Wingback upholstered with Josef Frank textile
Pinned this one a long time ago. Learned via Love Megan the upholstery is Josef Frank linen (Textile La Plata 315 Linen) still available through Svenskt Tenn.

Vintage Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair In Original Bluish Leather
I had the intention to feature at least 60 blue chairs this month. I’ve managed to feature 52. Not very bad in view of the fact that a lot of time went in to repairing the lost links to lost images that happened last month…
Blue Selvedge by Raw Edges
The warp and woof threads arrangement allowed Yael and Shay to unravel and release threads from within the woven fabric, creating a hollow sleeve inside its surface. The designers then placed two layers in different colours on top of each other and re-stitched them together using transparent plastic strip. As a result, a colourful rim had appeared from the other layer, reminiscent of the selvedge that can be found as the hem of raw fabrics. Usually only found decorating the edges of a textile while on the roll, the selvedge is generally cut from the fabric and not part of an end product. In this project Raw Edges is celebrating it, and have used the linear elements of the fabric to dictate the form of an armchair. The fabric is stretched to the structure of the armchair by these newfound “unravelling parts”.
