1. Choose Woven Fabrics For Touchable Texture
A gently patterned cushion in a woven fabric can bring much-needed texture and comfort to a room, providing contrast to larger or more intricate prints, as in the beautiful living space above. All of Christopher Farr Cloth’s designs are hand screen-printed at a family business in the UK, while the woven textiles are produced in European artisanal mills, exploring new weave structures and innovative yarn spinning.
2. Have An Interior Designer’s Eye For Detail By Choosing Cushions With Trimmings
Christopher Farr Cloth’s cushion collection can give your rooms that professionally designed, bespoke look. It may be ready-made, but it is produced by a very selective group of craftsmen, and includes timeless weave designs in more muted tones alongside the bold and playful printed cushions, featuring whimsical trims that catch the eye. Passementerie – here the Trapeze border in jute and cotton – gives a timeless, neutral cushion a playful twist.
3. Create Intriguing Contrast With Patterns And Plains
The variety of designs and colourways within the Christopher Farr Cloth collection means that there is a perfect cushion for every room, including coordinating plains and patterns. This allows you to create a colour and pattern scheme that is entirely unique to your home, and each room. Here, the ever-popular subtle woven stripe of Hippie by Cloth Studio is the perfect foil for renowned interior designer Kit Kemp’s Lost and Found, a classic rework of a cotton ticking textile.
4. Combine Ready-Made Cushions With Bespoke Pieces
Perhaps you are just looking for a few finishing touches to complete a room? Whether you have used Christopher Farr Cloth fabrics and wallpapers to curate a nearly-there room scheme or simply want to pep up and add that final flourish to a pre-existing space, ready-made cushions are a clever way to do so, adding colour, pattern, texture, detailing and a sense of comfort in one. The bold Nomad cushion, from a collaboration with And Objects, is the best way to make a statement: its chunky stripe contrasts ravishingly with the beautiful ombre trim.
5. Bring The Indoors Outside
Autumn may be in full swing, but if you’re already looking forward to cosy evenings around the firepit next summer, why not dress your outdoor space to be as beautiful as your rooms indoors? Christopher Farr Cloth’s ready-made cushion Spring collection will include designs in performance fabrics, perfectly suited to withstand a light rain shower, and easy to store away in bad weather, ready to brighten your garden again when the sun shines.
