The Product: Colourful cushions with Australian Aboriginal art print in orange and burgundy
These colourful cushions are handmade from an indigenous Australian Aboriginal art print on linen teamed with a jaunty, scallop-edge trim in orange and burgundy. The design itself depicts the plants, bush foods and medicines through the changing light of the day and the seasons, central to the ancient, indigenous Australian culture and lifestyle.
This particular fabric design was created from original artwork by indigenous Australian Aboriginal artist Rosie Ngwarraye Ross. The canvas painting was re-scaled for fabric by specialist art & design studio Bay Gallery Home. The studio supports indigenous Aboriginal communities by ensuring a proportion of sales go back to the artists. Hence, this helps maintain the artists’ connections with their indigenous lands.
Styling ideas for colourful cushions?
Bold, colourful cushions liven up wooden benches, sofas or armchairs. This intense, colour-pop palette lends itself to blond or dark-wood furniture – a contemporary framed wooden sofa for example. It would also add a pop of bold colour to upholstery in soft, blue or paler pink (try Arlo & Jacob or Bo Concept for some great, contemporary sofa shapes and a vast range of upholstery options).
