Chrysanths Japonais in Midnight Blue by Lux and Bloom
We like to think of Lux and Bloom cushions not only as beautiful interior pieces for the home but also as little framed pictures.
LUX & BLOOM is an independent design label based in Bath and founded by Louise Rushford. She studied Fine Art then contemporary dance in London and after a short period as a professional dancer, returned to image making. Her paintings have been exhibited throughout Britain and her work is in private collections internationally.
All Lux & Bloom designs start life as hand drawn illustrations painted by Louise which are then played with as a digital canvas to produce the final elegant patterns. All the designs are created at the Bath studios and the fabric is printed at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art.
“I am originally from Glasgow and I like maintaining those strong ties. Not only does the art school there produce the finest digitally printed fabrics in Britain, but also because I feel connected to the city’s design heritage. Rennie Mackintosh remains a strong inspiration in my work.
I have always been fascinated by art and design stories with drama, strong themes, vivid colour contrasts and with a dash of the Gothic. All of these ingredients go into the designs I love to create, individual designs which offer something really different. Customers tell me that our accessories bring a bit of glamour and drama into their homes and that’s exciting.’’
All Lux & Bloom cushions are handmade in Britain using the finest quality furnishing fabrics – gorgeously super soft 100% cotton velvets, vibrant pure silk crepe satins or cool cottons. They are available in 5 different sizes and choice of design and are backed and piped with cotton furnishing velvet or pure Irish linen. Every cushion is zipped with a removable fine feather inner pad with a double layer canvas cover. Dry clean only. Please note that there may be slight colour variations depending on choice of material.
