Botanical prints bridge historical and contemporary design

Botanical motifs have a long and lovely history in design for the home. I saw some particularly pretty iterations of it when I popped into Green Light District, a west-end Toronto store with home furnishings and accessories personally sourced from around the world by owners Deborah and David. Everything is original design, made to order using natural materials, with a significant hand-made component, craftsmanship and a commitment to eco and social consciousness. These pieces come from Evolution Products, a South Africa-based design studio whose mission is to transform “nostalgic narratives… into products that celebrate the past and cultivate our unique relationship with time and geographical space.”
