Wondering what to do with that ever growing fabric stash? Blogger Jenny Dixon had the very same dilemma until she discovered this fabulous cupboard in the basement of an antiques shop. A little love and a lick of paint later, and look what she created: a Cinderella cupboard of fabric wonder.
Now this is what we’re talking about! While searching for affordable fabrics for upholstery projects, we came across this fabulous sofa covered in material from Just Fabrics www.justfabrics.co.uk/furniture/sofas. The sofa itself is (unsurprisingly) no longer for sale, but what caught our eye was the mismatched yet complementary fabrics, and it got us thinking… why does everything have to be upholstered in matching fabric?
We’ve just heard that Danish designer Melanie Helbak www.storynorth.com has landed her vibrant earthenware designs here in the UK and they’ve got us all ‘fired’ up for getting handy with a paintbrush. Melanie’s simple, graphic designs are decorated by hand using a technique called ‘transfer printing’. We love how her pieces are shaped to fulfill several functions, allowing us to be creative with their use.
