Double Quarter Stripe, Florence Broadhurst, Three Birds Renovations

It was an exciting day when Bonnie and Louisa of Three Birds Renovations joined us in the Alexandria Design Studio to see our latest Florence Broadhurst collection!

With over 20 new Florence prints and a new wallpaper collection, visiting one of our studios really is the best way to view our vast range and see things you don’t get access to elsewhere.

Our Design Studios

Samples can be printed on the spot on a choice of over 40 base cloths. Fabric ‘flags’ can be strewn over big white tables. Design choices can be made using our library of colour-coded textiles. We have ORIGINAL 1960’s Florence Broadhurst wallpaper books which you can thumb through without white gloves. And our Sydney studio is next to The Grounds of Alexandria which always makes for a delicious brunch or tea!

The Three Birds brief was ‘Hamptons’ for their renovation in Glenhaven. Classic blue and white, fresh, playful, youthful, family.

Some designs were already in the perfect colourway but as interior designers you can create your own to suit your palette.

Hessian was selected for bench seat covers and bolster cushions in the entryway. Already available in 34 colourways, Bonnie created a fourth, Antique. A well-balanced textural design used extensively to coordinate colour and design in any project. This dense Florence Broadhurst texture adds an organic feel that naturally matches back to her bolder motifs.

A stripe was required for the kitchen dining bench seat and as Florence Broadhurst was the theme and we have access to her design archives, Double Quarter Stripe was unearthed and refreshed for Three Birds Renovations in a timeless navy. Stripes are a staple pattern for any room, and will work alongside any trend.

We worked with The Foam Booth for custom covers and matching bolsters, all made here in Sydney. 100 mm high density foam was selected for the seat cushions and 50 mm foam for the back rests, with dacron between the foam and the fabric.

White Covers In A Family Home? No Problem!

The removable covers are printed onto Arizona in our Blakehurst workshop. This textured cotton-feel Polyester base cloth meets Abrasion Resistance requirements of AS 2687 for Class 5 Commercial Heavy Duty and has a ‘rub rate’ of over 100,000 (Martindale). So, if required, simply throw in the wash (or you can even dry clean it.)

We think you’ll agree, the results are stunning. Make sure you watch the series unfold every Monday at 8pm EST from October 14.
