The gorgeous Stripe Story Cushion is a real statement piece from the Marie Murphy Studio collection. You will love its bold geometric pattern and smart colour combination, as well as the beautiful linen it’s printed onto. This elegant cushion features bold lines and smart dark navy & ochre colours. This makes it easy to use in a variety of different rooms and styles.
For this piece, Marie took inspiration from the geometric artwork of British artist Bridget Reily, who spearheaded the innovative ‘op-art’ movement in the 1960s. This featured patterns and designs which created optical illusions. You can certainly see the influence of this style in the Stripe Story Cushion.
Marie is passionate not only about design, but most importantly about producing her collection responsibly and sustainably. Therefore, she works only with British artisans and specialist workshops to produce her pieces. For example, the fabric for this cushion was printed in Worcestershire, then sewn and finished by Marie and her seamstress, making it ready for its new home.
Marie has created a truly stunning cushion which you will certainly enjoy displaying in your home. Imagine it on your sofa or armchair, or even as a pair beautifully arranged on a bed. Display it on it own or combine it with other pieces from the Marie Murphy Studio collection available at The Decorcafe.
A Little About Marie Murphy Studio
Marie Murphy is an illustrator and surface pattern designer based in Brighton, England. Designs usually begin as ideas in a sketchbook with a line drawing or with the use of bold blocks of colour. She then translates these into digital patterns, prints and embroidery. Marie has a deep appreciation for architecture and design. Therefore, she’s influenced by a huge range of artists and designers, as well as her own environment.
Furthermore, Marie is passionate about using the best quality materials for her luxury British-made products. Where possible, she sources materials and works with highly skilled craftspeople in the UK. For example, she has her digitally printed fabric made in Britain, using the latest technology. For her sheepskins, she works with the last tannery in the UK that still employs traditional processing techniques. Small scale producers in the UK carry out her embroidery. Finally, specialists in Brighton print her artwork.
In addition, Marie makes sure her packaging is responsibly sourced. For example, 100% biodegradable and compostable cornstarch cello sleeves are used for all artwork where possible.
