OVERVIEW

 

This month the Plascon Spaces Showroom plays host to a spectacular room set that combines 1920s Great Gatsby glamour with the African-period style of one of the world's most famous artists, Pablo Picasso. The room set features Plascon's Metallic and Pearl paint range with glittering, bespoke furniture.

The unusual stage set is the brainchild of Decorator Sandi Larkin. Larkin worked in collaboration with First Impressions, South Africa's premium hiring company, which specializes in creating one-off furniture pieces and displays for high profile events. First Impressions customized all of the special pieces on show to Larkin's original drawings.

Larkin took her cue from the Art Deco period, as well as from the abstract modernism of Picasso's African period where the artist was inspired by supposedly "primitive" African masks. She exploits the juxtaposition between so-called primitive styles and the sophistication of "flapper chic" to create edginess and excitement.

DECORATOR'S TIP 

Detailed wall effects are now in the trend limelight. Experiment with shapes using pearl paints in a checkerboard or geometric pattern. Metallic and Pearl decorative wall products have a shimmer like the look of oil glittering on water and are available in degraded mauves and floral colours – along with gold, copper and silver - that fit in with the glamorous return of 1920's elegance.
