MAJA LAPTOS STUDIO was launched to design timeless and distinctive cushion collections that playfully subvert traditional styles and forms. Always passionate about ‘dressing interiors’, adding statement pieces and finishing touches, Maja has turned to embroidery to create cushions that stand out whatever the interior style.
‘I believe that we are attracted to remarkable and quirky objects that draw our attention and capture our imagination. In my designs I want to reflect our curiosity and admiration for the natural world, insects, animals and plants, art and rare and strange objects, in historic times found in so-called ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’ or ‘wonder rooms.’
This approach is reflected across the first capsule collections, Insectarium, Curiosities, Corals, Wonderland and Geometry, which are inspired by a variety of influences and hand crafted in Gdansk, Poland from a wide range of fabrics and trimmings – piping, ribbons and brush fringes, sourced internationally.
‘The Studio offers personalized and bespoke services so that we can advise our customers with the choice of fabric and its colour, thread colour for the embroidery as well as the trimmings or order a completely bespoke embroidery design – for that final touch, which often leads to one-of-a kind statement pieces.’
