The Product: Old Gold linen patterned cushions in ‘Iznik’
These linen patterned cushions, available in two sizes, add an eclectic note to armchairs, side chairs, sofas, beds, and upholstered, bench seats. Click and scroll here for other colourways illustrating the finished cushions.
This chic, linen 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. The Old Gold ground cloth is teamed with the palest baby blue to create an unusual but successful and decidedly elegant colour combination.
Firstly, decorative, rectangular cushions work well on plain-upholstered occasional or accent chairs. They provide eye-catching 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. The linen patterned cushions in this colourway would look spectacular against mid-blue velvet or blue, textural woven sofa upholstery.
Secondly, combine 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…
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. Moreover, don’t forget bold, ‘wow’ cushions that truly make a statement. Unique, vintage or original designs handmade from ethnic textiles for example. Vibrant South American textiles are a case in point. Both A Rum Fellow and Wicklewood have fabulous ranges to explore online.
The square Iznik cushion measures 50cm x 50cm. The rectangular Iznik cushion measures 30cm x 50cm. Cushions come with co-ordinating, plain piping, a feather pad, and a concealed zip. Dry clean only.
