THE ELEGANCE OF CHELSEA TEXTILES

THE ELEGANCE OF CHELSEA TEXTILES

Chelsea Textiles is a London based interiors boutique specialising in hand-embroidered fabrics and cushions of the same quality as was available in the 17th and 18th century. The company’s product range has expanded over the years to include furniture - and in particular, the elegant Gustavian styles of Scandinavia.

I have been a huge admirer of Chelsea Textiles for quite some time. A good friend of mine has his elegant townhouse filled with their fabrics and cushions, after visiting his home I was hooked.

The products available at CT are expensive but justifiably so -the fabrics and cushions are made by hand and the quality is supremely high. However, CT does have regular sales where you can pick up a bargain. I did just that this week and bought some cushions that I had been admiring for a while. Seeing that they were now half-price I just had to have them.

Sharing my new cushions on INSTAGRAM and seeing the positive response made me realise that I should probably write a blog post and explore the company and their products in more detail..so let’s do that!

The furniture at CT is just as heavenly. I just adore Swedish furniture with its unassuming elegance.

Chelsea Textiles was founded by Mona Perlhagen, a former buyer at Bloomingdales who noticed the lack of antique embroidered fabrics and cushions. The company has been a success and works with some the worlds most respected Interior Designers and boutique hotels.

Mona’s country home, Pusey House, in Oxfordshire is one of my favourites of all time - it is just so stunning!
