artist love: alexander girard

This weekend I was so blessed to find a reproduction of one of Alexander Girard's prints while treasure hunting at an antique mall. You all know how I have been searching high and low for the PERFECT art piece for the nursery.  Everyone kept telling me that when I saw it, I would know...
Well, I saw it, and I knew :)

 I mean, could it get any more perfect?  I don't think so!
Here is a little bit about this incredibly talented designer...

"Girard worked with George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames to form a design team that has influenced the fundamentals of design throughout the United States and the rest of the world. Girard initially established a fabric collection based on his architectural training. His first fabric line consisted of plain upholsteries and geometric drapery prints—stripes, circles, and triangles. He went on to create many more patterns and designs, largely inspired by folk art.  Girard also developed a furniture collection for Herman Miller in 1967." (source)

Well, when you design with people like Eames, Miller and Nelson, you are pretty much top- notch.
Alexander Girard is one of my most favorite designers out there and I was pleasantly surprised to find this peice and make it mine.
  Here are some of my other favorites...

And these two Alexander Girard things have been added to le baby's registry as well :)
