Learning what to take and what to leave behind in my daily travels is proving to be an artform. A sad stool by itself doesn’t always stand out, but if, somewhere along the line, another piece presents itself as a fitting partner, I will kick myself for not taking a gamble. It’s a bit like playing ‘memory’ over the course of years…
Stampy was an early birthday present, so for the actual birthday, I scored a surprise commission for a pair of throw pillows. These cushions are pieced in velvet scraps from the couch, and feature a fantastic quality print on poly-canvas.
Cuadro and Gio combine the best elements of many, many designs. They’re wider than normal, so you don’t have that ‘sardine’ feeling, and they’ve got arm rests so you won’t get tired from holding your book up all by yourself. Those arm rests can also balance a glass of wine. The back racking system allows for 3 degrees of comfort and greater stability than your usual Bunnings number too.
The Pantones had been through several lives in shades of laquer and pantone when they arrived at my door. The pair hold particular nostalgic value for their dad, having belonged to his Grandmother when he was little, but needed some love and attention to fit in with his new home
Sure, we could have gone the easy route and made some scatter cushions, or just sewn a box cushion as a feature for an other wise plain arm chair, but where would have been the fun in that? It’s much more interesting to follow a line from top to toe over 4 planes and make each one meet smoothly.
