The Product: Black and white cushions in ‘Iznik’ hand-printed linen
These black and white cushions combine an inky-black, kohl with taupe and are available in two sizes. They add a crisp, neutral yet eclectic note to armchairs, side chairs, sofas, beds, and upholstered bench seats. Click and scroll here for other colourways illustrating the finished cushions.
The chic, linen black and white cushions print was designed by Rapture & Wright and inspired by a fragment of decorative glazed pottery from 14th century Syria. The pattern is hand-printed onto soft, bleached linen. Cushions are piped in co-ordinating, plain, ‘String’ linen.
Firstly, decorative, rectangular cushions work well on plain-upholstered occasional or accent chairs. They provide pattern and colour. They are also great for lumbar support. Check the available space to ensure the cushion fits comfortably across the back of your seat. High-backed, wing chairs or capacious, modern side chairs are good candidates.
Secondly, combine a pair of square cushions with others in toning or contrasting plain and patterned fabrics. This will add textural contrast and help create a relaxed, informal look. I can imagine this design dressing a simple, elegant, loose-covered sofa such as the ‘Jackson’ from Arlo & Jacob. Alternatively, they’d sit happily on a curvaceous, velvet sofa.
Top tip! Never feel you have to dress your sofa with supplementary scatter cushions that match the upholstery fabric alone. These are usually optional add-ons when buying a new, fixed-back sofa. You can achieve an eclectic, original look by creating your own ‘cast of cushions.’ Assemble a variety of styles from different fabric houses in complementary or contrasting hues.
