Wildwood Stool for Jay October 12, 2017 12:53


 Just completed is the Wildwood Stool!

A magical meeting of textile and furniture design.  The stool has been re-imagined by Carol for a project launching in the New Year for Jay - the resident upholsterer for the BBC's  Money for Nothing .

 Izzy Williamson linocut

 Izzy Rose Williamson is printmaker/designer based in Sheffield.  The original design for the fabric is a linocut which she cuts the image with a knife into a board which is then inked for printing.

'It is the largest linocut I have ever produced (A1 in size), and later became my textile design 'Wildwood' for @cocoonhome. Each print takes around 40 minutes to ink up and hand burnish (along with the weeks and weeks of carving!). I even do a little jolly dance on top to get a decent print! If you are interested in purchasing a print contact Izzy directly at isabelrosewilliamson@gmail.com.  £100 each or pre-order £80.

 Angela of Cocoon Home with Izzy

 Cocoon Home launched in September 2017 at Decorex International.  Run by Angela Constantinou,(on the left and Izzy on the right) ,  Cocoon Home began its life with ten new textiles designs, with each artist producing work that is distinctive from the other.  

Wildwood is printed to order in Lancashire on either a linen/cotton mix or cotton satin base, supporting British manufacture and minimising the ecological footprint.

It comes in 3 colourways and retails at £60 a metre.  But take advantage of a 20% discount here.
