wood and wool stool

I just came across this and wanted to post it straight away... I love how inventive people are being with things from the past...bringing woolen crochet  squares together with recycled wooden stools.

This image was posted on 12th July on Norskstil.blog Curious to see more I clicked on wood & wool stool which took me to a website for these colourful stools produced by Ingrid Jansen. Love the look and the appeal of these colourful and practical seats... perhaps not quite perfect for our warm climate here.However I can just see them in a cosy cafe...and I'd be very happy to have one of these for my home!!

Thanks for visiting and leaving a thought Eleni. I just went across to you blog to see what you are up to and saw the workshop you attended which a friend also went to and found very inspiring! I love the way there are so many ways to create a more viable Eco-Future pathway...really it is about stopping our habits of blase consumption and seeing ways to make and invent or support others who do this!
best,
Sophie
