Anthropologie just announced a new line of 40 furniture and decor pieces all featuring the unique patterns of French textile designer Paule Marrot — a true trailblazer.

Marrot, who lived and worked in France until her death in 1987, was well-known for her bold textile designs, most of which centered around flora and fauna. Her clients included Jackie Kennedy and the British Royal Family, and she was even awarded a Legion of Honour for her colorful, upbeat patterns.

Now, you can add a touch of the designer's fantastical style to your own home, thanks to Anthropologie's new collection, which includes everything from stationery to sofas to bedding. Here are a few pieces that we think capture the renowned designer's effortless style:

1. Paule Marrot Parrot Wallpaper, $148 per roll

This whimsical wallpaper features a green parrot on a decidedly millennial pink backdrop, proving that Marrot was ahead of her time.

2. Paule Marrot Francaise Dessert Plate, $14

These rustic dessert plates feature playful garden-inspired patterns.

3. Paule Marrot Camilla Euro Sham, $46.40

A classic pink sham gets updated with a chic green motif.

4. Paule Marrot Greenery Padfolio, $28

If you want a small touch of Marrot's influence to liven up your desk each day, this padfolio seems like a great pick.

5. Paule Marrot Bowen Chair, $1,198

Ready to commit to Marrot in a big way? This minimalist lime armchair would look great in an all-white living room.
