I’m pleased to announce my collaboration with multi-award winning wallpaper and textiles designer, Abigail Borg, to unveil ‘The Botanical Collection’ – a three-piece range of cocktail chairs characterised by beautiful, illustrative botanical fabrics.
After being heavily influenced by some of the original painterly floral fabrics I uncovered whilst stripping down my vintage cocktail chairs, I realised how beautiful a more modern floral design could look. I decided that botanical illustrated designs would look fantastic, and Abigail’s stunning prints are the perfect fit for this style of chair. The colouring and style of her hand-drawn designs are so in keeping with the latest trend for floral prints, yet still hint back to the mid-century era.
The Hello Yarrow cocktail chair is wonderfully reminiscent of an enchanting summer meadow featuring a medley of Cornflowers, Skimmi and Yarrow set against a soft teal backdrop. Offering a fresh floral injection for any room, the creamier cocktail chair displays luxurious Laburnum tumbling around Rhododendrons and raspberry Pom-Pom Dahlias. Zesty accents come into play for the Polka Polka chair, sporting vibrant yellow piping and a bold Bougainvillea design trailing around Red Hot Polkas on a twilight black fabric.
This latest collaboration is both trendy and timeless, echoing our ability to modernise a classic chair with Abigail’s digitally printed fabrics – all whilst retaining the original wooden frame. The three botanical patterns are all printed in England on material made from 60% linen and 40% cotton.
The Botanical Cocktail Chairs are priced at £595.00 each and are now available to purchase online at www.florrieandbill.com
