On behalf of Scottish Textiles, Traditional Home invited five top designers to travel to Scotland and tour the legendary textile mills. Each designer was asked to create a statement chair using an Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman frame and Scottish textiles in an innovative way. The designers had a panel discussion today about their experiences in Scotland. Each of them sat in their beautiful chairs as they discussed the trip and their unique designs. What a fun project to design a custom chair using these wonderful textiles!
Patrik Lönn created this fanback wingback chair in Timorous Beasties--Iguana in red. He spoke about all the legends of Scotland and how he thought of Loch Ness when he was designing his chair.
A very feminine looking chair by Anne Maxwell Foster. It is a Savoy chair in Holland & Sherry Labyrinth Ash, Labyrinth White and Pink Wool trim.
Tobi Fairley, of course, used lots of color. The use of the two fabrics is stunning. It is a Wellington Wing Chair using fabrics from The Isle Mill--Ailsa Pink and Wilton Stripe in charcoal.
And Philip Gorrivan used a Weston Club chair with fabrics from Duralee Highland Court--Roxbury in Heather and Cornwall Plaid in Nickel.
It was a pleasure to learn about these luxury textiles, how they are made and can be used.
