Knit Revolution, by LO

Have you knoticed….knits are everywhere!  These days when you think about knits, it’s not just a about a cozy sweater that will keep you warm throughout the winter.  Knits are showing up all over the place, especially in home decor.  And why not, wool is a sustainable material, it can be naturally dyed any rich, beautiful color and it can add an interesting and unexpected texture to your home’s canvas.

This fall, at 100% Design London, we saw the Knit Revolution in full force.  There were knitted sofas, knitted ottomans, knitted lamp shades – and since then, I’ve seen knitted bike racks, knitted coffee cozies- even a knitted bus!  Some of the things I’ve seen covered in colorfully knitted wool have been pretty outrageous, but look how beautiful and unique some interior pieces can be.

    That is unbelievable! Thanks so much for sharing. I would love it if some of this “graffiti” turned up in my neighborhood!
