Angie Parker and Jonathan Rose will present a new take on Scandinavian design at this year’s Decorex International. Danish Disrupted: A collaborative project of limited edition chairs, designed by Jonathan Rose, with original Krokbargd handwoven textile upholstery by Angie Parker.
Angie's vivid colours and exacting weaves fit perfectly into Jonathan’s Danish design. All framed in black wood, with further colour options and fabric designs available to order.
Bespoke Krokbragd Rugs: Angie’s signature handwoven rugs take the traditional Scandinavian weaving technique to a new level with her skill twists on this time honoured technique, giving it a contemporary look.
For the first time, these two are delighted to be together with Design Nation at Decorex, Olympia London , 6-9 October 2019 on stand J170.
Jonathan Rose and Angie Parker met whilst exhibiting at Design Junction with Design Nation in 2018. A mutual admiration for each others distinctive style and immediate friendship made this new collaboration a refreshing and enjoyable experience for both. Playing to each other strengths they worked well together to bring the first pieces of a new partnership for Decorex 2019 and look forward to taking this project forward.
