SHOPPING & INTERIORS
We get a huge kick from discovering new textile designers and we immediately fell in love with Luke Edward Hall’s tigers, which remind us in a very good way of the iconic zebra wallpaper at Gino’s restaurant in New York (which closed, alas, in 2010). The fabric, which you can buy either by the metre or as ready made cushions, comes in various different colour-ways, all of which are lovely (the red is a classic, but we are also mightily tempted by the forest green/pink version). Hall also sells very pretty embroidered cushions, designed by himself and handmade in the UK. They come in gorgeously coloured linens with contrasting silk trims and the embroidered motifs, which include a palm tree, a piece of coral (as below), an octopus, an ionic column and a Greek vase – are inspired by both nature and the classical world. We love.
