Talk about a graphic art installation. Artist Aeneas Wilder, seen below, takes a closer look at his latest work, Untitled #155, which he spent 200 hours making from uniform lengths of wood with no fixative. If you're in England, head to Longside Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see the piece in person.
Inspired by the black and white stripes of Wilder's work, I took a look at some ways you can add graphic stripes to your casa. Bold black and white stripes are a good way to add pattern and movement to a space. They pair well with everything from pastels to bold primary colors.
One of my perennial favorites in the stripes department is Ikea's bold and beautiful Rand Rug ($200, bottom row, center). The handwoven flatweave wool rug is reversible and features an alternating stripe pattern in its middle section that breaks up the look.
You can try adding a smaller touch of stripes to your tabletop with Diane von Furstenberg's Striped Napkin Ring Set ($43, top row, left). Made of resin, I'd love to see them paired with turquoise napkins on a white table overlooking the ocean. A perfect Summer dinner party look, don't you think?
