Ronel Jordaan's Rock Cushions (by @baekdal) #design In late January I wrote about the cool looking rock cushions "LivingStones". Then Sian Eliot (from Willowlamp Studio) commented that the South African designer "Ronel Jordaan" has been making rock cushions for years. Naturally I had to investigate the case. I looked up Ronel Jordaan's website, contacted her, and found that she had indeed made rock cushions since December 2004. Not only that, but Ronel's rock cushions is also way better looking than Livingstones. Ronel Jordaan's cushions are also completely hand-made, hand-dyed, hand-carded, made out of felt, and have no stitches. You can get the rocks in several colors like cream, pale brown, pale grey, mid grey, dark grey, charcoal, brown, and DK brown. So, if you just want to be cool then there is always LivingStones' copy of the real thing. (Thanks Sian for the tip!) Follow: 42Concepts
