I’ve been a fan of Dana Gibson’s work for a while now.
I first recognized Dana’s work when it was sold under the Moses Spring name. I worked at The Kellogg Collection in Washington, DC and we carried her line of ceramic lamps (I’m guessing it was about 10 years ago). These lamps were notable because of their uniqueness – the hand crafted bases of pink pigs, spotted cows and blue primula flowers – were a quiet, but humorous nod to the English countryside style (which was still influencing the design world in early 2000). But, what really caught my eye were the hand painted lampshades that accompanied her one-of-a-kind lamps – bold pastel stripes!
Since then, Dana Gibson’s home accents line has greatly evolved.
She uses TOLE to create her lamps, trays, waste baskets, and picture frames.
But, the contemporary use of bright colors mixed with pattern and chinoiserie chic – always make me pause!
And, well, WHO doesn’t love a little bit ‘o leopard every once in a while! I DO!
This past spring, she teamed up with Jane Wilner to create a line of custom bed linens.
And, teamed up with Stroheim to distribute her eye-catching and bold fabric and wallpaper designs!
Here are a few of my favorites that I found at the Fabricut Showroom here in Atlanta.
|Canton (Vases), Kira Kuba, and Twig wallpaper|
|Little Lanin, grass (wallpaper), Montenegro, Bombay|
|Trot wallpaper in Persimmon/Brown|
|Trot wallpaper in Lime/Brown|

Did you find anything that you want in YOUR home? If so, call or email me – I can get it for you!
Have a great Monday!
I so love her work – especially her lamps!
I"m a sucker for blue/white ginger jars…love the bold patterns and high contrast. Especially in all these delicious candy shades, so perfect for a pick-me-up when everyone's rocking neutrals through fall!
If you have a moment, would love to get your thoughts on my latest design!
Peace. Love. LOL!
