floral finds


With the temps in the teens, perhaps I just have spring on the brain, but there are some really nice florals over at Anthro at the moment. Clockwise, from top left: colossal bloom rug, mauveverdant acres dinnerware; recherche dessert platescolossal bloom rug, rouge.

Artist Susan Happersett and Purgatory Pie Press, owned by Esther Smith and Dikko Faust, are suing Anthropologie, Inc. for copyright infringement of their work entitled “Fibonacci Flower”. The plaintiffs claim that on October 24, 2008, representatives from Anthropologie were observed photographing the Fibonacci Flower design which was on display at the New York Artist Book Fair.
Anthropologie subsequently manufactured and sold a rug called the “Colossal Bloom Rug” which is alleged to be a copy of plaintiffs’ Fibonacci Flower design. According to Plaintiffs, Anthropologie never asked for permission to use or license the copyrighted design.
Plaintiffs filed their copyright infringement lawsuit on April 14, 2009 in the Eastern District of New York. They are asking for at least $150,000 in damages.
