The ornately detailed designs of Ancient Egypt are highly regarded at this art studio, which is why we’d like to see it become a bigger trend. I’ve seen trickles of it here and there for a good while, but nothing near the scope of the tribal trends of the last year or so. The most abundant and popular interpretations seem to be in the form of jewelry, so when Mara Hoffman’s King Tut print became available on bags, swim suits and dresses, we pretty much flipped out. Do you think ancient Egyptian motifs have staying power in surface design? Do you think it would work for interiors? Discuss!
