Winter may be coming to an end, but the thermometer is giving no clear indication of that happening. Let’s face it: it’s still cold out and I want to curl up with a chunky sweater near a fireplace. That’s why these crazy knitted stools and chair from Claire-Anne O’Brien are so appealing. Why curl up with a sweater when I can curl up on a sweater!?
Here are all the stools in different knits and colours. Made from a mix of lamb’s wool and sheep’s wool, I bet they are as soft as they look.
Just like a bulky sweater, I can’t resist the cosy neutrals. Doesn’t that texture make you want to run your hands all over it? Gorgeous.
Here’s a view from the top of the creamy rectangular stool. It’s beyond luscious.
Claire-Anne also designed a chair for British Wool Week. Could there be a sofa in the works?
She also has a nice blog filled with images of texture and upholstery inspiration. The Arrowroot cookie pillow that she posted makes me smile. Then again, most cookies will do that to me…
