Objects of Design: Graphic Textiles by Flock


I don’t often look at textiles, for reasons which I can’t entirely fathom, but every now and then along comes a really interesting collection couple with really great images and I feel it’s right to show you.


Flock, founded by Jenny Wingfield and Johanna Williams, works with recent graduate designers to create new designs and they each receive a royalty for every metre of fabric sold.


These gorgeous pictures were taken by Yeshen Venema, who was also responsible for the new look of the blog as well as my other site (personal shopping and styling for interiors) Mad About Your House


The gorgeous graphic designs above were created by Lucy Rainbow and Angela Johnston and cost £70 a metre in Linen.


The lampshade in the top picture is the work of Cerys Ackland. Obsessed with computers, she wanted to marry the digital world to the textile and it makes a rather cool design.


Lucy Rainbow has a passion for mid-century design and her textiles are all inspired by the clean lines and simple graphic patterns of that aesthetic. You can see more of Flock’s products by clicking on the link and can also visit the website of each design by following the links.

  1. very nice, I love the upholstered chair, gorgeous!
    Can I ask you a favour, Kate? Can you look into creating a Pin It button on your photos, please. Your content is always so ‘pinnable’ and that would make Pin-life easier 😉 thanks!
