The noble and elegant form of the palm tree has captured the imagination of artists and designers for as long as people have had imagination and the desire to explore. There's something about palms that signpost the exotic and the graceful; a symbol of far flung adventures and tranquil lazing in the sun.
Here at Dotmaison we love to see how well creative designers use their skills to bring out the majesty of the palm tree in full. The elegant movement of palms in the slow breeze has quite rightly inspired excellent representations on all sorts of different mediums and products.
The following are a selection of some of the beautiful ways to adorn the home with designs featuring the image of the palm tree.
In the bedroom, duvet and bedding prints including patterns of palms and tropical plant life helps to create a restful and comfortable setting. The Snurk Palm Beach Duvet Set, Single has this in abundance. Made with a 160 thread count, the high quality production of duvet cover and pillowcases means that the feel of the bedding is just as peaceful as its appearance. Covered in a print of tropical leaves and palms, the set is ideal for experiencing the chilled out splendour of the palm tree.
The design house Fatface's take on the beauty of the palm tree produces a terrific result in the Fatface Oriental Crane and Palm Bedding. Available in a variety of sizes, the sets include a duvet cover and matching pillowcases. Crafted from a strong and luxurious percale cotton, the hotel quality bedding features glorious representations of blue and green fronds plus a swooping crane bird positioned on a pale background. A dreamy and relaxing way to unwind with the best palm-inspired bedding.
A charming wash bag by Elizabeth Scarlett also makes use of the versatile and always striking image of the palm tree. The Elizabeth Scarlett Palmier Coral Travel Pouch Wash Bag offers a French Riviera inspired design of palm tree combined with a natural cotton canvas material with a water resistant inner lining. Perfect for use on holiday and at home, the wash bag conjures up all sorts of dreams of holiday and adventure.
Nothing sums up comfort and relaxation like a cushion. And when said cushion is teamed with a gorgeous illustration of a garden palm tree, the effect is magically soothing. The Royal Palm Cushion from Ted Baker brings out these ideas in full effect, with a cushion detailed with fantastic yellows, pinks and blues. The high quality of the production matches the great design, and provides a wonderful chance to relax with the cushion on chair, sofa or bed.
