Design of the Day – Cheeky 50’s pin-up cushions from Crumpet and Skirt

I just adore these retro pin-up girl cushions created by Crumpet & Skirt designer Elizabeth Pinnock. Based in London, Elizabeth turned to creating high quality vintage products after her dreams of becoming a Hollywood actress didn’t take off. I think her saucy designs have definitely taken off in my books!

The naughty expressions of the models and 1950’s style would add a cheeky lift  to any chic pad and certainly catch a guests attention. She’s also designed a range of mugs, greeting cards, tea towels and seduced Gok Wan who used her cushions for his Clothes Road Show program earlier this year.

Crumpet & Skirt designs are available in many shops and online so you won’t have a problem trying to snatch a few. You can buy the cushions for around £37 on Brighton POD who are amazing.

Design of the Day – Inject some life into a room with these funky 3D cushions

Rebecca Barton’s cushions instantly caught my eye with their bright array of colours and 3D like designs. What’s even more attractive about Rebecca’s pieces is they’re all bespoke and made to order from a small studio in Kent, using fabrics based in England and based on a strong ethical ethos.You can even specify colours, size and delivery time if you wish!

All the cushions are made from quality natural materials such as linen, silk, wool felt and cotton. There are different styles that you can choose from (which would look fab in any room),  from contemporary and floral, to plain and wood grain, you’re spoiled for choice.

As a mum of three I don’t know how she fits in the time to create such wonderful cushions. If you’re as much in love with Rebecca’s designs as I am, you can order from her website www.cushlab.co.uk or through Brighton POD, (which I’m addicted too!)
