Ruben Toledo for Ralph Pucci International

THE COLLISION OF ART, FASHION AND HOME DESIGN


I have always loved the amazing illustrations of artist Ruben Toledo

His drawings are so whimsical, and have a wondrous surreal quality...

Ruben Toledo has painted on every surface you can think of....mannequins, store windows, book covers, dishes, fabrics, carpets.....Now he has crossed over into the world of home design! He teamed with Pucci International, an eclectic showroom of mannequins, art and home furnishings to create a collection of unique furniture.... each table and chair is white-washed oak painted with free flowing eyes, faces and silhouettes. So dream-like, so theatrical...love it! 



 To give you some insights, Ruben Toledo has
