Product spotlight. Fortune favours Corita Rose – bold, bright and British.

Good to see all the nationally themed areas at ICFF last weekend. The Spanish had their tiles, the Germans had their precision, their engineering and, er, cars, and the Brits had  elegantly articulated creativity by the the wheelbarrow load. And we think we spotted more than a little  nervousness in the face of vastness and aggression of the American market.

We will be doing a round up of our favourite Brits at ICFF but, in the meantime, bright and bold Dorset based  Corita Rose warrant a post of their own.

Corita Rose sofa

Corita Rose are only making 25 of these sofas so you may have to fight us for one. Set up just last year, they specialise in printing upholstery quality cotton velvets. This is their surprisingly durable Amor Sofa. Apart from being dragged halfway across the world, the sofa we saw at ICFF had served time in founder Caroline Ritchie’s own home and survived her family and children without visible damage or fading of those vibrant colours. Incidentally, the cushions are all reversible for minor mood adjustments, but be prepared, the mood is always bold. They are more than happy to ship to the States, Europe or elsewhere.

For State-side lovers of bright, bold design who are nervous about shipping furniture, Cortin Rose fabrics may be a good option. Look at these,

Corita Rose Fortune favours the Brave

Yup, Fortune favours the Brave indeed. And we defy anyone to walk past  and ignore these curtains, again, printed on silk. And finally from Cortina Rose, still quirky but, for them, almost understated,

Corita Rose pillows

Reversible pillows, they call them cushions, but lets not get into that right now, in two sizes, 40 cm and 60 cm square. Available in many colour combinations. Lovely.

    Very bright! But might work – depending on the client. It’s best used for eclectic people with eclectic tasts that would love a room full of color!

    They are def great looking!

    I know how you feel. ICFF was great and interesting and everything and then I saw this guy. Only does about 20 sofas a year but the whole thing made me smile and then sleep. The fabric is ridiculously soft :)
