The Chelsea Flower Show is back with us again, with even more fabulous blooms and must-see gardens. To celebrate, Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler is showcasing 25 flower-themed paintings by renowned artist Pat Albeck at its fabulous new Pimlico showroom, below.The new exhibition, entitled A Cut Above, will be on display in the store until this Saturday 27 May, with the paintings priced from £900. We’re particularly taken with the Allium, Canary Bird & Grapes painting, top. ‘I have always loved and drawn flowers, important when creating textile images,’ says Pat. ‘I work from life and began experimenting with a number of different techniques but I have discovered that cut paper is my very favourite technique.’
As well as introducing buyers to Albeck’s fabulous fleurs, the beautifully set out showroom gives you the chance to shop from a timeless and expertly curated selection of antiques and contemporary pieces, alongside lighting, upholstery and other items that can be custom-made to order.
