Thanks very much to Barbara Chandler from the Evening Standard for featuring Body Lace voile in her round up of Valentine's Homewares. Read the full article here.
A clutch of UK female designers are celebrating sexuality with a passion, beauty and wit that will bring romance into your home on Valentine’s Day and beyond.
In Islington today, a saucy “nude net curtain” is currently raising eyebrows at The Surface Design Show.
Show this page for free admission until 9pm tonight, and 5pm tomorrow.
It’s a collaboration between furnishing entrepreneur Charlotte Raffo of new brand Monkey Puzzle Tree and artist Sarah Jane Palmer, whose erotic drawings are known for their visual tricks.
On a visit to Palmer’s London studio, Raffo spotted a sketch of lovers in an erotic embrace inspired by a 5th century Greek plate.
The artist’s great great grandfather was a Nottingham Lace designer, and this was her amatory update. Raffo made this happen.
She tracked down a heritage print works in Lancaster, whose “burn-out” technique partly dissolves fibres in a fabric leaving transparent areas, for a lace effect.
Body Lace voile is in nude or a limited edition black, in a viscose/polyester mix, at £78 a metre.
“Nets are intended to hide and obscure,” says Palmer. “And mine have an extra layer of concealment, as you probably won’t spot the erotic imagery at first glance.”
Inspiration, new designs and behind the scenes with our artists every fortnight.
We won't pass your details onto anyone else.
