MAJA LAPTOS STUDIO was launched to design timeless and distinctive cushion collections that playfully subvert traditional styles and forms. Always passionate about ‘dressing interiors’, adding statement pieces and finishing touches, Maja has turned to embroidery to create cushions that stand out whatever the interior style.
‘Maja believes that we are attracted to remarkable and quirky objects that draw our attention and capture our imagination. In her designs she wants to reflect our curiosity and admiration for the natural world, insects, animals and plants, art and rare and strange objects, in historic times found in so-called ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’ or ‘wonder rooms.’
This approach is reflected in the first collections (Insectarium, Curiosities, Corals, Wonderland and Geometry), which are handmade in Gdańsk, Poland from a wide range of fabrics, decorative ribbons, trimmings and fringe from only the best sources around the world.
