100% Design 2010

Here are a few images of my stand at 100% Design 2010, held at Earls Court in London.

This images shows my chaise-longue, designed by Darren Kelly of Staffordshire University, a throw and bolster cushion.

This shows the close up of the detail on the back of the chaise-longue.

This is the shelving unit, Darren designed to take a woven panel of the same fabric as the throw.

Here is another view of the stand.  The colour on the walls is a better match in this image.

Here is the screen that Darren designed to take my woven panels.  I can remove the panels and replace with another design for other shows.

Shortlisted for Northern Design Awards!

We have made the short list at the Northern Design Awards 2010
I've been shortlisted for Best Fabric Collection in the Northern Design Awards where Concept For Living magazine will bring together designers, retailers and property developers in a glittering celebration of the best in northern design, architecture and craftsmanship.

I'm delighted to have the opportunity to display my unique hand-woven products again, which include wall panels, cushions and window hangings in wool and linen.  Every single piece is hand woven using richly textured techniques with simple, effective designs and hope they will catch the eye of judges at the event, which will be held at Grosvenor Hotel and Spa, Chester, on Friday 8 October, 2010

Colour Palette of the Month - September

This month saw us taking a family break to the Yorkshire Dales and despite one day of inclement weather we managed to get in some really good walking.

While scrambling over a wall I spotted the lichen on one of the stones and as it was so gloomy and wet it was the gold that stood out.  Isn't strange how colour really pops out at you when it's dull, but on a bright day it can appear quite washed out!

So here's my colour palette for September, neutral greys and taupes with a bright zing of gold and fresh green.
