The pea is everywhere, monochrome or multicolored, on our tables, our textiles, our furniture, no one escapes it! "We always need a pea at home," said an advertisement in the 70s. And it's still true, as they appear without modesty in our homes. Playful and joyful, the pea in the form of a decorative motif is now available in all sauces. In the 1950s version, small and discreet, a bit old-fashioned but full of charm, or on the contrary very "seventies", frankly extroverted, in larger format and devilishly colored. With very tight peas, or vice versa very spaced, the possibilities are endless and the most creative will have fun mixing young and old for a recreational decoration. Plain or multicolored, it has its fans. The professionals have understood this and offer us a festival. The pea is also the motif that the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama uses as the sole subject of study of her work: she exhibited last summer giant balloons hanging or placed on the ground, decorated with peas, under the title "Dots Obsession" , at the Grande-Halle de La Villette, in Paris; enough to reassure you of the importance of this very ancient motif. Finally last asset, the pea is never taken seriously, it is synonymous with cheerfulness. After having been shunned for a long time, condemned to children's bedrooms, he was cheerful and dapper again, ready for all excesses.
