Homewares label Peter Daavid is the latest creation of Castlemaine artist Peter Daavid Hignett.
Limited-edition cushion covers and original canvas art inspired by travel experiences, each is accompanied by the background story behind its creation. Whether a vase found in an antiques store in Hobart or floor tiles in Rome, each piece comes complete with a unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
As Peter explains:
"I wanted to focus on creating cushions and small canvases as an easy and affordable way to update the look of your favourite room. To provide a simple design solution that adds seasonal flair that is fun, interesting and completely unique.
Especially the cushions! I wanted to translate my designs onto fabric so people could have original art for their furniture. Think of them as limited edition art prints that are exclusive but not elusive and not boring!."
Peter Daavid cushion covers are artisan, designed in Castlemaine, Australia, 100% cotton and created from a Fair Trade supply chain. No nasty mass-produced products here.
Peter Daavid canvas art is created by Peter, using various techniques from abstract painting, screen printing and transfer printing. This means each piece is original since it has been created by hand.
