We have worked with Dana Gibson for many years selling her line at our sister site, www.wellappointedhouse.com. We are excited to announce that she has licensed her designs and now has a line of fabrics and wall coverings through Stroheim.
She descends from a long line of artists and designers. Her mother is a painter and her grandmother was a sculptor. Dana’s great grandfather, Charles Dana Gibson, was a renowned painter and illustrator at the turn of the last century. Today, he’s probably best remembered for creating the Gibson Girl of the 1890’s, closely modeled after his wife, legendary beauty Irene Langhorne. Her great aunt, Nancy Astor, was the first woman to be elected to the House of Commons and another aunt, Nancy Lancaster, was an owner of the esteemed firm Colefax and Fowler.
Dana launched her design business, twenty years ago, with a line of hand sculpted porcelain wares. Major retailers including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Henri Bendel took notice, embracing her style and charm. The Well Appointed House started carrying her line on-line around 2006. Fashioned by hand and painted in colorful cutting garden colors, many of the same floral and pastoral themes continue to abound in Dana’s work today. Her items have always been popular with our clientele.
I have selected some of my favorites of her new collection. Click here to view it all for yourself and contact The Well Appointed House ([email protected]) if you would like to order fabrics or wallpaper.
The best part of these coordinating collections is that you can buy beautiful lamps, picture frames, wastebaskets, pillows and other soft goods that Dana also designed that will coordinate with the above collections. It’s a quick and easy way to pull a beautiful room together. I love her use of color – these designs are great for a colorful sun porch, beach or pool house!
