Like a waft of music, the pan flute inspired the Rialto Sculpture. This unusual form came to South + English via the Hudson Valley and Spain. Strange bedfellows? Hardly. A Catalonian original – something conical and reminiscent of our Rialto – caught English’s eye in a Hudson, NY, market. Crafted in Sculptor White and set on an Oralia Gold platform base. Overall: W15 x D7 x H9.
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.
