(HOW TO) Upholstery with Rush
''To upholster with rush— it allowed us to go a bit mad, to push all our boundaries.''
At London Design Festival, Rush Matters upholstered a Tom Dixon bespoke chaise lounge. A trick of the mind, to see a tree bent like this; not gnarled or knotted, but looped together in impossibly soft tubes, and spun, like cotton candy, into a gentle slope.
The premise seems impossible — you might as well upholster in rock or spun sugar, when witnessing how these sturdy plants are thwacked together. Here, at last, is design that makes of nature something inexhaustible — rather than simply exhausting it.
We're giving you the chance to own this chair and acquire a unique handcrafted chaise longue with a charity auction on our Instagram Stories.
