Paustian SOFT is a collection of throws and pillows designed exclusively for Paustian by Danish textile designer Helene Blanche.
The collection takes its point of departure in the classic ‘horse cloth’ textile, that the founder of Paustian, Ole Paustian, started using back in the 1960’s in interiors and for furniture – and by the way was the inspiration for the iconic Paustian Modular Sofa from 1969.
BABY ALPACA WOOL
The SOFT collection is woven in pure baby alpaca wool from Peru. Using a minimalistic and sophisticated take, Helene Blanche has redefined the softly textured throws by creating two new patterns, “Stripes” and “Plain“, while still maintaining the classic “Checks”. All three designs in the SOFT collection emit classic elegance and have a simple, yet luxurious feel. The throws are suitable for use in a wide variety of interiors and work beautifully together in a multitude of combinations due to the subtle colour scheme, which emanates freshness, yet establishes an emotional depth. The patterns have a modern look with an artisan finish, the substance of which becomes exceptionally clear when the patterns are viewed and used together.

Helene Blanche is a Danish textile designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Intrigued by woven fabric and the way a single thread moves to create a Structural repetition, it is this textural rhythm and vibrant dynamic that inspires her:
“I enjoy working with such basic, yet highly sophisticated patterns and I feel at home in the sphere between Cubist art and my historical Parisian textile samples”.
Helene Blanche is responsible for the creative direction of Tapet-Cafe alongside designing their in-house textile and wallpaper collections. Her collections are sold exclusively at Tapet-Cafe in Denmark, and from a selection of handpicked international showrooms, particularly in Paris, London, Stockholm, Moscow and Sydney.
