In the sea of sameness and mass production that we have today, we love the authentic feel that hand-crafted items bring to a space. Rail & Stile is honored to partner with a number of skilled and talented makers who inspire us and are experts of their craft.
Meet Brian Carter,
Brian Carter Studio
For Atlanta-based visual artist, Brian Carter, the imperfect and irregular are beautiful. His artist’s eye is attuned to what most of us fail to notice in our everyday surroundings, and he is able to translate this vision into the shapes and patterns that energize his work.
It is important to Carter that the artist’s hand is clearly visible in his designs. Stripes, Greek key, fretwork, abstract florals – all have a hand-drawn, organic quality that adds depth and interest. Even his designs that are inspired by traditional motifs feel completely fresh, thanks to his unique approach to line, texture and color and play with negative and positive space.
Carter has collaborated with legendary luxury textile house Jim Thompson Fabrics on its Studio B brand, and now has his own line of fabrics that showcase his remarkable ability to seamlessly mix various mediums, including paint, ink and pencil, and techniques such as stamping and brushwork to create unique effects. Most important to him is that his fabric designs communicate the high level of craftsmanship and evoke a comfortable, effortless and relaxed feeling.
