Buttons in Modern Spaces

Buttons aren't just for traditional froo froo, they are playing a key role in modern furniture design and decor.

Take for example these gorgeous pillows I found at http://www.allmodern.com/.

I love the fresh new take on such an ancient tool. Do you use buttons in a new fresh way? I'd love to see!

Cute -- I especially like the button on the zipper pull at the bottom!

Oh thanks, Laurie, I hadn't noticed that button zip pull until you mentioned it. I love it. What a fab idea.

I've used my Nan's old buttons to decorate a new canvas bag. 'Did you sew all those buttons on yourself?' is the usual comment. xx

Have used all white buttons for a Santa beard on a wool pillow, covered a lamp shade(very heavy) covered small boxes with one color of buttons, made flowers with center buttons and lots of wool petals and glued house numbers out of white buttons on a watermelon slice for the back door. Peggy

I continue to use my buttons on my narrative quilts...they are like messengers from another time. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary helen Fernandez Stewart

lovely ideas. I also use my buttons to decorate plain bags that I've bought and ones that I've made too. They just add that something extra!
