A modern reclining nude, Motti is inspired by a textured terra cotta midcentury sculpture South + English happened upon in Nice. (Yes, vacations always include shopping excursions.) The Motti Sculpture is a lovely objet d’art for any Cote d’Azur salon, of course – and stylish American homes too. Crafted in Sculptor White and set on an Oralia Gold platform base. Overall: W19 x D11 x H14.
South + English (Palmer Smith and David Ebbetts respectively) are avid art collectors and count sculpture among their most prized possessions. In fact, South told Luxe Magazine, “If the house were on fire, art would be the first thing out.” S+E has lovingly created a collection of sculpture inspired by their world travels. Nearly every piece in the collection has an inspirational antecedent, and the original lives in one of S+E’s residences.
