Bargello to the uninitiated (which included me until I looked it up just now) is a type of needlepoint that uses flat stitches laid in a geometric pattern. The style was revived in the 1960 and certainly has a look you would associate with that period, but it could actually date back to the 17th century and takes its name from series of chairs found in the Bargello palace in Florence. The bright colours of Jonathan Adler’s Bargello cushions are typical of his psychedelic-influenced work, but this use of colour is also typical of the original Bargello style too. There is an array of patterns and colours to choose from with designs including waves, asterisks, zig zags and flames. Prices range from £120 to £175 depending on the pattern and size of the cushion.
