a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Laura Fletcher Textiles launch their first collection of beautiful hand-made cushions, lamp shades and throws designed and woven in Suffolk. The contemporary designs feature striking stripes woven in linen, wool and cotton to create different textures and colours. Designer Laura Fletcher is influenced by her photographs and paintings of the natural world:
“My designs evoke childhood memories from walks in Chalkney woods and Marks Hall arboretum and poking pebbles through gaps in the weathered breakwater at Camber Sands. Everything from tree bark to items found on the beach”
It is these colours, proportions and textures that find their way into the woven cushion collection – the result is truly unique and truly English. Her collection includes a range of woven cushions, throws and lamp shades.
