Back in lockdown. If we can’t go out to dinner and dress up – we can still dress the table and the front doorstep 😊 Today we Celebrate Sandy Chilewich who has been elevating the often overlooked simple daily items in our life.
MEET SANDY CHILEWICH | When New York designer Sandy Chilewich came upon the industrial process of extruding yarns, which allows for the creation of continuous filaments, she saw pure potential. In 2000, she introduced her first woven textiles to the international design community. Each year her collection grows through her tireless experimentation and passion for different manufacturing techniques.
At home in both residential and commercial spaces around the world, Chilewich products are designed at our New York City studio. The design team includes master weavers who develop and refine innovative patterns and multi-tonal colours for collections that are renewed seasonally.
'The coloration of every yarn we weave with is produced specifically for each of our original designs. We control the apparent randomness of these bi-colour yarns to create shading, graphic punctuation, and a depth of colour.' - says Sandy Chilewich, Founder and Creative Director, Chilewich
Chilewich design and produce their own yarn, often combining two hues in a single strand to create rich colours that endure through years of daily use, cleaning, and exposure to the elements. Chilewich is making a significant environmental development by replacing the petroleum-based plasticisers in they yarns with phthalate-free, renewable vegetable compounds. They call these innovative new yarns and the fabrics made from them TerraStrand™. It is 100% phthalate-free, and contains 25% vegetable content.
'For me originality and authenticity means we see the creative process and design through our own lens. We look and we listen, but we do not follow trends. The result is that we speak with our own voice and offer designs that are both innovative and unique to enhance interiors.'- says Sandy Chilewich, Founder and Creative Director, Chilewich
The Heathered Welcome Mat from Chilewich is a comforting and appealing way to welcome friends and family to the home. Made from looped vinyl yarns for a tufted, crush-proof texture. The material allows it to be resistant to mould, mildew, and chlorine, and a vinyl backing helps prevent unnecessary slips.

The latest Sunday Inspiration came from Bowentown Getaway House in New Zealand.
From this raised position occupants sit and observe the wind-swept dunes. The dynamic of the external geometry is visible throughout the interior, with apertures favouring connections to the natural environment, while solid walls provide refuge from neighbouring suburbia.
