A new Irish label ‘a weekend out west’ specialising in beautifully Made, large, comfy cushions and blankets. “I have always admired the skill of textile design incorporated into product design. Last Summer I began learning about soft furnishings and began the journey of making some oversize cushions and blankets. I am from the west and travel west regularly for mini surfing trips. Camping, vanlife and lounging as the sun sets are sometimes the best memories after a weekend away. I’m also renovating my home and searched for design Made in Ireland but found myself feeling like there was a lack of design that spoke to me. I want to create comfort and contemporary colour combinations to relax around. With this new range, my aim is to make items that are as happy on your sofa or on the floor in front of a movie as they are on the road for your next adventure. Bold geometric designs and contemporary colour combinations are the signature style, one that is very easy to live with. Developed with Swedish designer maker Maria Tapper and Dublin crafter Dee Harte, I have designed the cushions to be durable and with a high attention to detail, both inside and out. Quality soft on the skin cotton, funky zip detailing with a piping border and a generous 65x65cm size make it a piece of Irish design that you will want to keep for years. Playing with colours and shapes, I have created these cushions to add to your relaxing, chatting, sleeping and dreamtime. A quilt design currently compliments the range.
