Swoon Edition Marley Foostool x Eva Sonaike African Inspired Textiles
Just spotted Swoon Editions‘ Marley Footstool collaboration with London-based textile designer Eva Sonaike. The luxury online furniture and interiors retailer has given one of its designs a spring refresh courtesy of Eva Sonaike’s Wewe fabric from the Aburi Collection. The vibrant pattern of the African inspired textiles feature a two-tone green banana leaf against a small banana leaf print background, and was inspired by a trip to Aburi Botanical Gardens in Ghana. The collaboration is part of Swoon Edition’s Designer Editions feature, which pairs one of their coveted furniture designs with talented textile designers. A new Designer Editions collaboration is unveiled each week and is available in small quantities. There are only 10 of the footstool collaboration available.
Textile designer Eva Sonaike’s eponymous brand has been making waves in the interiors industry for a while now, sought after for injecting home and accessories with contemporary African inspired prints in uplifting, punchy colours. The brand’s African inspired textiles draw on Eva’s Nigerian heritage and the wider West African region’s love affair with vibrant patterned textiles.
