Ronel Jordaan's Rock Cushions

Written by Thomas Baekdal | 2008-02-20 11:00:44

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. When you compare the two, you will be absolutely amazed how real Ronel's "rock cushions" look.

Ronel Jordaan's cushions are also completely hand-made, hand-dyed, hand-carded, made out of felt, and have no stitches. What you end up with is a much better result. It is not several pieces of textile put together and made to look like a rock. It has a more complete feel.

You can get the rocks in several colors like cream, pale brown, pale grey, mid grey, dark grey, charcoal, brown, and DK brown. And, they come in several sizes ranging from small 35x30x18cm (14x12x7 inches) to gigantic 65x65x35cm (26x26x14 inches).

So, if you just want to be cool then there is always LivingStones' copy of the real thing. But if you want the "Sub-Zero Coolness" then you have to get some of Ronel Jordaan's rock cushions!

(Thanks Sian for the tip!)
