The glaswegian iconic textile and design company Timorous Beasties caught my attention some time ago. Clearly well educated and experienced enough to elegantly break the unwritten laws of stylistic design they create the most lovely and irreverent prints and furniture pieces.The Hotch Blotch series with its disorderly splatters within damask patterns drags classic furniture into the modern world of design…
…and the Iguana print on top has my nickers in a twist!
Finally, I do feel that a sidestep and musing over the company name is in order 🙂
To a Mouse (Robert Burns)
Wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie,
O, what a panic’s in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi’ bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an’ chase thee,
Wi’ murd’ring pattle!
