The textile designer Josef Frank is such an inspiration, so whenever in Stockholm I always visit Svenskt Tenn, which houses his highly creative work. Most of the designs are floral patterns, which although over fifty years old they still look bold, fresh and very contemporary. I love the way some designs have been applied in a new way for example on a chair or tea-towels. I dreamt of using his fabric, in particular his ‘Windows’ design comprising of common houseplants. So for Flower & Fauna I made the bold move to have re-upholstered a Danish mid-century chair, now available in the shop or online. When this beautiful chair goes to a lovely new home I will have to be content with my tea cosy.
