Plenty of Pockets
We all know a pocket is a nifty design feature and in our designs we have incorporated many different pocket types. Join us as we celebrate the power of the pocket and share examples of how you can incorporate them in different ways.
A pocket door can’t go without a mention! The traditional swing door can take up a lot of room and so using doors that slide into neat pockets are an effective way to utilise space. We have used these doors in our apartments at One Denman Place. We often opt to use pocket doors for compact kitchens as they don’t impede and look sleek.
Our Kit Kemp Silk Pocket Squares are the perfect way to jazz up any outfit. They have been made from some of our favourite fabrics and introduce a cheerful pop of colour to brighten up these winter days.
They can be styled in a number of ways including around your neck, as a headscarf, or even as a bow on your pony tail!
Pockets on Upholstery
Just as a pocket is useful on clothing, a pocket on an armchair is useful too. They make a perfect place to store your newspaper and reading glasses. Our Leo Armchair has a handy pocket feature. This is a snug and useful chair which has a comfortable seat for you to sink into with a supportive back. It is our more refined and elegant version of the classic club chair.
In the summer our friend and design intern Isabelle collected some of our favourite fabric samples and made them into pocket drawstring bags. These small bags are helpful at keeping things tidy. We love how she has used small samples to make patchwork designs and chose samples that create a harmonious colour scheme. Read more about this in our blog post: Creative Ways to Use Spare Fabric Samples.
We hope this blog has inspired you to start using more pockets in your designs. Share your creations with us on Instagram @KitKempDesignThread.
