I first saw these a year ago or so and thought - 'whoa! where do I get those?' Maybe they wouldn't fit into every home, but... if you wanna start conversation.... this'll do it for ya! I love them! I finally found the maker of these fab Alice-in-Wonderland-esque sofas: Lisa Whatmough, a former sculptor and painter, founded Squint in 2005, in London. She originally created a piece to showcase her antique fabric collection (more recycled ingenuity - I love it!), but found that the combination of period peices and vibrant fabrics created a whole new world of whimsy, and voila! So, I've found these pieces are a little out of my budget (sorry guys), and although you could get one at Barney's, New York, (I couldn't find a price in U.S. dollars, but they retail in the U.K. for at least 3000 pounds, so....) I mostly included these as an inspiration piece for an eco-DIY!. If you're tired of making quilts with left-over fabric (even though I adore quilts), try this with that awful chair everyone has sitting in their basement. I hope everyone gets a little inspired!
p.s If these are a little too bright for ya, use shades of cream, or grey.
Love this take on a vintage classic!
