From Here to Timbuktu

Well, it didn't take long to build inspiration for my latest acquisition. Prior to our move I purchased a vintage leather Chesterfield with the most incredible yellow-green patina. The sofa's deep quilted tufting is offset with a single down-filled cushion, which I'd love to reupholster in John Robshaw's Lanka Oyster. The tiny blockprint would be the ultimate compliment to oversized pillows made from my Timbuktu fabric. And because this mini-project would then open Pandora's box, it would be a shame to just stop there.


Clockwise: [1] Timbuktu Pillow; [2] Andrew Martin's Timbuktu in Rust; [3] "Leigh" Bottle Cap Portrait; [4] Ink Dhurrie; [5] Casablanca Lantern; [6] Western Kingdom Lantern; [7] Fluted Pendant Lamp; [8] Vintage Chesterfield Sofa; [9] John Derian Geranium Sofa upholstered in John Robshaw Lanka Oyster; [10] Rope Knot Doorstop; [11] Nautical Stripe Dhurrie.
