Funky Patchwork Furniture

Funky Patchwork Furniture

Patchwork is most often associated with quilts. Once a craft born out of economic necessity, patchwork quilts still enjoy widespread popularity. However, British designer Lisa Whatmough whose company is Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique not for familar bedcoverings but as upholstery material for her fun and funky bespoke furniture line. Just one of her chic furniture pieces will brighten up any dark corner. These are extraordinarily vivid focal pieces indeed.

The best way she found to showcase the fabrics from her antique textile collection was to combine them with period furniture. By mixing her vintage stash with contemporary fabric, her colorful upholstered furniture pieces have fused into truly one of a kind designs. The types of furniture ranges from chaise longues to footstools, cabinets and all types of chairs. Her accessory line also includes patchwork lampshades, bedheads and cushions.

The furniture is painstakingly upholstered the traditional way using tied springs and hand stitched seams. Due to the range of textiles used for each design, prices vary. Squint Limited sells internationally through several outlets. Via

    Oh, what I’d give to own a Squint piece! Sadly, starting about around 3000 British pounds for a chair….but, someday! I’d love to have one of their ottomans!
