Fabulous Fabric Friday: Florence Broadhurst

When it comes to furnishing fabrics, there are few designers that are more timeless than Florence Broadhurst.  She’s Australian, too!

I can’t recommend enough the value of keeping an eye on ebay for people selling remnants from recovering jobs, or bigger household projects.   I’ve been able to gather several metres of gorgeous prints from doing so.

Here’s my all time favourites:2014-06-25 08.13.05

The second one is a really large print (it might be hard to tell from this photo, but each flower is about 40cm across).

Her brights are really good too.  Here, I’ve covered a corkboard in her fabric and now it is a really special piece.

Here’s a serving tray I covered in Florence fabric too:

(See this post on how to cover a tray with fabric.  It’s such an easy, fun, useful project!)

Needless to say, cushions and upholstery look great in Florence fabric.  If you’ve got a little more cash and a nice room for it, her rugs are pretty amazing too.

Happy Friday everyone!
