An intrepid exploration into the lovely depths of knits and weaves. Designer Henry Sgourakis takes the patterns in weaves and knits of the Arts and Crafts period, past and present. My aunts live in a house filled with Arts and Crafts books, furniture, and nicks and nacks from all over the country, especially up in our corner of the United States – Midwest – Minnesota. And this lovely bit of furniture would be a wild, super addition to their world.
Inspired in particular by those doilies commonly considered cheap and tacky. These pieces aim to take that tradition which went wayward and bring the gorgeousness of it into some nice furniture items. The unique flexible webbing molds to the body, moving back to it’s original form when not in use.
That’s a nice comfort to sit, a unique furniture shape with noone relaxing.
