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:
