The Product: Purple silk cushions in luxury hand-woven Ikat
One of the prettiest colour combinations we have seen in a silk ikat weave, these Wedgwood blue, peach and purple ikat cushions are just crying out for a chic bedroom chair or chaise longue! They’d also be perfect, paired up on a bed. Elegant, unusual and an eye-catching pattern accent for calm, restful room schemes.
Striking, silk ikat cushions from the Rosanna Lonsdale range are crafted from hand-dyed fabric that is woven in Uzbekistan to ancient textile designs. Cushions are then made up in London by hand. The decorative silk front (with cotton woven in for strength) is backed in plain, sand-coloured cotton and trimmed with pale blue, satin piping.
The pattern runs horizontally on rectangular cushions, while the pattern may run vertically or horizontally on the square cushions depending on the design. Square cushions include a discreet seam (due to the limited width of the traditional looms upon which the fabric is woven).
Pattern placement varies from cushion to cushion – this is the eclectic nature and charm of ikat fabrics. In fact, ikat patterns were traditionally used together to create an exotic, vibrant display, rich in colour and pattern. If you wish to purchase two cushions to sit specifically as a pair (for a sofa or bed for example), please note ‘PAIR’ in the notes section on the checkout page. We will then ensure they sit beautifully as such.
We say, draw out your inner stylist and style/position them however you wish! Browse the styled pics in other colourways here too for inspiration. We mentioned beds above as a perfect destination for these exquisitely pretty cushions. Cocooning ‘winged’ headboards – whether curved and shapely or smart and linear – would be a great backdrop for these chic and elegant cushions. Check out the rather fabulous Ben Whistler headboard range for a variety of options…
Square cushions measure 50cm x 50cm. Rectangular cushions measure 40cm x 60cm. Both come with luxury, curled, white duck feather cushion pads with a 100% cotton cover. Cushion covers are dry clean only. Keep away from direct sunlight as colours may fade.
