Trained at the prestigious Central Saint Martin’s college, Melanie Porter likes wool…more importantly she loves to knit, and uses it to produce contemporary knitted fabric to upholster interior products. Starting with the frame itself, which is stripped back and restored, this blank canvas is then covered with a series of hand-knitted panels. Melanie undertakes the entire process herself and everything, from the restoration and upholstering to the individual, crocheted buttons, is done by hand. Melanie shall be showing her new collection of knitted interior products for the first time at Tent London in September. You may have to get your order in quick for her gorgeous knitted lampshades, and the super chunky Hugo cushions made from British wool…time to get cosy! Melanie Porter is showing at Tent London 20th-23rd September.
