Carren's Pitch

Life by Design

There's something about nature that's simply, viscerally beautiful and entrepreneur Christopher Wilcox knows it. His art house, Natural Curiosities, has been flourishing in Echo Park because of enchanting prints and products all inspired by Mother Nature. I found this little gem because of a jaunt thanks to Los Angeles Design Festival, which is currently ongoing. If you have time, check them out too!

Englishman Christopher Wilcox—a self-described “visual dude” and “archivist”—always knew he would do something out of the ordinary. Wilcox’s predilection for conservation and creativity found its appropriate outlet in Natural Curiosities, his wonderland of an art house located in Los Angeles.

A fully wholesale business, Natural Curiosities creates wall art, furniture, sculpture pieces and objets d’art that are sold at Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue and other outlets as well as to the interior design trade. Natural Curiosities pieces, which explore themes of nature, can range from $45 for a small silk-screened print to several thousand dollars for a 72-inch square piece made of 3,000 gold-painted feathers arranged in a radiating pattern. Now in its 10th year of operation, Natural Curiosities—which employs about 25 conceptual artists and designers at its main Echo Park studio and about 50 artisans at a separate L.A. facility—serves more than 5,000 clients in 26 countries.  [read more]
