The Product: Japanese print cushions ‘Sakori’ in indigo
Luxury linen Indigo blue Japanese print cushions provide a deep, inky take on a distinctive and timeless aesthetic.
The simple, graphic pattern was first created as a linocut. Designed in-house at the Rapture & Wright studio, the design is transferred onto screens, ready for hand-printing. 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 to plain-upholstered occasional or accent chairs with patterned, rectangular cushions. These also provide lumbar support. 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. Deep blues – such as this indigo hue – are a great foil to brighter shades.Likewise, team with bolder, figurative designs on ‘statement’ cushions.
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 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 indigo blue Japanese print 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 co-ordinate with the ‘Iznik’ Middle Eastern-inspired cushion collection, also by Rapture & Wright and available through us.
