The 'Indigo Bench' from JamesPlumb Makes Use of Antique Textiles

When designing the 'Indigo Bench,' the creatives at JamesPlumb considered the wide-ranging history of a specific textile and the meaning behind it.

The studio explained the uniqueness of Burnished Indigo fabric by saying "It’s bruised by hand, soaked, parched, closed, opened, attacked and rested; a beautiful, intriguing new chapter for a very old, almost ancient, thread. The bench is an assemblage using the cloth. A dual personality."

The quality of the material is evident right away when one looks at the Indigo Bench, with the slight imperfections that decorate it giving it more depth and personality. In order to make its use of it clear, JamesPlumb styled the furniture piece in a series of promotional images with more of the Burnished Indigo fabric over top.
