British online art print destination Claude & Leighton® wants to help people express more love and romance with its new collection of romantic art prints. In these difficult and worrying times, with people being confined to their homes, and having to stay apart from loved ones, the husband and wife duo behind Claude & Leighton feels that expressions and reminders of love and caring are more important than ever.
Claude & Leighton® is an online destination for high-quality, contemporary art prints, posters and wall decor. From abstracts and landscapes; portraits and animal art; to fine art photography and typography, Claude & Leighton offers prints in a variety of genres, to enable people to enhance their homes and offices with expressions of style and personality.
Founded in 2020 by husband and wife team Laurent Stadelmann and Jayne Leighton Herd, Claude & Leighton is based in Berkshire, England. Jayne, a professional artist & designer with over 15 years of experience in selling her statement original paintings, and Laurent, an experienced businessman, created Claude & Leighton together to be the home for Jayne’s other extensive art and design creations.
Waving a “made in Britain” flag with pride, all art, prints and posters are created and produced in the UK to the highest quality from Claude & Leighton’s own print studio. Then carefully packed in gift-ready, British-made, eco-friendly packaging.
The art print collection includes typography posters with romantic phrases in French, as well as English, lovely abstract designs, and dreamy botanical prints.
Ideas for the French language prints were influenced by Claude & Leighton co-founder Laurent Stadelmann, who was born in France.
“The French language is perceived as musical and harmonious. Words often sound a little more romantic or exotic in French. I wanted to create fun, contemporary typography posters that will add a little sprinkle of French amour to homes and love nests.”
Some of the prints in the collection also reflect the times that we are living in, and the obligation for some relationships to be conducted at a distance.
Jayne Leighton Herd, artist, designer and co-founder of Claude & Leighton, explains:
“Many people cannot spend time with their loved ones at present, or are having “socially-distanced” romances. Although for a different reason, Laurent and I experienced the challenges of a long-distance relationship when we first got together. So we understand how hard that is. We would send each other lots of little notes, letters and drawings to pin on our walls and help us stay strong and feel loved. So some of our new art prints, and the phrases that we use in them, not only reflect current reality, but also resonate strongly with our own story.”
Available in various sizes, each print in the collection is produced by Claude & Leighton, with high quality, fade-resistant inks on premium heavyweight, archival paper. Prices start at £18 for an A4 print.
With arguably the most romantic day of the year approaching, these prints make a perfect Valentine’s gift for a special someone. Or a lovely way to show loved ones that they are thought of and missed.
