Feng shui might say that three’s a crowd, but Alecia Jensen, Anna Harves and Brianna Pike aren’t the sort to subscribe to conventions anyway.
Even if you haven’t heard of SixHands, you might already have evidence of the Sydney-based design trio’s cutting edge innovation hanging in your wardrobe. Their textiles have been picked up by top local fashion labels including Sportsgirl, Alannah Hill and Wayne Cooper. And now they’re turning their focus on outfitting your home.
Like the clothing they’ve had a hand (or six) in, these are not wallpapers for wallflowers. Fusing traditional craftsmanship with the limitless possibilities of new technology, their hand-painted splashes and photorealistic motifs make a spectacular union on vibrant lampshades, rich woollen rugs and large-scale wall art.
Now put aside any notion that busy fabrics are unflattering. Roots firmly grounded in fashion mean these ladies know how scale, colour and pattern manipulate an object they are applied to — whether it’s your tush or your Chaise.
And for the discerning homemaker, speak to them about their bespoke service where they’ll fully customise a print to your liking.
Who said wallpaper was passé?
