The Product: Crewel work cushion covers handmade in India.
Two vibrant embroidered crewel work cushion covers with pads, both with a chartreuse geometric background. The chartreuse is complemented by soft turquoise and chocolate brown on the rectangular lumbar cushion. This combination creates a fresh, original colour palette. The square cushion displays a chocolate, cream and chartreuse geometric repeat. The cushions are made from a hand-embroidered panel of Kashmiri crewelwork, sourced in India.
It’s always a delight when we receive samples for our photoshoots. Often, designs were selected months previously. Chosen for looks and style? Yes. But also for quality, originality and a fascinating, authentic backstory. These crewelwork cushions from Samarkand Design do not disappoint. They are beautifully handmade. A decorative panel of neatly hand-embroidered, Indian, crewelwork adorns the front. The reverse is made using sturdy, co-ordinating cream cotton. This same cotton is also used for the piping.
We love the eclectic, ethnic feel of these crewel work cushion covers. Their tailored looks mean they are equally at home in relaxed, ‘Boho’ surroundings and smart, elegant drawing-rooms.
The textural nature of crewelwork contrasts well with plain velvet or linen-look upholstery. This works on both traditional and contemporary furniture styles. Try Heals, Bo Concept, or Arlo & Jacob for a good range of sofa silhouettes.
Never feel you must dress your sofa with supplementary scatter cushions to match upholstery. Often, these are optional add-ons when buying a new sofa. Always, create an original look. Furthermore, aim to assemble your own ‘cast of cushions’. Buy from different fabric houses. Create the perfect look and comfort level.
