Sea Hyun Lee’s paintings combine elements of both the North and South Korean mountains.  I like the way Lee borrows the characteristics of Toile de Jouy in his paintings, all are infused with a sophisticated sense of nostalgia, and a wry idea of utopia. Haunting and politically charged with an element of the subversive lurking just beneath the surface. His work depicts the political stress apparent between the two countries in the most subtle of ways.

This toile by Manuel Canovas would be an awesome backdrop to the Cappellini Pylon Chair.
