Puff My Pillow
People often ask “So what do you do for a living?” I reply, “I’m a designer, interiors mainly”, because I know as soon as I say the alternative “I’m an interior designer”, I will be greeted by a friendly smile and a response similar to, “wow that must be fun/exciting/keep you busy etc, etc” but a knowing look that also tells me that my new acquaintance is thinking “so you puff pillows for a living then?!”
I’m not going to dwell on this but what I will say is that the final day of dressing a project are always terrific fun and… well I’ll just tell you as no-one else is listening, but there’s nothing more fun than puffing the odd pillow!
Here are some of my favourites at the moment…
Alice Liberty Cushion by La Cerise Sur Le Gateau.
£69 John Lewis
I love the use of digital print here juxtaposed with an archived Liberty print, gorgeous. I want, I need, I must have.
G Plan Vintage Scatter Cushion
£45 John Lewis
In collaboration with Hemingway Design, G Plan Vintage have designed a super cool retro range of furnishings inspired by classic G Plan sofas and chairs from the 50s and 60s. Filled with 100% duck feather for maximum lounging comfort.
Rabbit Spot on Stone Linen Cushion
£46.75 (sale price) Thornback & Peel
Stone linen cushion hand printed with pale grey polka dots and a grey rabbit. There are no words, I simply adore everything from Thornback & Peel, j’adore.
Navy Deco Pillow
Currently unavailable, expected in Autumn 2013.
A linen/cotton pillow with that Chanel inspired edge to it, I really enjoy the way Caitlin’s textiles are bold, clean and classic at the same time. Caitlin is based in the US but ships internationally so shouldn’t stop you putting in your orders for this stunning pillow.
Add some playful fun to your room with this cheery Topsy elephant cushion. Habitat can always be relied on to add some design savvy pieces to your home, bang on trend and affordable too.
£58 Imogen Heath
Saving the best until last here, Imogen Heath is one of the UK’s most talented creatives and in the words of our youth, this ‘Dahlia’ cushion is totes-amaze. A delicate hand drawn floral affair with beautiful splashes of colour. Now who wouldn’t want to puff this little beauty up?
