The hygge:liv cushions feature the highest quality, unused fabrics that will add colour, excitement, warmth and texture to any home, from the living room, bedroom, children’s spaces, a study or even outside.
The eclectic and unique collection is designed and developed in a sustainable and socially responsible way, with each cushion made from unused fabric and is handmade locally. The result is a range of incredibly special, luxe one-of-a-kind designs.
Here, Catherine reflects on her process when designing a collection, her everyday inspiration and her feelings on working with unused fabrics.
Can you tell us a little bit about you?
I currently live by the beach but at heart still, love an urban lifestyle. I’ve always worked around fashion and homewares. My passion is homeware especially cushions, always has been.
What was your design process with this collection?
We arranged our collections into 4 categories, coastal, travel, botanical and monochrome. We then collected all our unused fabrics and paired up fronts, backs and trims that complimented each other.
Is there anything specific to where you live that inspires you to create?
Living by the ocean is a huge creative influence, the colours, the textures and the general coastal environment. I find walking the beach and finding little treasures inspires me greatly.
What does your creative process look like?
We place all our fabrics into complementary colourways and start the design process from there. We then pair them with backs that create a unique and eclectic design.
What is the most fun you’ve had with putting fabrics together in this collection?
When my business partner Erin came back from New York City with stunning unused fabrics that we could work with to create beautiful one-of-a-kind cushions. It is truly rewarding to know we are creating whilst reducing landfill.
What is your vision of the textile industry in 50 years?
I am hoping and have complete confidence that fast fashion will be a thing of the past and sustainability will be the new leader. We have no choice but to head in this direction to save our planet.
