Tortie Hoare: Leather Furniture

My obsession with formed leather continues and Tortie Hoare's collection isn't helping! In medieval times people boiled leather to form armor. Tortie takes this dated technique and combines it with modern forms.

I know recently there has been an influx of formed leather furniture recently and there has been some controversy if she has "taken" the process from Simon Hasan.. either way, what a beautiful collection she has made.
