Romany patchwork love seat

Remember this lovely patchwork bench by KARE Design? For those of you who missed snapping it up previously, we’ve found another retailer, The French Bedroom Company, who’ve got it in stock.

They call it the Romany Love Seat and have it available in two sizes – the standard size, plus a larger version, the Romany Big Love Seat.

Both versions are available with either plain black legs, or you can choose to have the legs flocked in your choice of colour, for a truly unique look.

With black legs, the Romany love seat costs £285 and the Romany big love seat is priced at £355.

If you can’t get enough of the colourful, eclectic patchwork trend, then matching items to complete a room are also available.

There’s a Romany cube, which would be the perfect occasional seat, which currently costs £145 (usual price £160).

And an unusual storage solution, in the form of the Romany patchwork chest (£345).

Used individually, or together, these pieces all embrace the patchwork trend and could effectively add colour, texture and interest into an interior design room scheme.

January 2013 update:

The patchwork bench is also available from I Love Retro on Bouf, currently priced at £269.

Patchwork bench by KARE Design

Ooh, we’ve just spotted this patchwork bench by KARE Design on offer over at Achica and it reminds us of the fabulous (and now hard to find) Kimono bench we featured a few years ago.

The KARE Design bench is the same shape and style, but with dark legs, and is upholstered in a similar patchwork effect of multicoloured vintage fabrics.

It’s a great design, quirky and colourful piece and a useful extra seat for your home, especially as it could work in so many rooms.

The patchwork bench is on offer at Achica for a very limited time, priced at £149 (usual price £299).

Update: If you missed this offer, but want to buy the bench, you can find other retailers here. Plus, the patchwork bench is also available from I Love Retro on Bouf, priced at £269.

Yes, it’s that lovely, on trend, Kimono bench fabric again – but this time it’s in the form of a large, round floor cushion.

The cushion shows off the wonderful fabric very well, as six glorious pieces are sewn together in a patchwork pattern to form the front of the cushion. As it’s designed to be used on the floor, it needs to be durable, so it’s been finished off with some hard wearing denim.

The Kimono floor cushion measures 40cm in diamete and  is available from the Bird Cage Boutique for £40.

Plumo pink Sari bench

The new Autumn range from Plumo has recently launched and we couldn’t help spotting the Pink Sari Bench - not least as it’s the same design as the infamous Kimono Bench that we’ve featured before.

This time it’s available in a pink patchwork fabric, which is made from an Indian sari, and it has the same red lacquered legs and handy little storage area under the seat. Plumo has it priced at £159.

After a little bit of digging around, we’ve discovered it’s made by a Dutch company called Colorique. It’s part of a range called Piece of Cake, that is really aimed at children, and they also do it in a sea blue colour too.

The only difference with the bench Plumo are selling is that the Colorique  pink and blue benches have white wooden legs instead of red.  Instead of a bench, they describe it as a ‘sofa treasure chest.’

We’ve yet to find any other UK retailers selling it, but will be looking out carefully as, like before, we suspect it may be cheaper to purchase elsewhere.

As nice as the sari fabric is, we personally prefer the original Kimono one, with its vibrant shades of red and blue.

What do you think? Is a pink bench your cup of tea? Or what colours would you prefer?
