Discover pajaki, one of the hottest interior trends in recent years

Polish artist Karolina Merska’s richly ornamented, reimagined pajaki mobiles have caught the attention of design shows and interiors magazines across the world. Pajaki literally means “spiders of straw,” and using simple materials such as rye straw, dried peas, and paper, women in Poland would create cheerful chandeliers to decorate their homes for festive occasions. In her first book, Karolina shows how to create 15 classic and contemporary hanging decorations with wow factor and celebrates the rich heritage of this age-old folk art. Using colorful cutouts, pom-poms, paper flowers, and natural materials, Karolina explores the craft’s inspiring past and shares her passion for keeping the pajaki tradition alive today.

In the 2017 Elle Decoration trend issue, Pajaki chandeliers were championed as ’The Decoration’ must-have for your home, with Karolina’s creations taking centre stage. (Issue 294, February 2017)

As the artist responsible for its renaissance, Karolina’s is the authentic, authoritative voice on pajaki; her designs have been showcased in publications worldwide - including The World of Interiors and Harpers Bazaar - and showcased at key events such as London Design Week, Brussels Design and Lódz Design Festival.

Heralded as one of the hottest interior trends in recent years and perfect for seasonal/gift promotions (Christmas; Easter; weddings etc), these bright, modern mobiles can be made with humble supplies from any good craft store.

Karolina Merska is originally from Poland and moved to the UK in 2007 after obtaining an MA in History of Art at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Her work has been celebrated internationally and publicized by Channel 4, The World of Interiors, House and Garden, Elle Decoration, The Telegraph, Time Out, Harper’s Bazaar, and many more.
