A Harlequin is mostly commonly known as a clown or jester in tights and mask. Their dress of diamond or checkerboard patterns, bright bold colours and exaggerated shapes are being translated into interior design styles, furniture and homewares.
Dazzling and theatrical, the style adopts features from 1500 and 1600’s Tudor design, and interprets them into quirky playful spaces and pieces.
These new side tables from Uocmas exude theatrical elegance, and play on Harlequin motifs.
With its curved silhouette and geometric detailing, the Amelia Chest from Oly San Francisco is the quintessential Harlequin style piece.
