The Genius of Josef Frank

“The home must not be a mere efficient machine.  It must offer comfort, rest, and coziness.”

-Josef Frank

One of his many beautiful textiles he created for the Swedish furniture company, Svenskt Tenn.

He didn’t believe in rules and cared more about joy over restraint.  I think that’s quite apparent in his designs.

Although most of Frank’s  furniture and textiles were designed in the 1930’s-40’s, most are still in production today.

I’m thinking about wallpapering my walk-in closet or powder room with one his designs.  Just makes me happy.
