I’ve never been that interested in cushions in the past. If you had told me five years ago that I would be designing cushions for John Lewis and The New Craftsmen I would have been astounded… not for any reason other than I’ve never particularly liked them before. Now I find myself treating my couch and bed at home as ever-changing-geometric-colour-sketch-books. A visual playground shifting in hue and form depending on my mood. At the moment I’ve got a thing about triangles…not sure why but I’m drawn to them. When I look at my couch right now I see the interplay between line, triangle, star and orb and despite the odds it seems to work together. They in turn remind me of the three Herbert Bayer prints I have hanging on the adjacent wall. In fact the whole corner of the room is a cacophony of strong geometric shape; while sitting on the geometric cushions you can look at the geometric prints and savour the joys of…… well….. geometry.
(I think triangles are the next big thing for 2013)
