Here is some more information on the Frank, Ernest & Henry Pouffe from SCP:


In 2009 Donna Wilson came up with a playful response to the problem of occasional seating with a range of three low-lying pouffes, designed to bring a little softness, intimacy and colour into the home. Each pouffe is made by hand stuffing Calico bags with 100% recycled PET fibre and upholstering them with the knitted panels, reminiscent of segments of an orange.

The Braid upholstery is also designed by Donna Wilson and knitted in Scotland from 100% lamb’s wool using a traditional Fairisle knitting technique. Also available in Nos Da, Bora Da, Zig Zag and Treecloud fabric. The pouffes are one of the many designs by Donna Wilson for SCP. Other designs include the Nos Da and Bora Da collection, Bertha armchair, Motley ottoman, Munro sofa and Sprig bone china collection. Designed in Hackney, made in Norfolk.
