Designer Donna Wilson [1] mixes classic styling with quirky, colorful, hand-woven textiles to create fresh contempory pieces that are anything but old-fashioned. Her Eadie [2] eco armchair replaces the use of petrochemicals with a combination of natural fibers such as horse hair and wool for the upholstering. Designed for SCP [3], the chair comes with a wide range of coverings to choose from, but we’re partial to the eye-catching pattern shown above, which is green in more ways than one.

Wilson’s Eadie [2] chair is constructed with a solid beech and plywood frame wrapped with hessian straps and jute webbing to create a solid and comfortable chair. The armchair was launched during the 2009 London Design Festival [4] in celebration of British furniture at Liberty’s ‘Britain Can Still Make it’ exhibition, which showcased some of the country’s best designers.
