Florence Broadhurst - Designer Rug Collection

The most exhilarating legacy that Florence Broadhurst has left behind is a design archive that continues to make waves all over the world even today. She was a risk-taker of the highest calibre and a style maven extraordinaire. Florence lived a series of vivid and fantastic lives between the time of her birth in 1899 in a rural corner of Queensland, Australia, and the time of her unsolved murder at the age of 78. She spent the decade of the Roaring Twenties singing throughout the colonial reaches of the Far East and managing a finishing school in Shanghai with her husband. She earned the title of “Madame Pellier” in London, where she worked as a French couturier who dressed the wealthy and famous. As an aristocratic English lady and landscape painter, she relocated to Australia and resumed her career there. She did it once more, launching her defining venture at the age of sixty, which was a luxury wallpaper business that featured hand-printed designs. A whirlwind of creativity gave voice to everything she had seen and everything she had experienced, regardless of where she had been. Florence’s spirit of adventure and flamboyance continues to be reflected in her extensive archive of designs, which includes a wide variety of designs, including tapestries, geometrics, florals, and delightfully eccentric chinoiserie. Time magazine awarded Florence with international recognition for her work.
