It was only a matter of time before someone like Kelly Swallow came along with a plethora of patchwork furniture to offer. Considering that quilt patterns and finishes were particularly popular last year, it is only a natural progression to patchwork, if you ask me.

Yet Kelly Swallow's armchairs, loungers and sofas are pretty unique. Although they have a rather traditional air, she has made it her mission to introduce a modern flair as well. Using vintage fabrics from an assortment of designers like Guild, Kenzo, Zoffany, Carlucci and Harlequin, she also uses other retro hipster materials such as rugby player’s jerseys.

Fun and playful, Kelly Swallow also tailors to sentiments and memories by taking custom orders. She and her company are based in the United Kingdom.
