Wouldn’t You Though?

23 Oct 2015

With the festive season just around the corner, there are almost certainly going to be times when we’ve got a fuller house than usual.  And more people means more bums on seats – and maybe more bums than seats?  These ‘crush cubes’ are a perfect solution.


They’re made locally, and you can either choose from their selection or pick your own fabric, mix and match, and get the perfect combo for you.  Sleek and stylish?  Bold and bright?  Vibrant and vivid?  Totally your call.  Or even fluffy.


I love how colourful they can be – and how very practical.  Perch on them, pop your feet up when it all gets too much, or put a Perspex circle on top and – ta da! – you’ve got a table.


They’re the creation of Francesca Fraser, who wanted to bring a bit of her own love of colour into a house filled four (count ‘em) sons.  And who can blame her?

There are also cushions – little ones and floor ones – that you can coordinate or clash with your crush cube (or what my granny would have called a pouffe).

Can’t help thinking that it would be great to have a couple around over Christmas – and, well, any time really.  Anything that lets me get my feet up in style….
