I just love how today’s designers are using traditional embroidery techniques in totally non-traditional ways. Like say, embroidered Corian furniture from Yaroslav Galant.
In the top photo you might be forgiven for thinking the design is printed on the furniture, given that Corian is a hard molded surface, but you can see in the second photo the embroidery designs were actually applied through holes added to the hard material. The intricate designs themselves were made to celebrate traditional Ukrainian embroidery.
