MY STORY & PHILOSOPHY
I am a Lisbon based designer with a love of natural, neutral design and textiles. My love of sourcing traditional and handmade fabrics from around the world has culminated in me opening my online Cushion Studio, where I use remains of fabric from my work as a designer and transform them into beautiful cushions for your home.
Having always been inspired by design and interiors, I chose to take a different path in my career and worked in Management for several years. But following a life changing diagnosis, I realised that creativity is at my core, and using my hands to create is what makes me feel alive. I made the transition to train as an Interior Designer and have never looked back.
It is during my training that I realised what really gives someone's home that feeling of cosiness and personality is the texture in the soft furnishings that finish a room. Sometimes unable to find exactly what I was looking for, I decided to start making my own cushions. I often had offcuts of beautiful fabric which I did not want to throw away, so in the of spirit of sustainability I chose to repurpose my ends of rolls into new beautiful creations. I am also always looking to source new independent artisans who create and design fabrics to use for my collection.
As I grow I am looking to stock my cushions in local shops and further afield, as well as work with other Interior Designers on trade enquiries. If you are interested in stocking any of my cushions or working together on custom sizes or designs, please get in touch via my contact page. I would love to hear from you.
