Vintage Cushions’ Liberty London Range

Posted on Mar 12, 2016 by

Designer, Nichollette Yardley-Moore of Vintage Cushions, has joined up with Liberty London to release a new ‘Rule Britannia’ collection. Her work utilises “fabrics, scarves and trimmings as well as glorious old buttons” to produce bold, retro style cushions. The Liberty collaboration, which is due out soon, focuses particularly on British heritage.

Featuring original vintage materials from the 1960s and 1970s, this cushion depicts iconic London images and points of interest in and around the City of London in olden times. It also features a lovely satin trim and a vintage button on the zip pull.

Another key moment in British history is displayed on this vibrant original vintage fabric which commemorates the Queen’s 1953 coronation. The event was marked by the increased production of British-made textiles.

This rare 1950s silk was originally produced to celebrate two monumental moments in British history. The front depicts the coronation of King George V1 and Queen Elizabeth. On the opposite side, another commemorative design marked the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953.

These striking cushions make an eye-catching addition to any room. Each is truly unique and a fascinating conversation point with guests.

Liberty will soon be stocking a selection of the Rule Britannia collection. Check back here in the near future for updates! In the meantime, you can browse the ever changing collection of distinctive designs by Nichollette Yardley-Moore on the Vintage Cushions website.
