This is a gorgeous piece for a lady’s lounge or the office of an entrepreneur. Would look wonderful framed in antique gold.

Now this is everything! Such a fun way to style a monogram in both a classic yet modern way. This is perfect for a coffee table at home or for a charcuterie board at a wedding or event.
Create a custom graphic for your family. This is a beautifully styled family print that can be passed from generation to generation with bold classic style.
We love this photo of Ciara and definitely want to know where she got his emerald green chair from!

According to Ciara’s website: Every once in a while, you stumble across something so offbeat, it’s beautiful. I was once told “pretty” and “strange” was the best way to describe me, and it’s also the best summation of the things I create. Whimsical, odd, and a little perplexing, but also detailed, refined and elegant.
