Our passion for creating block-printed fabric has led to us having pieces of furniture upholstered in our designs - from small nursing chairs to large Chesterfields. For some time, we've been collaborating with Amanda Luddington, a very talented local upholsterer who is equally passionate about her craft.
Having sourced a piece, it's often surprisingly easy deciding which fabric design and colour-way best suit - the style and age of the furniture dictate it.
While we block-print the required amount of fabric in our Bonfield workshop - we generally use natural, high quality linens - our upholsterer preps the piece in her studio, working in the traditional way. Natural materials including French horsehair, calico and metal tacks are always used; never modern, synthetic ones.
Once the block-printed textile is fixed and ironed, it is delivered to our upholsterer for her to finish the piece.
We add to the collection on a fairly regular basis, and all our one-off pieces can be viewed at our West Dorset workshop.
