Terrarium is an exciting young design company creating striking contemporary fabrics and products. The company was founded in 2015 by designer Sophie Thompson out of her desire to bring the beauty and abundance of nature into the home.
By working with a variety of media she builds up layers of detail to create imagery with a dramatic and feminine style. The use of colourful inks is vital to her drawing process, depicting flora and fauna alongside capturing the artistic details of ink interacting with water.
By combining and enhancing hand drawn imagery with a considered use of digital processes her work retains the delicate and textural hand finished qualities. Coming from a background in antique dealing, Sophie's style is influenced by the elegance of the past as well as her passion for contemporary design. These contrasting elements combined to form Terrarium and its range of exciting and unusual products including cushions, lampshades and re-upholstered antique furniture.
