Yep, thats right, I broke my promise. I'm a day late posting but hey that means todays post works for two days of #myhousethismonth... Charity shop find and natural tone. Thats ok right?! You might have seen over on stories that we have the grandparents (in law) coming for lunch and I suddenly remembered Waldo had destroyed the chair cushion! Emergancy fabric draw, stapler, 5 minutes and tada!
And here’s your official introduction (after a few sneaky-peeks along the way) to FLOWERBOMB, the 2nd of the Curramore Chair Company family.
It’s long been my dream to produce a range of high quality chairs utilising only premium materials and made to traditional standards of quality. I want to challenge the mass-produced products which dominate the market, and are destined for a short life and quick exit to landfill.
(The motto of Curramore Chair Co. - ‘Seats for Keeps’ - hopefully says it all about the long term future I intend for these chairs.)
Flowerbomb takes her name from the cover fabric (a 2018 release from @warwickfabrics ) which features a spectacular mass of olde-worlde flowers in the Dutch Old Masters style, printed on sumptuous black velvet (it FEELS beautiful!)
Now for sale - all details in the online shop (link above) and on display in the Jamberoo showroom.
One textile used for everything 🤤 I love the same white and blue bird pattern is used for everything in this old children's room. They even used i for wallpaper, but still had to stitch it together on a sewing machine, which you can see on the second picture. They also used it for curtains, bedding, and upholstery (which I guess is a more common use of textile lol) but I am impressed by how someone managed to find a textile working for so many different things! (bonus painting of angelic Dutch babies with mushroom-like hats)
Fall is in the air...ALWAYS, in this beauty of a living room! The russet tones of the velvet sofa and ottoman, coupled with an unexpected dusty merlot colored wall, creates a warm and inviting space that calls for curling up with your favorite throw blanket and a warm drink. Bring on the pumpkin spice lattes! ⠀⠀
