Designed to Be Unique

Patchwork furniture and accessories designed by Agnieszka Borowska will give a unique touch to any home interior.

Pursuing applied arts for years, Borowska is an accomplished fashion and furniture designer. Although she studied to be an architect, she has designed various objects since she was a girl and has been turning ordinary things into something special for as long as she can remember. Borowska has designed her collection of patchwork furniture especially for passionate, modern people who enjoy having unusual items around them and take pride in having a style of their own.

Borowska travels the world in search of inspiration for her designs. She visits stores, market fairs and factories seeking out materials and accessories that she then puts together into bold combinations of colors and fabrics. She has made a name for herself both at home and abroad.

Sofas and chairs from the Bluckberry label she created are available at designer stores in Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Russia and Nordic countries.

Patchwork is commonly associated with American hippie culture, but it is actually an old technique in which scraps of fabrics with different patterns, but similar in shape, are sewn together into clothes, tapestries and upholstery. For quite a while, patchwork was a somewhat forgotten technique, but it has recently resurfaced and inspired famous designers such as Dolce Gabbana, Emanuel Ungaro, Patricia Urqiola and the Doshi Levien studio. In Poland, patchwork has been embraced by several designers who produce remarkable and unique patchwork items.

Borowska says her line of patchwork furniture and accessories is a response to drab city streets, monotonous colors and cold, industrial interiors. “Besides, whoever buys Bluckberry furniture knows they will never see an identical item in any other interior anywhere else in the world,” said Borowska. “I want to make sure that the furniture and decorative objects I design are not only easy on the eye, but also inspire people to devise a style of their own, which is why I never impose anything on my customers. Instead, I am curious to explore their expectations, ideas and invention.” Borowska believes it is her customers who know best what their tastes and needs are—and that her role is to be a guide in the search for a solution that best meets their individual needs.

Borowska is working on a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, decorations, accessories and objects of everyday use designed to please the most demanding customers. The collection, called OnlyOneDesign, will comprise exceptional items that can be passed from generation to generation as family keepsakes.

Most products designed by Borowska are manufactured in Europe in conformity with ISO standards. They are TÜV-certified and come with a producer’s warranty. They can be viewed at a gallery in Cracow at 33 Miodowa St. and at
