Stunning Textiles & Upholstery Work

Going through my newspapers and magazines cuttings, I stumbled into an image of one of Bojka's designs, that I had put aside for my references a while ago.  The creators of these amazing designs are Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri from Beirut.   I can only describe their work as fun, with sense of humour and incredible stylish.  What initially attracted me was the patterns of the textiles and colours.  I love the clashing of prints, and textures not mentioning the quality of the fabric on these chairs, very inspiring. 

The question is, would you have these screaming chairs in your home?  Yes I would, as a one off or two at the most. But then again, it depends on how much space, and your creative eye on displaying them. 

In conclusion, I can not end this post without mentioning the Bojka Bug.
