Chocolate Creative {Handmade Pillows}

January 15, 2009

You know I just had to do it… what is decor8 without a few throw cushions? Margarita Lorenzo, a textile designer from London, wrote this morning to introduce her brand Chocolate Creative. I instantly fell for the furniture pillow in blue as I can see it lounging gracefully on a sofa like this from Oly. Her handmade collection begins with sketching the pattern to silkscreen printing and then sewing which makes each pillow a unique creation, truly one of a kind.

Margarita enjoys working mostly with ecologically sound hemp and organic cotton which is obviously a smart choice for the environment. She currently draws inspiration from antiques, cherished belongings, and furniture which you will see reflected throughout her line. I really like things with a bohemian feel, it seems London has quite a pool of amazingly gifted independant designers who do as well. Lovely!

With the Pound to U.S. Dollar conversion rate being extremely favorable right now, why not?

    Pillows are such great room accents. I have a few that I love but they have seen better days. It might be time to say good bye, sadly, but these are beautiful. I also love pillows by John Robshaw. Ok, now I can’t wait to go shopping!!
