Crafting A Pattern: The New Collection From Sheila Bownas

Four very British designer makers have come together with Chelsea Cefai of the Sheila Bownas Archive to launch an exclusive range of contemporary pieces for the home.

To commemorate what would have been Bownas’ 90th  year this collection draws upon the newly released pattern ‘West Riding’. It’s distinct structural lines reflect elements of the architecture in Linton and surrounding villages of North Yorkshire where Bownas lived and worked until her death in 2007.

Chelsea has worked closely with each designer, exploring materials and their creative skills to bring about something truly unique. The collection comprises - porcelain by Elisabeth Barry, fabric by Sarah Waterhouse, furniture by Parlour and lighting by Zoe Darlington.
