Home accessories never felt so good

Sometimes it’s product photography that ultimately sells me. In the case of FilzFelt
, it’s product photography and
the product itself (and
a dog) that won me over so not much arm-twisting here …
Out of Kelly Smith
and Traci Roloff
's year-old, Boston-based felt design firm,
FilzFelt, comes stunning but unfussy 100 percent wool felt tabletop accessories — coasters, trivets, runners, placemats and the like. Everything is die-cut and available in a variety of beautiful colors.
Here’s the deal with popular-again felt
: it comes from shorn sheep (in this case, shorn German sheep). But it’s also considered to be a durable and ecological material that’s recyclable. So while it’s not for folks with sheep sensitivities
, wool felt ranks highly on the renewable natural fibers scale.
Okay, enough about sheep. Time to drool over these images of FilzFelt’s tabletop accessories as well as additional items like pillows and floor mats. Once you’ve finished ogling the merch, head on over to the FilzFelt online catalog
for a little retail therapy. And if you want more, check out the FilzFelt Flickr
page and this website
dedicated to Smith’s adorable vizlas.
