Crocheted and knitted works by Naomi Paul

Recycling and art had gathered from some time now and more and more artists try to make a statement by creating beautiful things from what other people considered useless and thrown away. There are entire galleries that combine recycling and artistic manifestations and now it seems that this way of expressing has appeared also in the furniture industry for masses.

Naomi Paul is a designer from London who created a collection based on materials that British considered junk. However, she doesn’t use any thrown away material, but only the luxurious materials. Lots of her products are crochet and knitted works, inspired by traditional crafting techniques. She crated almost any kind of home accessories, starting with cushions,  till chairs and pendants.  All those are beautifully made by crocheting or knitting and the result is amazing because this type of crafting has a lot of meaning. Our grannies and ancestors used to crochet for their loved ones, so this gesture transmits love and caring.

More than this, any crochet item seems vintage and valuable because the process is a very long time one and also delicate, not anyone being able to do it. The items that Naomi Paul designed are very joyful colored so they make you feel happy. Considering crochet is a traditional art, those things can fit any classic room and the flashy colors make them fit even modern ones.  I think the crochet chairs are my favorite ones because they seem more conventional and they don’t shock at all.
