Happy Birthday Florence!

We are nothing if not die-hard fans of Florence Broadhurst. 113 years ago today, Florence Maude Broadhurst arrived on the planet to blow our little minds and continues to do so long after her passing.


To honour our favourite designer on her birthday, we've restored this 1950's Parker Knoll with Florence's 'Japanese Floral' design, produced exclusively by Signature Prints and now adorning handbags, shoes, dresses, jewellery and a bus (!), courtesy of New York fashion designer Kate Spade.


The 'Japanese Floral' fabric is from the Signature Prints 'Home' Collection, fabric is 100% cotton 'Tan Union', colour: 'Bley'. We've combined Florence's design with a 100% Australian wool eco-felt in red.





















Flourish and Blume just love going with the Flo.
