Contemporary cushion for a modern home

Contemporary cushion

Cushions are one of the easiest ways of updating the look of a sofa, chair or bed and we’re constantly on the lookout for new designs.

This cushion design – Among The Trees – from textiles company Kitty McCall (run by London-based print designer, Catherine Nice) is buzzing with colour and energy. It has a fresh and contemporary feel to it and is unlike any other cushion design we’ve featured before.

The printed design is, “inspired by layered patterning created while drawing with no fixed starting point or end,” and each cushion is unique.

At £69, Among the Trees is not a cheap cushion, but it is unusual and there’s plenty of depth and interest to keep drawing your eyes back to it.

Perpetua cushion designed by Sanderson

1950s inspired design

Like their popular Dandelion Clocks range of soft furnishings and homeware products, the Perpetua design is another of Sanderson’s prints that is influenced by retro 1950s designs.

The inspiration for Perpetua came from a design found in the Sanderson archive, originally produced in 1953. It’s evolved into a simple but effective design that features stylised shapes representing flowerheads and solid and dotted lines forming stems.

The design and style successfully achieves a modern and contemporary look and works very well in interior design today.

The Perpetua cushion is available in two colourways from John Lewis, including this lovely purple cassis colour.

The Sanderson Perpetua cushion is priced at £35 and comes filled with a feather pad.
