Deryn Relph

The chair

I don't know how I found her, but boy am I glad I did, my world can always take more colour in it.
I finally got to see her amazing creations at Top drawer and was not disappointed. And 2 months later our very own chair has made its way to the gallery. It has had so much love, and rightly so because once you sit in it I defy you to not want to snuggle up or swizzle round in it every single day. I was close to telling the delivery driver to just drive round the corner and deliver it straight to my house but alas, not everything can go home with me.  I just get to admire it every time I'm in the gallery instead.

Here is some more information about her.

Deryn Relph is a textile designer, with a love of colour, pattern and texture, who likes to think creatively about the use of textiles she designs and constructs.
“Although I specialised in knitted textiles for Interior use during my BA(Hons) Textile Design at Winchester School of Art, I merge this with previous upholstery and furnishing skills to create unique and contemporary solutions to an idea.
Versatility is something I believe to be important, and I am keen to think ‘outside the box’ and take on any challenges for which my textile background might hold the key!
Issues affecting the Environment, and Sustainable design underpin my design ethos, and consideration to ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ is made throughout the process, with use of colour and technical ability aiding the solutions.
Working from a studio at my South coast, Hampshire home, I often re-invent discarded furniture and lightshades, making them desirable in a contemporary home. Informed and considerate choices are made in selecting fibres and yarns which come predominantly from factory surplus stocks.”
“Inspiration for my work is often taken from aspects of nature, particularly structures, or scientific imagery.
Nostalgia and evoking an emotional response to engage the user with an object play a part – if something makes us happy, or we love it for the memories it brings I believe we will treasure it for longer rather than send it to landfill.
Retro influences are often evident in my designs, inspired by my own childhood memories and happy times.”

Each chair is a complete one off and I am so happy with ours. cushions are on their way too.

Do you like?

So cheery and I like the philosophy behind her art! Her use and love of color remind me of Lucy of Attic 24 and also of your wonderful use of color, Janet :)
