French textile artist Hélène Barrier has recently turned her attention upon furniture including a mattress Hélène has made these objects into unique art objects by hand embellishing them with embroidery. The mattress is over 100 hours of work, the chair is over 400 hours.
"Beyond recycling, the important basis of my work is to transform the object, to take it elsewhere, to other areas. The fabric keeps in mind the history of the object. Each piece is unique, and often made to order." Hélène Barrier
