The changing seasons provide the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into your interiors. Tired, lacklustre spaces can be rejuvenated with ease by introducing colourful, printed or patterned soft furnishings. Statement cushions are perhaps one of the easiest ways to achieve this and create an inviting, comfortable room.
 
As we transition into Summer, we're looking for ways to incorporate elements of pattern and colour into our interiors. The globally-inspired designs found in our recent collection, Damascene, mirror this seasonal transition with their rich yet understated colours. The collection combines trailing florals, detailed geometrics and intricate patterns while maintaining Birdie's signature sense of balance and harmony. 
 
For those looking to inject colour, pattern and interest into their home for Summer, statement cushions provide the perfect solution. Our Damascene cushions are key pieces from the collection and allow you to introduce both bold patterns or rich textures.
 
With an array of cushion designs available in mossy greens, muted raspberry and rose pink, our SS21 cushion collection effortlessly introduces globally-inspired colour, prints and textures into both traditional and contemporary homes

 

The Damascene Collection: Statement Cushions 

Our SS21 collection features an array of statement cushions incorporating a variety of techniques such as block print and embroidery which add texture and layers to your home. Use our cushions to create effortlessly balanced schemes on sofas, beds and armchairs to create a perfectly curated arrangement.

Adana Geometric Cushion

Geometric Cushions Birdie Fortescue

Our Adana geometric cushion is key piece in The Damascene collection. Block printed and hand finished with delicate embroidered details, it will add extra texture to an arrangement.
 
Inspiration for the Adana cushion came from the stunning Iznik tiles that adorn the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Here, richly patterned tiles stretch from floor to ceiling  which have inspired the geometric design of our Adana cushion. In addition to the playful pink colourway seen above, the Adana is also available in green and blue.  
  
Created by artisans in India exclusively for Birdie Fortescue, it works perfectly paired on a bed or a sofa with our Cintamani embroidered and Ankara stripe velvet cushions.
 

Anatolia Floral Cushion

Floral outdoor cushions

Our Anatolia print has been used to create both indoor and outdoor cushions. Block-printed in linen on both sides and finished with piping in a soft green for indoors, it is printed on water resistant cotton and self piped for outside. The  Anatolia cushion is versatile yet easy to style.  The floral design is timeless, yet fresh and perfect for summer. It is reminiscent of the English country house look, while being utterly fresh and original.
 
For a summer sofa refresh, we like to style the Anatolia with our Cintamani embroidered velvet and Adana block printed cushions.
 

Cini Geometric Cushion

Geometric cushions | Birdie Fortescue cushions luxury homewareThe Cini cushion with its geometric, eye-catching design is another statement cushion in our collection.   Brightening any space, it offers a striking aesthetic while being restrained enough to pair with an existing scheme.

 
The design is a contemporary interpretation of the Chinese influence on early Iznik ceramics. The intricately embroidered cushion is backed in dyed linen and finished with coordinating piping. Available in Forest Shade, Rosette and Blue Shadow, it will suit any interior.
 
Use our Cini in a selection of scatter cushions to add texture and interest to an existing sofa scheme. Alternatively, use it as a statement cushion on a favourite  armchair, or pair with our luxurious Cintamani embroidered velvet cushion to create a relaxed, inviting seating area.
