Publisher Textiles, I love you...

I've had a long term love affair with Publisher Textiles since getting a freebie botanica print note book with an issue of Inside Out Magazine many years ago. They have the most beautiful range of hand printed fabrics and wallpapers. We have this Rocket Lamp covered in their "Apollo" print fabric in our lounge. Such a lovely intricate print:

I don't know if this fabric is still in print, but there are cushions available in denim colour on the Publisher Textile site here

After searching for about 2 years we found this fantastic mid Century Fler rocking chair. It had been badly recovered in dusty pink velvet, complete with cigarette burns, delightful. The foam was still in pretty good shape, so I thought I would have a go at re upholstering it. I used Publisher Textiles "Bugsey" fabric, which was the perfect weight and really easy to work with. Not bad for a first effort, I love it!

How amazing does the print look on a larger scale?

I had enough fabric leftover to make this table runner:

I also bought a few meters of this gorgeous botanica print to play with. It's beautifully sheer and would make a lovely curtain. I would love to paper a room with this print one day, just need a bigger house!


  1. You did a great job with that rocking chair! It's beautiful.

    tx for your sweet message on my blog :)

  2. That chair looks great! You've inspired me to get mine done - I have been thinking about doing it for years. Now..just to choose the fabric!
