Investigating Interiors: Floriis

Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design continues to nurture and produce fabulously talented people. Earlier this year, one of their very own, designer and friend Paul Felix  revealed his line of artisan crafted flowers in paper, vintage nostalgic gifts, home, bespoke bridal and event dressing collection. And that is putting it mildly, as Floriis, is all of that and a great deal more.

Hand crafted paper flowers, recycled glass/lacquered paper lanterns, mirrors and cofrés that make beautiful gifts, and one-off 'Art Arrangements'.

In the Algarve region of Portugal these precious items are available from the 'Côrte-Real Gallery', Paderne, 'Casa das Portas', Tavira and 'gosto', Quatro Estradas. Almancil.

 Barrette 'Concha'


Christmas Tree decoration: glitter frosted paper & twig knot with hand-cut, painted and lacquered flowers

White Gold Antiques
All flowers are hand cut, painted, tinted and lacquered. The prints for the boxes and mirror papers are created in-house using own photos and other materials of choice, making the already bespoke service even more so......
Materials for the 'collection' include: paper, glass, fresh-water pearls, semi-precious stones, cotton, lace and pure silks. Taking inspiration from a life well-travelled the paper is from France, silks - the Far East, and the pearls and gemstones from equally exotic corners of the globe.
