Nikki McWilliams

Hello lovely people!

I have a lovely interview from Nikki McWilliams to share with you today!  She has all sorts of lovely products on her website but my favorite items are her cushions! As you all know I am a bit obsessed with them.  All photos in this post are property of Nikki McWilliams.

- Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

I'm Nikki, I'm 27 and I'm a designer. I love new sketchbooks, biscuits and cats.

- What made you decide to pursue a career in textiles?

It seemed like the natural path for me. I've always loved working with cloth - ever since my mum taught me to sew and make when I was wee.

- I love all the biscuit cushions and can't decide which one I like the best! Where did you get the idea to create these?

From our overflowing biscuit-tin!

- Where do you get your inspiration from?

Anywhere and everywhere.

- Do you have any new pieces int he pipeline?

Yes a few! We launched a brand new cushion last week (Biscuit Mix) and we have a few more on the way.

- Any exciting news to share?

See above!

- Do you have any advice for new designers?

Be fearless!

- What is your favorite piece of work to date and why?

My new Biscuit Mix cushion in cool monotone.  It's so different to my previous work and I can't wait to bag a few for our flat!

I just want to say thank you to Nikki for taking the time to answer my questions and letting me write this post!
