First Post – Collaboration

The first collaborative  textile design project ‘Floating Landscapes’ is now complete. It has been an exciting journey together.  The creating of designs is always where we both want to be but there has been a tremendous amount of hard work in getting the website, administrative, promotional and social media side of business up and running.  We have both learnt a lot along the way and now have a Facebook page under Mc Bean and Budd, two Twitter accounts and Instagram in the pipeline.

Some market research has been,  and continues to be carried out in relation to our products and we shall be making further contact with selected  local businesses.

Two of our one-off art chairs have found new homes and we are currently arranging for two 1960’s cocktail chairs plus a fabulous Ercol chair to be reupholstered in our fabrics. The ‘WOW’  Ercol daybed, our last upcyle,  can be viewed on our website. This is a very versatile piece of furniture and can be presented with patterned back cushions with grey lilac seat or reversed to be all one colour.

‘Landscape Graffiti’ is the title of the next collection which we are currently working together on and we are both very excited and eager to be as expressive and experimental with our design concepts so as to create unique, painterly textiles for use in both domestic and public interiors.

Here is a little glimpse of work in progress, early days yet, but we have already created lots of wonderful, colourful  original imagery to use within our design concepts in preparation for the next collection.
