Dappled Beetle Cushions by AUTHOR: the home of British-made luxury furniture and interior accessories

Regular price £105 Sale

Handmade for the AUTHOR's Own range in Dundee, Scotland.

These sophisticated cushions are made using the stunning Dappled Beetle Linen. Created in Northern Ireland, the linen is made through a tradtional manufacturing method called 'beetling'. This requires the linen to be turned slowly and pounded by wooden beetling hammers for 140 hours to create its flat, high lustre sheen. Available in two colour ways, Drab and Dark Slate. The Drab cushion is lined with sumptuous chocolate brown leather piping and the Dark Slate is lined with gorgeous, richly-hued dark blue leather piping.

Why we love this product

A sophisticated contemporary design, created using traditional manufacturing techniques.

Made in Tayside, Scotland, these cushions are available in two colour ways, Dark Slate and Drab. Dark Slate has cooler, blue tones and is paired with the most beautiful dark toned blue leather piping whilst Drab is a warming sandy colour and paired with a stunning chocolate brown leather piping. It is rare to see a linen have such a lustre to it, this is due to the unique manufacturing process in making the linen which creates the beautiful water mark effect. Both colour ways are sophisticated and fitting for either contemporary or traditionally styled bedrooms, lounges or sitting rooms.
