Design Festival Poster.jpg
English designer (and my friend!) Lisa Whatmough,
owner of the fabulous London furniture company ....... 
was asked by the London Transport Museum 
to create this divine bespoke sofa ....... 
to be used on the posters that appeared in the Underground Tube stations 
during the London Design Festival!!!!!

Made from the famous "moquette" fabric, 
which has been used to upholster seating across the 
London Transport system for over 100 years.

Lisa incorporated some of the most iconic patterns,
including the bold District Line pattern 
designed by Misha Black in 1978 ...
and the Green Line moquette.

In addition, Lisa created a bespoke chair that was auctioned-off
at the Tent London design exhibition last week.

Surrounded by loads of people trying to "win" the chair ......
it was almost impossible to get it's picture!!!!
But, here it is!!!
Wish I'd won it ......... don't you!!!

Lots of news about the fantastic collection of "revisited" furniture that I had made by in London ...... Squint for j.roaman is featured in the trend section of the November issue of House Beautiful and on the updated j.roaman website.

 

The furniture is a combination of vintage, gently-used, and reclaimed silhouettes of English furniture..... all re-upholstered by hand, in a variety of vintage and new damasks, velvets, silks, quiltings, and French tickings. The eclectic, "bespoke" collection includes couches, chairs, chaises, mirrors, ottomans, and light fixtures....all in excellent condition. Each unique piece knows divine secrets..... and if it could talk would tell exciting and interesting tales!!! 

 

The collection is an "accessorator's" dream....actually it was this "accessorator's" dream!!!!!!!!!!!!
