The very own Tom Dixon said that the inspiration behind the deep pile cushions included urban perspective sketches and hippy wall hangings from the 1970’s. The combination of the 70’s style and the Indian Art produced a stunning final result.

We can also highlight the cushions that are part of the Geo Family, which are embroidered with geology-inspired illustrations. These products recall rock formations and layered sediment. The bold patterns are embroidered onto two white cushions and a double-sided throw using black thread. They will look amazing in any modern living room!
