Throughout 2011 knitting and crochet, formerly deemed as outdated and archaic forms of textile production, have featured heavily on the interior design scene. It seems that the younger generation, having been influenced by the current period of economic instability, are shunning mass manufactured products and opting to once again create products by hand.
This trend has filtered through to designers everywhere, who are keen to take an old art and give it a modern day twist, resulting in the array of unique, durable and lovingly hand-crafted products now available in the market.
Here are some ways to decorate your home with a bit of knit.
Designed by Dutch interior designer Ineke Visser at Heins Home, the seats on these perfectly proportioned stools are crocheted from robust wool and placed on top of wenge coloured or solid birch trunk legs.
Available in many colours including grey, ecru, green, blue, purple, rose and terracotta. Team it with a matching crochet rug for twice the impact.
Trust a Scandinavian company to know what to do when it’s cold, and layer-up with these inviting cushions and throws from Bynord. All made from a thickly braided wool that’s guaranteed to add an organic touch to your home.
