Attractive pair of pressed flowers, both collected during the same 1939 expedition by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson. These are lovely pieces of artwork, both in good vintage condition (with slight discoloration of the paper that is evidence of its pre-war heritage). One is a pressed root, stalk and flower of the Arctostaphylos uva-ursi – or more commonly the bearberry, an evergreen, trailing shrub with alternate, delicately-veined leaves and reddish papery bark and small bell-shaped, pinkish-white flowers. The bearberry is found in the subarctic Northern Hemisphere and, in the US and Canada, it is known as Kinnikinnick. This was collected by Fransson in Vaggeryd, a small community in the south of Sweden and pressed on 22 9 May 1939. The second is a root, stalk and flower of the white clover (Trifolium Repens), a herbaceous species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, native to Europe and central Asia. This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 5 July 1939. (A total of 5 pairs from the same botanist is available.)

The detailed description of the annotations on each page adds to the interest and appeal.

Would look wonderful properly framed or very simply hung on a peg.

After styling and designing luxury hotel and home interiors for 10 years for city clients, I set up ‘the textured room” in 2014 from my home studio here in Sussex. Since then I have been selling vintage and decorative items in the antique hub of Lewes and undertaking a range of interior design commissions in Sussex and beyond.

I love simple interiors that reflect the simplicity of country life and the ease of country living. In today’s busy world, I believe we all have a need to remind ourselves of the beauty of nature and its simplicity, and bring them back into our homes. This is why I love the imperfect and its textures, mixing the old with the new, the natural with the beautifully weathered-by-everyday-life pieces – imperfect pieces that eventually find their perfect place in our homes.

Today, we are selling online and delivering beautiful stripped-back and natural-style homes and premises for our clients. I hope you will like our interiors and our latest handpicked collection of items.
