Inspiring images that will transform your space.
When you look carefully at the intricately patterned wall art from Harvey Lynch, you’ll realize that it’s actually just...words. Harvey Lynch's co-founder, Brian O'Hara, picks words and sayings he finds particularly insightful and compelling, such as “love,” “I am enough” and “know thyself,” or quotes from inspirational figures like Buddha, Socrates, Ram Das, and Winston Churchill. O’Hara, whose background is in fashion and set design, works closely and creatively with his wife, co-founder Melanie Currie O’Hara (both pictured in slideshow, left). They donate a portion of profits for the word art to the Seva Foundation, a charity devoted to helping preserve and restore sight around the world.
