About The Artwork

This one-of-a-kind solid oak Georgian armchair was personally sourced by Sam Wilde and restored to it's former glory with a bold Vespertine twist. Expertly upholstered in irresistibly soft velvet, featuring the ominous world of Quandary Quagmire in the colourway Emerald Everglade. A dramatic marshland where luminous man-made pollution encroaches on the precious little space reserved for the natural kingdom. Under the looming shadows of the giant prickly cacti, these elusive beasts spend their days confined to hazardous islands surrounded by ever-encroaching toxic goop. The inspiration behind this world came from fantastical animal skin rugs designed by renowned Austrian-born architect, artist and textile designer Josef Frank. Frank’s imaginative body of work reflects the beauty and fragility of the natural world, and the rugs he created offered a genuine alternative to real animal skins that were popular in peoples homes at the time. Adding an opulent statement to any room, put you feet up and sink into the tall supportive back, charming carved arms and loose yourself in the mysterious swampy world of Quandary Quagmire.

Sam Wilde positions his practice at the intersection of visual art and surface design and is best known for storytelling through his signature worldbuilding approach to pattern creation. Sam founded the luxury British interiors, fashion and homeware brand Vespertine, to not only to enrich our bodies, homes and spaces with worlds depicting unabashed warmth and personality. But also to empower the viewer through each pattern’s conceptual message, and evoke in them a sense of childhood wonderment for the epics hidden within. Sam considers the surfaces he creates as their own visually escapist worlds. Great consideration is taken so that each and every element within these worlds builds to form a logically cohesive scene, filled to the brim with nuanced symbolism and immersive detail.
