Autumn Art Giveaway

29 Feb, 2024

How art inspired our autumn collection

For our autumn 2024 seasonal range, our creative team used art as their inspiration, from different art movements and eras to artistic styles and mixed media. Our seasonal colours were inspired by rich tones from landscape oil paintings, with patterns inspired by art nouveau and folk art, and a range of art materials from graphite and acrylic to watercolour paintings. Two of our beautiful autumn cushion covers, Terrain and Dreamscape, started life as original artworks painted in-house by one of our team. Read on to discover more about these beautiful paintings and how to win one for your own home, in our exclusive Cotton Club giveaway.

The inspiration behind the designs

We asked our talented in-house Senior Textile Designer, Zoe about the inspiration for her beautiful paintings.
“For our autumn collection we were inspired by art as a general theme; the use of different mediums like watercolour, sketchy pencil and paint texture, as well as tones from nature. The colours of our velvet range this autumn are beautiful landscape tones of sienna, forest green, lagoon blue and charcoal. We wanted to create two abstract landscape artworks in these colours that could be printed onto linen for accent cushions within the range. ‘Terrain’ is more of a gestural abstract in green tones, and ‘Dreamscape’ features abstract rolling hills with a dreamy blue grey skyscape”.


Transforming beautiful art into luxurious homeware

Our Dreamscape Square Cushion Cover and Terrain Rectangle Cushion Cover feature Zoe’s original paintings. Capturing the beauty of New Zealand’s wild landscapes and dramatic skies, her artworks have been digitally printed onto pure linen fabric, which retains the textural brushstrokes and tones of the painting. The palette in moody, rich hues is designed to coordinate effortlessly with plains, neutrals and the bolder colours of our autumn collection. Our Dreamscape and Terrain cushion covers will sit comfortably together or mixed with plain velvet or cotton cushion covers on your sofa or bed for beautiful styling.


Designed to go with…..

Style our Terrain or Dreamscape cushion cover with our Renaissance Velvets and Loft Linen bedding, picking out the matching sienna hues for a cohesive look. The layered design of our Terrain and Dreamscape cushion covers offer gentle pattern and colour for elevating colour blocked bedding, adding interest and beauty to any look. Our Renaissance Velvet bedding is crafted from pure cotton velvet with hand-stitched quilting detail for beautiful texture and is available in quilts and matching pillowcases in warm sienna, lagoon blue, forest green and classic charcoal.
