This gloriously patterned cushion is named after the city of Shimla, now the capital of the Punjab. Shimla is set high in the Himalayas where, famed for its cool summers, it is a place of retreat from the heat.
This beautiful cushion also invites retreat. The hand cut woodblock print has finely delineated floral motifs (reflecting their Mogul origin) in light olive against a cream background, set off by silky, dark khaki tassels. Each tessellated flowerhead has become a stylised motif that has elegantly morphed into a peacock’s tail. The effect is dynamic, perfect to enhance a plain sofa, rattan chair, or scattered over a bed.
Supplied with a feather insert.
