Design of the Day – Forget tank-top and think chunky knit!

The cold nights and winter weather will soon be jumping on us out of the blue. Mini skirts and tank tops will be exchanged for knee high boots and chunky knits, which is everyones favourite winter warmer. Well this Design of the Day will certainly make you want to gear up the fire and get ready for Mr Frost.

Phat Knits is a collection by Netherlands Designer, Bauke Knottnerus, who creates oversized knitted pieces for interiors using large threads. This piece looks like something a giant Grandma has knitted and would be a perfect snuggle rug for any room.

The collection is currently on display at the Mode Museum in Belgium  until 14th August 2011 for your perusal and is sure to take the winter worries away.

Celebrate your national pride and get in the mood for the most exciting Royal wedding for decades with a pair of stupendous “Pip and Pen” vintage dining chairs by Melanie Porter. Individually knitted and felted, the covers give a sweater look and seem extremely comfy! It takes up to five weeks to knit the covers and restore the chairs back to their natural beauty, and a perfect way to inject character into your home.  You can grab a pair from www.notonthehighstreet.com for £1500.
