Audrey with Cascading Flowers and Butterflies
Last fall, Bergdorf Goodman launched the new home collection for Gucci Decor with much fanfare and press and this month, they’re pushing the envelope again. This time with New Orleans pop artist Ashley Longshore who is making history as the first solo female artist to be exhibited on the 7th Floor.

Her extraordinary pieces have taken over the iconic store’s Fifth Avenue windows and a 945 square foot space that typically showcases more traditional home decor brands like Kim Seybert, John Derian and of course, Diane James. From paintings featuring Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, to diamond rugs, lipstick sculptures and giant champagne corks, Ashley’s eye-catching work is having a moment and her collectors (including Blake Lively and Penelope Cruz) agree.

When asked to describe her aesthetic, this very funny artist came up with “unapologetic, colorful, celebratory, sparkly, and humorous”… And we think this is exactly what the world needs: a little more glittery goodness. We just hope Ashley’s pieces don’t sell out before we get to see them in person.

Love, like art, comes in every shape and size… so this Valentine’s Day, we want to quench your desire to transform your blank wall into something that dazzles the senses (and yes, we think a great piece of art can be romantic!) We spent four days at NY NOW in our booth drooling over this wall candy by The Oliver Gal Artist Co., just steps away from our booth. This company, based in South Florida and spearheaded by sisters Lola and Ana (even their names are sexy), is a collective of artists whose passion is to “capture life’s most haute moments, avant-garde objects and splendid lifestyles.” With their mix of fashion and pop culture with modern botanicals and a sense of glamorous whimsy, it was love at first sight. And if you’re not looking for art, you can always check out their collection of home accessories which translates their pieces into bedding, pillows, clutches and more…
