Posh Patchwork Furniture

Former sculptor and painter Lisa Whatmough, creates colorful furniture pieces by fusing antique textiles and period furniture together. Having amassed a substantial amount of textiles over the years, Lisa was looking for a way to showcase her collection of fabrics when the inspiration for her patchwork furniture was born. Her company, Squint in East London, now makes one of a kind pieces using high quality vintage fabrics and old school upholstery techniques to order.

Vibrant odds and ends make this sofa the centerpiece of the room.

The iconic Egg chair gets a motley makeover from the good folks at Squint.
