Grant Featherston

Grant Featherston (1922-1995) is another Australian design icon I would like to share with you. What Hans Wegner is to mid century devotees in America, Grant Featherston is to Australians. Devoted to promoting a philosophy of good design and opposing the stifling forces of conservatism with an alternative to the overstuffed post-war sofas Grant Featherston gained success in the 1950s with his clean organic designs. The now famous contour chair can still be found in homes as well as fashionable design stores and museum collections.

Passementerie

Passementerie, the decorative use of trims made from gimp, cord, beads, braids, etc. Sounds simple doesn't it. Not when you linger over these images from Spina Design. In their own words "A vibrant and dynamic duo, who have revolutionised the perception of accessories and the detailing in interior design. Using radically different mixtures of hard and soft materials together, they add precious materials and objects to their designs, not seen before in the accessory world. They have revived the ancient craft of passementerie to a new level gaining the respect as a new art form." Their work is a feast for the eyes.
