Clare Nicolson new cushion collection


Clare Nicolson has frequently popped up on this site, for her vintage-inspired fabrics. It's been a while since we featured anything of her work, so it's a pleasure to see her new cushion collection.

The new designs move away a bit from her usual floral patterns. However, there's still a definite retro feel to her designs just, like the rectangle cushion pictured above, they focus on geometric designs instead. If you liked her other work, fear not – the new collection still includes one of her trademark bird designs, while each of the cushions still is finished with a vintage fabric reverse. 

The cushions cost £50 each.

Pop cushions

These Pop Art cushions from Dwell are a simple way to get some of the art movement's impact for your home.

There are three different styles available, all clearly influenced by the comic style of Roy Lichtenstein. One illustrates the Lichtenstein style distressed heroine, another cushion shows the classic hero and finally the last cushion features the typical action moment. Each design is printed onto a cotton fabric cover. However, if you really like the look of these pieces, each design is also available printed on canvas ready for display. 

The cushions cost £24.95 each, while the canvases cost £59.

Vintage family photo cushions from Zoe de Las Cases

Looking for something more unusual to put onto your sofa? Take a look at Zoe de Las Cases' cushions which are based on vintage family photos.

The Paris-based designer has printed the photos onto fabric and shaped into a cushion. Though the subjects of the photographs are unknown, they will instantly remind you of your own old family snapshots. The design pictured is called cousins and there's also a design based on a group of sisters. The nostalgic subject matter is further enhanced by the colour tinting of the image. 

The cushion costs £23.75.
