Our passion for creating block-printed textiles has steered us towards offering 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.
Whilst 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 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 so she can complete the job.
Our furniture offering increasingly features pieces upholstered in our beautiful hand-printed linens. Please see ‘Hand-printed linen by the metre’ on the scrolling Products menu.
We add to the collection on a fairly regular basis. Pieces can be viewed via our Instagram feed and in the flesh at our West Dorset workshop by appointment only. All are highly individual one-offs.
