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?
