Georgia Bosson + Elizabeth Rose II

My collaboration with Elizabeth Rose began with a chance encounter on Instagram. Having spotted one of the samples that I had made for the White Company she got in touch to discuss the possibility of creating a one off chair using a similar process.

For this project I was keen to work with the factory who have supplied my felt skeletons for the past three years and it felt like the perfect opportunity to have my own washers cut for the first time and see what I could come up with when working with one shape in repetition.

The final design was inspired by a drawing of fishing nets and the undulating texture that appears when they are bundled together. I wanted to ensure that some of the plain wool fabric visible in the final design so that the flow of the stitching could be fully appreciated.

One of the joys of this chair is from the front it is relatively simple and discreet, it only reveals it's true nature when seen in 360 degrees. It is only then that you can appreciate the flow of the design and the three dimensional nature of the felt.

This chair is truly unique, so if you are interested in buying it for your home please check out the product listing on Elizabeth's website. Alternatively if you would like to commission something similar, perhaps you have a chair that needs a new lease of life or you would like us to source you your own unique chair please get in touch and we will be happy to help. 

I also have all of the skeletons from the cut out washers so watch this space for some limited edition cushions coming soon!
