Ensemblier's Pret a Dormir collection brings together rare one-off textiles to create investment pieces, combining a distinctive frame using exquisite British craftsmanship with a unique fabric to create an objet d'art.
Our beloved Brigid in our new colleciton is gracefully upholstered in a Kurdish twill wool that started life as a large shawl, originating from Iran c.1980. We colour matched the rich earthy tones of the wool with a vegetable-dyed brown leather which was hand-piped around the edge for an elegant and unique style.
In our Vintage Colleciton, we offer the chance to upholster our four new shapes Brigid, Dagda, Eriu and Morrigan, in either a vintage fabric sent to us or an Ensemblier-sourced vintage piece with a consultation. Alongside the chosen vintage fabric comes various details to choose from, such as brass studs, elaborate trimmings, or a plain edge or pipe.
Upholstery using vintage fabrics creates a story to tell, a talking piece, and combined with our British craftsmanship, a piece with longevity within a home that values an eye for design and natural living. The back of each frame has a numbered brass plate marking its production journey and maker, signalling the quality of manufacturing and a seal of longevity.
