It is no secret that Bristol is home to a lot of talent. The streets around Stokes Croft for example are spilling over with creativity. At every turn a new artist or maker is exhibiting their works, participating in a pop-up shop or collaborating with other local artists, concocting something magical. It is evident that Bristol based artists draw much of their inspiration from the city itself- the buzz, the architecture, the history, the skyline- many of these influences find their way into the artists final product.
On Friday we discovered yet another local talent, the artist Emmeline Simpson whose work was on sale in the @Bristol shop. Immediately envisaging a fantastic union between #DAW chair and Emmeline’s depiction of the screen printed suspension bridge on a cushion, I asked the staff at @Bristol if we could incorporate the #beautiful cushion in one of our shots, and they agreed. We used the cushion to pad out the #Eames inspired #yellow #DAW chair, that we partly immersed in their water-feature (see below). The vibrant colour of the chair combined with the softer tones of the cushion worked perfectly and it should inspire shoppers on ways to cozy up their own #Eames #DAW replica, by getting it cushionised!
Emmeline has her own website where you can peruse her collection and purchase some of her creations (they would make excellent Christmas presents). Her work is also sold on Not on the High Street as well as in independent shops across #Bristol.
