Josef Frank fabrics and wallpaper have been an obsession of mine for awhile now. They have extremely colorful, vibrant, free-flowing and organic patterns inspired by Frank's love of botany. The unique patterns seem to buck against the other linear and grid-like design aesthetics that were happening at the time of their design.

Companies such as IKEA and Pottery Barn have fabrics that were clearly inspired by Josef Frank but I still covet the orginals.

One of my favorite quotes about home design/decorating is from Josef Frank.

"The home does not have to be planned out in detail, just put together by pieces its inhabitants love."
