Divine Design: Laura Kirar for Arteriors Home

Having spent the weekend “oohing and ahhing” over the pages of the latest Traditional Home (and not only because we’re in it – see page 76!), we had to post about the fabulous work of Laura Kirar for Arteriors Home.  A graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Laura has designed collections for the likes of Baker, McGuire and Tufenkian.  This latest endeavor allows her to create living art and organic forms from bronze, glass and ceramic, so that we can all “bring home the joyous quality of nature.”

We love every single piece of Laura’s collection – from the mix of geometry and whimsy to the elegant, yet modern shapes, there’s definitely something for every taste and decorating style.

      Thanks, Catherine. The story is on the bedroom Charlotte Lekakos designed in the first ever “green” designer showhouse. It’s beautiful!

    Laura, Just ran across your blog tonight and love your work. I am trying to construct a light fixture and I am looking for bronze bobeches (also my new favorite word). Do you have any ideas?

    Also love the vases!
