The Product: Grey Japanese cushions ‘Sakori’ linen in ash
Smart, hand-printed linen, grey, Japanese cushions offer a subtle, neutral take on a distinctive and timeless aesthetic.
This simple, graphic pattern was first created as a linocut. Designed in-house at the Rapture & Wright studio, the design was then transferred onto screens, ready for the hand-printing process. A Japanese textile dating from the 18th Century inspired the design. This is hand-printed onto soft, bleached linen. Co-ordinating cushion piping is in plain, ‘String’ linen.
Pair symmetrically on a sofa or bed. Add interest and provide lumbar support with patterned, rectangular cushions on plain-upholstered occasional or accent chairs. Check available space to ensure the cushion fits across the back of your seat. High-backed, wing chairs or capacious, modern side chairs are good candidates.
Combine sofa cushions in toning or contrasting fabrics. Layering creates depth and interest. Likewise, team with bolder, figurative designs on ‘statement’ cushions. Grey – such as this ‘ash’ grey colour – is a great neutral to utilize in a bolder scheme.
Top tip! Most importantly, you don’t have to dress your sofa solely with supplementary scatter cushions that match the upholstery. These are often optional when buying a fixed-back sofa. Aim for an eclectic look by creating your own ‘cast of cushions.’ Assemble styles from different fabric houses in complementary or contrasting hues. Likewise, think of textural layering. Moreover, don’t forget bold, ‘wow’ cushions that make a statement. For instance, ethnic textiles – South American wovens, for example – are available as unique, vintage or original designs. A Rum Fellow and Wicklewood have brilliant ranges to explore online.
The grey Japanese cushions come in two sizes and in a variety of colourways. See here for alternative colourways. The square cushion measures 50cm x 50cm. The rectangular cushion measures 30cm x 50cm. Cushions arrive with co-ordinating, plain piping, a feather pad, and a concealed zip. Dry clean only. Available colourways coordinate with the ‘Iznik’ Middle Eastern-inspired cushion collection, also by Rapture & Wright and available through us.
