The Royal Horticultural Society has announced its second collaboration with Sofas & Stuff, a creator of British bespoke sofas, chairs, beds, footstools and more.
The partnership will see a new set of RHS-inspired designs adapted for fabrics that can be used across any of the Sofas & Stuff range of British handmade sofas, chairs, beds, footstools and cushions – or purchased as fabrics for curtains and blinds or other soft furnishing projects.
The RHS 23 Fabric Collection is again based on the range of assets available to RHS licensees from the RHS Lindley Collections. This time, however, it takes much of its inspiration from one source: the “Designs for Carving” scrapbook by artist, gardener, garden designer and craftswoman, Gertrude Jekyll. The work contains sketches of gardening subjects and architectural features spanning 45 years of the life of this brilliant and influential figure.
The RHS 23 Fabric Collection will launch at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, London, from May 22 through May 27. It will then be available to purchase exclusively through Sofas & Stuff, both in-store at the company’s 23 showrooms across England and Scotland and online.
“The success of the RHS 22 Fabric Collection has inspired us once again to adapt for our fabrics some of the extraordinary botanical art the RHS makes available to its licensees,” says Andrew Cussins, founder, Sofas & Stuff. “Gertrude Jekyll’s position as one of the most influential and admired garden designers has made her a wonderful choice for this new collaboration, which we are sure will again be enthusiastically received by both homeowners and lovers of fine British craftsmanship.”
“The combination of great gardening art and design with the skill and commitment to excellence of the Sofas & Stuff craftspeople has again produced some glorious and unique fabric designs,” says Cathy Snow, licensing manager, RHS. “The fine quality and stunning fabrics that lie at the very heart of Sofas & Stuff’s work have yet again taken inspiration from RHS Lindley Collections art to extraordinary effect.”
