Felted Wool Stones

Posted by tb4

These felted wool stones from textile designer Ronel Jordaan are pretty fun, and will let you bring a little nature indoors without having to deal with all that dirt that comes with bringing real nature indoors. I know I know you could wash the stones you bring in from outside and not have to worry about all the dirt, but seriously those stones would be so heavy and not very comforatable to lay on. These remind me of the Livingstones from designer Stephanie Marin.

"Renowned South African textile designer Ronel Jordaan takes her inspiration from nature, and uses felt to give free rein to her imagination. Socially conscious as well as gifted, Jordaan has set up a women's workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg-where her personally trained artisans transform interlocking fibers, made from 100% merino wool, into these freeform oversized "stone" floor cushions. Though they may fool the eye, they provide immediately recognizable comfort to weary torsos in search of a relaxing seat. Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back. Children love them. Parents love them. Guests love them, too. Hand washable in cold water."
