"When we started looking into the catalogue of work at The British Museum, we were immediately drawn to Mary Delany's stunning paper mosaics.

"Their black background reveals the delicate intensity of the flowers and the handicraft is incredible. Poetic and mysterious, Delany's artwork is still relevant today and with this collaboration, look beautiful in any modern home," explained Guillaume Vaillant, concept designer at H&M Home.

Boxed scented candle, €14.99

A 'late-bloomer', Mary, who lived in England and in Dublin in Ireland throughout her life (married to Irish cleric Patrick Delany), and first began painting floral collages at the age of 72. She invented a form of paper-cutting or decoupage, which she called her "paper mosaiks" and created 985 of these.
