Seventies racer cushion from Couverture

Seventies racer cushoin
This Seventies racer cushion from Couverture combines a bizarre mixture of the hand-made, the luxurious and the world of retro cars.

The cushion features a depiction of a classic 70s car – not your usual illustration however, as this one has been hand-created, using needlepoint. The touch of luxury is added with the pure feather inner pad and the velvet back to the cushion. 

And, yes, also a luxurious price. This cushion costs £139.

Camper van needlepoint kit

Camper van needlepoint

Long gone are the days when craft sets focused on reproducing only twee images of kittens or flowers. There's an increasing range of kits featuring more contemporary designs that you might actually want to have in your home when finished, such as this VW camper van needlepoint kit.

You'll probably recognise the illustration as one of Pearl & Earl's, now recreated in wool, complete with a colourful stripy background. The kit contains everything you'll need to recreate it: 10hpi (holes per inch) canvas, which is great for beginners, wool, needles and chart and, probably most importantly, instructions.

The kit uses high quality materials which is reflected in the price of £60.
