Bococo is a brand that wowed me a few months ago, and the traditional Philippine craft that is practised for these cushions highlights the coming together of old time technique with modern design. They fit so perfectly into a Nordic interior, and I just love how detailed they are up close. With a diamond zig zag design, Anek Designs at Etsy creates a similar look with beautiful, intricate pattern. This particular embroidered style has evolved into further designs such as the use of zig zag print and other monochrome textile patterns like the grey & white zig-zag cushion by Hübsch. The Beach People creates beautiful beach rugs with abstract and repeating pattern, and recently found on A Merry Mishap, Berber rugs give an even more textured pattern for a softer space.

Weaving techniques become more blocky, and geometric designs that are usually seen within print, are achieved through weaving alone. The Kilim cushions by Ferm Living combine pastel shades for a textured but abstract overall design. The SS 15 collection elaborates on this even further, with Fragment cushions, taking the style one step further into an updated print equivalent. I like how H&M Home has created a two way, reversible pattern with a zig-zag weave blanket and House Doctor mirrors woven characteristics, with printed graphic lines upon a textured cotton pillow case. My favourite of them all though has to be the work of Beatrice Larkin, an emerging designer that I have only recently come across. It's clear to see that her Brights, Monochrome and Dusk collections have all been creatively strategised; with awareness to pattern, colour and the overall design. I love the unique lines, blocky layering and unusual shapes that she's managed to create - true weaving intelligence!
