Unlike the vast expanse of the ocean or the tumult of the sea, ponds are peaceful and restful sites that welcome the happy buzz of everyday natural life. Ponds are often home to myriad flora and fauna of a rich variety and are perfect for leisurely lounging behavior. The Pond celebrates the earth tones and aquatic life of its eponymous body of water by incorporating glass in two shades of blue finished in rippling browns and greens reminiscent of sunlight shining through the water’s surface to the murky shallows below. Orli says, “Ponds are like reminders to stop and smell the roses. They’re great places to simply sit and take in the sights and sounds of the natural action that goes on right in front of you every day.”
Orli likes beautiful things, and in this, she suspects that she is not alone. In fact, she suspects that you may agree. After all, form often follows function, but within form, there are multitudinous opportunities to amplify aesthetic appeal. Enter the movements of applied art, an all-encompassing approach to art and creativity that reaches far beyond the fine arts to touch industrial design and everyday objects with aesthetic design. Using fluid draping, clear and strong colors both bright and soft, and Orli’s characteristically deft blending of vintage and modern styling, Aesthete pieces are inspired by four such movements: Bauhaus, Art Neouveau, Art Deco, and Arts and Crafts.
Let’s get aesthetic.
The natural world runs wild and free at every turn, providing beauty and colors more varied and vibrant than one can possibly expect. In Verdure, Orli explores the natural world with earthy and organic hues that complement natural themes and nuanced designs.
