Great Arthur Cushion

The straight lines of modernist architecture meets the cosy comfort of a cushion: that's what you get with these new Barbican and Golden Lane-inspired cushions from Things You Can Buy

The cushions feature two designs, inspired by their favourite London tower blocks, both the work of Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. Pictured is the cushion which uses the colourful facade of Great Arthur as a pattern. Part of the Golden Lane Estate, this tower block was built in the 1950s (and one of the one-bed flats was featured on WowHaus last year).

The other design uses the the Cromwell tower block from the Barbican Estate for its inspiration. Built in 1973, it makes for a striking grey, black and turquoise design. 

Printed onto cotton drill, the cushions cost £48 each – considerably cheaper than buying yourself a flat in the real thing.
