Industrial Lace

06 Mar


I have posted on the use of lace in interior design previously, but far from the doily or net curtain style, I am loving the fusion of lace with an industrial look, using materials such as concrete, metal and more textural materials which take it away from it’s more delicate stereotype…. Here are a few of my favourites…

Jo Gibbs – etching onto slate and wood



Lace Lighting – which casts a beautiful shadow around your room…

Something for the bedroom………………….


Hand screen painting cushions from Rockett St George

…and I love this find on Pinterest for the Lace headboard….. not sure where you would find lace on this scale….


And finally a felt rug by Polish designer Agnieszka Czop which plays on the polish tradition of the doily.

Feeling a little inspired to raid the linen cupboard now!…Meanwhile on with the colourful adventure……

      I agree with Ellsa – the headboard is amazing, but Jo Gibbs takes the prize for me. Just fab’! 🙂

      Absolutely, although I am very jealous you are heading into spring… we are just heading into Autumn in Australia! Thank you for stopping by, I am glad you enjoyed the post 🙂

    Totally love this form of art. Very intricate and I bet it’s very complicated to come up with any kind of designs and work in general.
