With prints and patterns coming in and out of fashion and designers always looking to inspire with the latest trends we often try to propose items to our customers that are seasonal must haves ! Take for example the pineapple was last years fruit while this year it is certainly the watermelon. This year brands and designers have focused on the flamingo and we see this bird on wall stickers, posters and as pretty prints on clothing.
One animal that always seems to heavily influence designers, their patterns and work are cats ! Our love for felines is evident in the many items we stock at French Blossom. We have tried to draw together some of our favourites to create the little moodbard below. We really fell for some other items while searching the web and had to share these with you too.
Whether a designer takes the overall form of a cat for a lighting design or uses the basic features of a cat to create an original cushion or bag, cats remain a strong theme for creators.
Whether you are looking for an original gift idea for someone special or if you are trying to get inspired by the perfect piece of original childrens room decoration, cats are always a fun and popular choice.1. Handmade in France, porcelain coffee cups from Sobigraphie
