i’m loving farrow & ball‘s latest campaign which encourages you to revive your old tired furniture pieces with a new lick of colour and upcycle bargain finds from charity shops and flea markets.
to demonstrate just how creative you can be, they have teamed up with nine british designers to craft bespoke items of painted furniture to help inspire you to break out the paint brushes and get slap happy yourself. from pretty florals, to geometrics and animal prints, their designs aim to inspire endless ideas to use at home.
i’m completely smitten with the stunning white geometry of nathan philpott & jemma ooi’s dresser, which is inspired by their ongoing interest in typography and bauhaus design theories. they looked to highlight the natural wood grain of the dresser as much as possible, and based their design around offsetting geometric shapes, looking at how the print changes as each drawer is opened and how your eye travels across and around the credenza. the final design is stunning, don’t you agree?
have you got any old pieces of unloved furniture languishing in a corner or up in the attic that could be given a new lease of life? perhaps one of these lovely visuals with help fuel your imagination…
