I am in love with this limited edition cross stitched bench by Dutch design duo Ontwerpduo. The bench was handmade from oak. The fabric was hand woven in the Ontwerpduo studio, and then stitched. It's lovely and oh-so-inspiring. Ontwerpduo does some amazing work (stitched curtains, anyone?). Check out their complete portfolio here.Read more
