H&M Home has collaborated with the British Museum on a seven-piece homeware collection featuring the works of 18th century artist, Mary Delany.

H&M Home’s new botanical print collection with the British Museum intertwines art with modern-day living in a way that is accessible for all – and prices start from just £1.99.

The beautiful collaboration features the botanical prints of 18th century artist, Mary Delany, and launches in stores and online from Thursday 17th September. Perfect for an autumn home update, the seven-piece collection taps into Mary’s famous ‘paper mosaics’ design, including gorgeous vases, candles, ceramic plates, mugs and cushion covers.

In keeping with Mary’s original prints and the Romanticism movement in the 1800s, each piece features flowers printed against a black background.

‘In the beginning of the design process for the season, a lot of 18th-century British references sparked our imagination – the art, the Romanticism movement and beautiful gardens,’ says Guillaume Vaillant, concept designer at H&M Home.

‘When we started looking into the catalogue of work at The British Museum, we were immediately drawn to Mary Delany’s stunning paper mosaics. Their black background reveals the delicate intensity of the flowers and the handicraft is incredible. Poetic and mysterious, Delany’s artwork is still relevant today and with this collaboration, look beautiful in any modern home.’

Mary first began painting floral collages at the age of 72, and went on to create breathtaking works which have been celebrated by all. Her paintings, which are housed in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, are some of the most-visited on display there.

Want to get your hands on the pieces? The collaboration will be in selected stores and online from Thursday 17th September, with prices ranging from £1.99 to £29.99. As with all limited edition ranges, make sure you don’t miss out.
