Spiders and bats and snails, oh my

Not the most likely motifs for a beautiful textile collection perhaps, but these creatures and more appear on the cushions, throws and shawls of Finnish design studio Klaus Haapaniemi. The patterns are drawn from Finnish folklore and the textiles are mostly made by hand using traditional methods, materials and dyes.

Unsurprisingly, these handmade textiles don’t come cheap (the throw above is £395, the cushion, £70 and the silk scarf, £110) but if you can stretch you can order online. While you’re there, check out the charming screen prints too – the green owl is my favourite. Don’t be fooled by his whimsical expression… his talons tell a different story.

    Just not so sure about insects in interior design. Don’t think they are for me at all. Which means I won’t be tempted by any of these designs!
