I was delighted to see Mitchell Black Home featured in the February’s “Most Wanted” column of W Magazine. Mitchell Pennell is the creative force behind the company.  Designers are always on the hunt for wall decor and it has become increasingly difficult to find items that are affordable, well made, and unique in concept. When we saw his work at High Point last fall, it was certainly a site for sore eyes. He takes historical etchings, re-scales and re-colors the images, and then frames them in acrylic for a new twist on an old form.
Mitchell has an extensive library of etchings that range from the 16th to the 19th century. He can do the images in 15 different sizes and 17 different colors. The formats can also be offset to take on a more contemporary feel. In his booth, he showed a variety of ways that the works could be displayed.
Here is Mitchell standing in front of “Chevalier” printed in a brilliant peacock blue.
His horse etching cast in various shades is perfect for the equestrian

Various beetles and bugs in multi-colored hues would be perfect

In addition to these wonderful works of art for your wall, Mitchell also creates the most EXQUISITE letterpress stationary. All of the motifs are available and the above image shows how the backside of the paper matches the ink of the letterpress image.

The images can also be used on his tabletop line. Be sure to check out his website to see the various shapes, sizes and placement. The possibilities are infinite with his creative mind and the tools of his trade.

Congratulations Mitchell on some very well-deserved press!
