We are currently looking at design history in my course, one of the best ways to understand how design has changed over the years is to look at the history of the chair. Todays lecture saw me daydreaming about one day owning an original Grant Featherston like the ones in the images above. These designs are my absolute favourites and are definitely on my wish list. Addvintage currently have a Featherston similar to the top one for sale in the store (needs new upholstery) ...... I always look at it when I go in and dream that one day I will also own an original!
Hello .... My name is Michelle, welcome to my blog. I am an artist and serial home renovator living in Brisbane, Australia. I enjoy looking for treasures in op-shops and antique stores, and have a love of modern interiors with a mid century modern, or vintage/retro vibe. This site is about my life, my love of designing, and the creation of my paper art.
I am currently studying interior design so part of my blog serves as a place to hold my growing collection of "interior inspirations".
Thank you for visiting. I would be delighted if you took the time to leave a comment.

Each of my designs are taken mainly from exquisitely illustrated 1950's/60's/70's books. Most of these books are sourced from op-shops and, having been loved by others, are often damaged in some way. My art brings stories to life setting free beautiful illustrations that may otherwise remain shelved and unread.
