Claire-Anne O'Brien and the Herd of Stools

 Look what I discovered today!  Aren't these charming and delightful?

From her website:
Originally from Co.Cork, Ireland, Claire-Anne O’Brien is a textile designer based in East London. 
After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2006 with a BA in Textiles, Claire-Anne went on to gain an MA in Knitted Textiles at the Royal College of Art in 2010. 

With a sculptural approach to textiles, Claire-Anne explores form, construction and scale through the unique properties of knitted fabrics.

Look how cute they are all huddled together, like sheep in a herd.  But really, how cool would these be as accent pieces in a home?
I am in love with the exaggerated knitting and how the glob sits atop spindly legs.  They resemble animals so, it's almost like they are alive!

One last little lovely.

Oh my gosh those are amazing!! I bet they are crazy expensive, too. I wonder if you could somehow make a version of it?

Dani ("Crochet-Queen"), you could totally make one of these. They're so cute!
