Octopus Armchair – Conner


It is ocean madness week! Conner sent us a photograph of an armchair that he reupholstered in Britex Fabric home decorating cotton. We love the eight-armed octopus in the center of the back. To make this even more amazing, this is Conner’s first reupholstering project. This spectacular fabric is found on our 2nd floor.
“I’d like to be under the sea
In an octopus’ garden in the shade
He’d let us in, knows where we’ve been
In his octopus’ garden in the shade
We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus’ garden near a cave”

Sea Creatures Fabric & Shower Curtain

This home decorating fabric festooned with beautifully drawn sea creatures, would dress up your bathroom swimmingly. I’d like it as a shower curtain, with a matching sink skirt. It would be perfect for a little jolt of springtime rejuvenation.
