Why you should trust your design instincts

Why the unexpected combination of camouflage and fur looks right!

According to Fashionista.com, Fall 2019 runways are making a big statement… print camouflage is BACK and more versatile than ever. 

Early on in our journey of sourcing unusual and special pieces of furniture with an aim to deconstruct and then reimagine, Suzanne found a great sofa that appealed to her sense of scale and imagination.

This impressively large sofa looked very aristocratic but, like a beautiful old stately home, had seen better days. I was curious to see how Suzanne would transform this sofa. After sitting with it in her studio for a few days, she took to her sofa canvas and decided that a camouflage fabric would be sufficiently bold and audacious.

Then pairing it with faux fur on the arms gave it a luxurious couture look. Voila! Our Lost in Place Sofa was born. Our Lost in Place Ottoman was then inspired by the look of our original camo sofa.

Sometimes the most unexpected pairings, fit just right. Suzanne’s style as an artist dares to be different, against some norms of design . The Lost in Place ottoman also includes hand-crocheted detailing.

YOUR GUT IS YOUR BEST FRIEND! Listening to it, may just be the innovation needed for our world of fashion.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO!

Hello, here is the first blog for Ulloo 42. 

When Suzanne and I started the company just over two years ago, we just wanted to do something that we both loved. Having collaborated on several interior design projects in Newport Beach, the Netherlands and London, we knew we worked well together and as we were already best friends of many years this was a bonus. 

To see our past projects check out our Houzz here.

Starting a company seemed like a natural progression, and the idea of re-imagining interesting but, dated looking furniture appealed to both of us. Suzanne started finding pieces that had appeal in scale and style and then set to work totally transforming each piece with her incredible eye and sense of color.

Color is a transformative thing, we LOVE color, the bolder the better. Then add a funky, fun pattern and you have a statement piece that puts a smile on your face.
