Trendspotting: Laser-Cut Felt

Lately I've been noticing more and more products -- from tableware to lighting and flooring -- created from laser-cut felt.

It's such an interesting juxtaposition: The fuzzy, woolly, wintry felt gives weight, warmth, and earthiness to the delicate, even ethereal laser-cut designs.

Take a look:

Chrysanthemum Placemat, $42 for a set of six from Venucci

Snowflake Coasters, 12 pounds sterling (about $24) for four, and Little Doily Placemat, 16 pounds ($32), from Donna Wilson

Gabrielle Lewin Flowers Placemats, $32 for four, and Coasters, $10 for four, from the MoMA Store

Lacey Felt Placemat, $4 at Crate & Barrel

Sweat Pea Table Runner, 25 AUD (about $22), Black Tussie Mussie Table Runner, 35 AUD ($30), Sweat Pea Placemat, 7 AUD ($6), and Coaster, 4 AUD ($3.50), all by Venucci, available at Hart & Heim

Bouquet Placemats, $35 each from Out of Gray

Cappelletti Vintage Cushions, Sconcigli Cushion, and Lotus Throw from Illu Stration by Mary-Ann Williams

Sconcigli Pendant, Xolo Pendant, Bloom Light Chain, and Oak Leaves Pendant from Illu Stration by Mary-Ann Williams

Mixko Delight Light Shade, $161 at Rose and Radish

Laser Cut Felt Rug, $199 to $499, from Brocade Home

Cappelletti Rug from Illu Stration by Mary-Ann Williams

Doily Rug, 440 pounds sterling (about $880) from Donna Wilson

Wool Wall and Room Divider Panels from Bev Hisey

Nice post and collection of finds! Laser cut felt has been all the rage in Europe now for awhile, at least the past 3 years that I've noticed while there in Germany/Netherlands/England. Felting is so popular in Germany especially, it's nice to FINALLY see this stuff over here. We always seem to get this stuff last!

oh, nice collection of felt design for all wallets.. Crate&Barrell, really?
I'd like to add Tom Dixon's "Felt Shade" lamps.

I found this self adhesive felt ribbon sized 1.6" wide in 1 yard length. Easy to cut, colorfast, and washable.

I wish they had it in other colors (like black or white). I would love to add it to inexpensive pillows or plain linen placements/table runner to make my own unique look.

I have found the most gorgeous laser cut felt holiday snowflake table runner at I live in Australia and this company who are located in California do not ship internationally. I have contacted the company and searched the web with no luck. Does any one have any ideas about where I might purchase one of these?
