Knitted Stools

30 Jan

From time to time, I love to go online an find new stuff that I love. My current favorite site is Design Milk. Just (10 min ago) found these stools on the page and I just love them! Don´t you?

The patterns and the depths is just fascinating to me! These knit stools were created by the British textile Designer Claire-Anne O´Brien. She basically created old-fashioned stools, with a modern twist. I mean i´ve seen a number of knitted stools, but NOT like this!

I did not know knitting could be so fresh and modern!

“The effect invokes depth and texture with an overall playful sensibility. The variety of bright colors and chunky patterns makes it really hard to choose a favorite. What a clever way of taking knitting to a whole new level.”  quoted from: Design Milk Article
