Lise Lefebvre, an up-and-comer in the design scene, puts a modern spin on contemporary furnishings. Her latest projects include ‘Blanket Statement’ and ‘Bärenjäger.’ These attention-grabbing floor pieces put a twist on the contemporary bear skin rug.
Lefebvre uses 100% eco-friendly recycled wool blankets to fabricate these striking pieces. The carpets are shaped like olden-day bear skin rugs. She then models ceramic bear heads from scratch and hand paints each ferocious tooth.
Lefebvre is a textile artist, product designer and teacher at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Her pieces really put a modern day spin on outdated items.
Bärenjäger (when translated means the bear hunter) and Blanket Statement are great pieces that are sure to cause a stir in any room.
