Donna Wilson

The three different sized pouffes are filled with calico bags, hand stuffed with 100% recycled PET fibre and upholstered with knitted panels in Wilson's distinctive patterns. The Braid patterned covers use a traditional Fair Isle knitting technique and were made in Scotland, while the Nos Da designs are produced in Wales. Donna Wilson is based just outside of Hackney in Tower Hamlets. She has designed various products for SCP including furniture, rugs and cushions featuring her knitted textile designs.

In 2009 Donna Wilson came up with a playful response to the problem of occasional seating with a range of three low-lying pouffes, designed to bring a little softness, intimacy and colour into the home. Each pouffe is made by hand stuffing Calico bags with 100% recycled PET fibre and upholstering them with the knitted panels, reminiscent of segments of an orange.

The Braid upholstery is also designed by Donna Wilson and knitted in Scotland from 100% lamb’s wool using a traditional Fairisle knitting technique. Also available in Nos Da, Bora Da, Zig Zag and Treecloud fabric. The pouffes are one of the many designs by Donna Wilson for SCP. Other designs include the Nos Da and Bora Da collection, Bertha armchair, Motley ottoman, Munro sofa and Sprig bone china collection. Designed in Hackney, made in Norfolk.
