’m about to undertake some dramatic living room updates… involving painting half my walls a rich charcoal. Watch this space for my own styling of this lovely piece!
