baroque wall art by rachel horrocks

rachel horrocks recently graduated from the university of the west of england, and it looks like she will have a long, fruitful career in design. take a look at these clever wall pieces she calls basic baroque. these pieces are made from super thick (15mm, or .59 inches) felt, and are easily attached to a wall, giving you the power to create your own unique composition (if you don’t want to rely on the suggested layouts, which are included). this is a terrific way to add dramatic dimension and interest to a large expanse of wall or staircase.




the pieces come in cream, but bespoke colours (like the black in the photo) are available upon request with an additional fee. they are sold in sets of six, twelve and twenty four. prices begin at £140.


rachel is also working on a prototype storage piece called shelf life, in which she explores the dynamic relationship between nature and human made objects. the individual blocks move and morph depending on the items placed within. i would imagine that viewing this piece from either side is quite intriguing.

thank you for the photos, rachel — what fabulous ideas!

    I absolutely love the idea of having small pieces of baroque shapes to make romantic details on the walls. Personally, I think it’s much better than getting some huge baroque antique.

    hi denise,

    i agree with you – there is a lot of flexibility when using pieces like rachel’s instead of a single showpiece. and these add texture and depth too.

    thanks for the visit and the insightful comment!
