#Sofacrush: Rajasthani embroidered furniture

two-seater-sofa-covered-in-old-embroideries-2-of-3

Having total #sofacrush. Upholstered with Indian Rajasthani embroidered fabrics (which you normally see in home furnishings like wall-hangings), it’s the kind of two seater that drinking red wine on is most definitely banned. A work of art in every way, it’s a sofa that’s guaranteed to be the focal point of your room, whether you choose to place it in your living room, bedroom or office.

What’s more, it’s not just  interiors eye candy: it’s furniture with a conscious. Made by a company based in Jaipur, they used old recycled embroideries and employ 50 workers (men and women) in fair trade conditions. Workers are provided with medical insurance and free meals and there are environmental measures such as rainwater harvesting, recycling and plans for a company solar power plant. Order yours from Ian Snow, our new favourite online store (£1479.)
