If you or someone you know knits, then you're aware of how much work goes into a single piece, so just imagine the sheer level of craftsmanship that Claire-Anne O’Brien puts into all of her designs. Using exquisitely knitted fabrics to cover home decor pieces like stools and seats, the final work that O'Brien creates is cozy and definitely one-of-a-kind.

Born in Ireland, the textile designer resides in East London and produces her sumptuous goods by hand. She graduated from the prestigious Central Saint Martins in 2006 with a BA in Textiles and has gone on to complete her Masters in Knitted Textiles from the Royal College of Art.

O'Brien's work has received a nod from several discerning design enthusiasts and it's clear that she'll continue to turn heads with her designs for a long time yet.
