Desert Winds: Artisan Throws and Cushions For Stylish Interiors
It seems the trend for artisan themed interiors has worked its way back round again this year. For me, they've always been timeless and instantly elevate a room with colour and craftsmanship, which is why they have such staying power.
Meet our new collection of homeware textiles. The Desert Winds collection is a stunning range of handcrafted luxury throws and cushions for stylish interiors. Crafted on traditional pit looms by desert weavers in the remote Thar Desert of Rajasthan, this range combines striking colour and tribal designs prevalent in Rajasthani weaving techniques. The range is designed to add fresh colourful accents, globally inspired charm and a somewhat raw, organic influence that instantly refreshes and updates.
Drape a throw over a piece of furniture for that touch-me artisan look or at the bottom of your bed for a colourful focal point that works well with matching or mismatched cushions. Great for updating a room, the geometric patterns and tactile fringing add versatility and a well travelled look to your home. Don't be afraid to go with colour and be bold. The throws double up as rugs. Have fun with the natural weave of patterns by layering rugs by a fireplace or around seating areas. Ideal for creating eye-catching interest from the ground - up.
Here are just some of our favourites that we think you'll love.
Perfectly for snuggling, lounging or just adding a decorative twist to a minimal colour scheme, our multi-functional throws look great spread over a bed and can also be used as rugs. Traditionally used as protective shawls or pattu's to keep out the bitter desert winds, our throws feature striking Rajasthani geometric patterns with fringed edges.
Our monochrome collection features black and white throws and cushions. If you're into minimal sophistication, this collection adds drama and a tonal colour scheme. Of course mixing them up will appeal to the maximalists out there! Drape over the arm of a sofa, place diagonally over a corner or spreading over the back of the sofa instantly transforms the look.
Looking to spruce up an old, tired room? Add a few cushions! Available in two sizes, our large and regular cushions pull together all the other elements of a room, harmonising and bringing order to busy living rooms or restoring calm to a messy bedroom. Equally if you're not loving your sofa like you used to, but getting a new one is not an option, then disguising an old sofa with lots of cushions is a great way of literally minimising its impact on the room. Mix and match lots of cushions, add a throw or two and instantly you have a bohemian look. For a more neat less busy look, arrange monochromatic cushions neatly with throws spread over corners.
