In the making
Weaving is a big part of our making heritage here in Britain, and we’re proud to say that we’re partnering with a couple of UK mills that are carrying on that tradition to create many of our throws and cushions. Elland was created by a Bristol-based micro mill who specialise in contemporary design combined with traditional manufacturing, and is woven by a larger mill in Lancashire.
Linen, cotton and wool are all natural materials which are breathable, strong and wonderfully soft to the touch. The proportion of wool is very small because, although it adds an appealing downy texture, we know that some people can find it mildly tickly and we wanted this to be a cushion suitable for sitting against with bare arms in summer.
Burnt Sienna is a rich and earthy terracotta colour (we’ve used two variations of it in the stripes, one more red and the other more brown and yellow based) but it’s lightened and made softer by combining it with the creamy white ground on this cushion. It’ll pair just as well with other colourful hues (like Saffron and Flax Blue) as it will with neutrals.
All our cushions are finished with concealed zips in a matching colour, with generously full (but not overstuffed) duck feather pads, and with our signature detail: a small tan leather tab stamped with the Neptune ‘N’ and sewn onto the bottom corner.
Small-ish square cushions like this one are not only perfect for layering in front of larger scatter cushions on a sofa, but they’re also the ideal size for adding softness to wooden dining chairs and benches. On armchairs as well, they’ll cushion without taking up too much of the seat.
Free for all orders over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
If your order is available now, we’ll deliver it between 3-5 days of your order being placed.
If your order is not available straight away, an estimated date will be indicated above and at checkout. We’ll then get in touch nearer the estimated date to arrange a specific time.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Need to knows
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make them as small as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres.
All the feathers in the cushion pad are ethically-sourced.
If you’d like to buy this cushion cover without the feather inner, just pop into one of our stores or get in touch.
The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
