Minimoderns festival rug

Towards the end of last year, we showed you Minimoderns' fabulous festival wallpaper, a quirky design inspired by the Festival of Britain. If you were a fan of that design but have run out of surfaces to paper, take a look at their festival rug

It's the same great design transferred onto a hand-tufted rug. All the icons are there, from Skylon to the Dome of Discovery to the Royal Festival Hall and it would create a great focal point to a room. 

Each rug is 100% wool and made to order, all adding up to its £495 price tag.

Skylon print by Paul Catherall

This Skylon print by Paul Catherall is another striking piece of artwork created to mark the 60th anniversary of Festival of Britain.

The Skylon tower was built as part of the Festival of Britain but lasted only a year before being taken down It now just survives on London's Southbank as the name of the Royal Festival Hall resturant. Catherall's linocut makes it look like the futuristic creation it must have appeared like back then – he says he was aiming to capture the adventure and spirit of optimism of the festival. The colours used are perfect to reflect the period of Skylon and help create a striking piece of artwork. 

The print is limited to 60 and costs £195.
