This project was just meant to be! We were so excited the moment Stefana found us on Instagram and said “Oh, wait! Are you located in Bulgaria? I am Bulgarian!” And the rest is history that also included a cushion being shipped from Stefana’s country of origin – Bulgaria to her home in Maryland, USA. Oh, did we mention that Stefana is the founder of a favorite lifestyle blog of ours? Check it out at StefanaSilber.com!
She had just built a custom window reading nook with a built-in bench and she needed a custom cushion for it. We jumped on the opportunity to be part of this beautiful home and created a bespoke cushion that fits perfectly. The optimal cushion thickness for the space she created was 3″ and that’s why we made a 3″ tufted cushion. The fabric she chose was our 100% Oeko-Tex certified cotton fabric. The natural unbleached color was just the perfect match for the reading nook and for the whole interior. The piped edges and the tufting surely complemented the timeless design of the room.
“Growing up in Bulgaria in the 80’s, the use of natural materials was very common. I experienced the versatility and advantages of wool fabric firsthand. I still very much prefer natural materials whenever possible. Their durability, performance, and beauty is unrivaled by any man-made material.
Bulgarians have a long tradition of farming and living close to nature, honoring their relationship with the earth and animals. Wool is a natural material that is renewable, sustainable, and biodegradable. Our ancestors have used it for clothing and bedding for centuries. I was so thrilled that Home of Wool is keeping that tradition alive and bringing it all the way to the US.” – Stefana Silber
