If you are looking at a mix of the vintage with the modern then that is even better. Adding carefully chosen vintage or antique elements to a modern decor can add character and warmth and cushions are a quick and easy way of achieving this.
For example we feature cushions by Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo. The Fortuny ‘Olympia’ Silk Cushion is a beautiful bespoke cushion in 1920’s Fortuny ‘Olympia’ pattern silk, backed with naturally-dyed 19th century linen. Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo (in Catalan Marià Fortuny i de Madrazo; 11 May 1871 – 3 May 1949) was a Spanish fashion designer who opened his couture house in 1906 and continued until 1946. He was the son of the painter Mariano Fortuny y Marsal.
