Flora Dora House

Chelsea Cefai launched Flora Dora House this past May and the buzz is already in the air over her retro fabulous textiles, “It all began just over two years ago when I became the proud owner of more than 200 original patterns from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Until now the designs of Royal Academy artist Sheila Bownas have never been seen. I hope to breath new life into these beautiful patterns and create a unique source of inspiration for todays interior.” Her current collections from the 50’s and 60’s are very colorful, quirky and fun. I especially love seeing these prints on white Bertoia chairs.

I have a white Bertoia at home with an original gray leather seat cushion and I’m thinking to sew up a fabric cushion instead to give it some life… especially after seeing this photo below. If you don’t enjoying sewing though, you can always pick one up pre-made right here in her lovely shop or in her Etsy store. I love this homespun style and especially like adding quirky seat cushions to vintage chairs, stools, sofas, etc. Fun!
