Spring has sprung and that means it is time to freshen up and brighten up our surroundings. Bang on trend cross stitch kits and homeware from Scandinavian brand Anette Eriksson hit the mark perfectly. These are contemporary designs on functional products that look uniquely amazing in any home – traditional or modern. But who, or what, is Anette Eriksson and what do they have to offer?
For most designers, inspiration comes from their immediate surroundings. Not so for Swedish born designer Anette Eriksson, who pulls inspiration from her experiences of working around the world and growing up in Sweden together. Bringing East and West together through the ever present medium of Scandinavian minimalism is what sets Anette Eriksson’s designs apart from her contemporaries. Anette Eriksson is a talented designer who has built her eponymous cross stitch interiors brand on sheer creative talent and a unique understanding of modern interior design. By taking part in the creation of your own interior products, Anette is giving you access to the holy grail of design – the ‘one of a kind’ product that rebels against mass produced home decoration.
Here at Past Impressions, we carry a range of the best examples of the Anette Eriksson range. For a unique wedding gift, for example, the large half stitched wedding sampler is absolutely perfect for newly-weds. Lovingly created by you, it is something that will be treasured for decades.
Perhaps the best known and most sought after Anette Eriksson cross stitch kits are the cushion front and full cushion kits. Available in value and premium ranges, these kits provide hours of entertainment and leave you with unique accents for your home that you can’t buy anywhere else.
The cushions range offers something for every kind of décor. If you have a nautical theme going on in your home, the Beach House blue stamped cushion kit compliments your décor perfectly.
If you are more about shabby chic than sea shanty there are lots of wonderful designs available, including the Paris – Rue Montparnasse themed cushion kits or the French Postcard kits. The Collection D’Art range offers something a little less traditional, including cute cats and big florals.
More traditional designs include the beautiful Tulip cushion kit – a neutral background with a spray of colourful spring tulips, or the English Rose cushion kit. These are perfect designs for the spring and summer seasons and help keep your décor light, fresh and fun.
Premium kits come with a prefinished cushion cover and everything you need to create the finished product, whereas most of the value kits include the front half, allowing you to create a similar product for less.
The wonderful thing about Anette Eriksson is that she creates something for everyone’s taste and décor. For a peek at the full range we have available, go to our Anette Eriksson brand page.
