Vintage Fabric Cushions

I’ve been looking on the internet at Australian designers and artisans selling vintage fabric cushions and I’m sharing my list of favourites.

First is the fantastic Funky Fabrix website.  In addition to a great range of ready made cushions they also have a custom made cushion service. You can choose from a huge range of fabulous vintage fabrics from their sister site 100% Vintage. My favourite vintage fabric cushion is this one.

I’m pleased to say my website page, Fabulous Vintage vintage cushions, came nearly top in Google’s ranking. My hard work on S.E.O. has at last paid off. My favourite Fabulous Vintage cushions are of course Floppy Poppy and Rhea, both are vintage Sanderson fabrics.

Sally Campbell’s gorgeous website is also a favourite. Sally has some beautiful vintage fabric cushions made from vintage handmade textiles as well as amazing vintage throws. Sally sources her handmade textiles in India and they are made by artisans. All quilts, throws and cushions are either ‘hand-dyed’, ‘hand-stitched’, ‘hand-woven’ or ‘hand block-printed’. As a result they fade naturally and imperfections are part of their charm. Here is a selection from Sally’s website.

A quick look on Etsy and I find Moth Cushions, a range of one of a kind and limited edition, beautifully crafted cushions. Each cushion is created from vintage and retro fabrics, bedspreads, curtains, tea towels and tablecloths sourced from linen presses around the world.

Until next time

Vintage Fabric & Accessories Sale

At last I’ve created a Fabulous Vintage Facebook Sale Shop. I’ll be uploading lots of gorgeous things over the next few weeks as I need to sell some products to make way for more beautiful vintage fabric! Here is a sneak peek of what’s on offer. Bridget

 

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – Kirribilli, Sydney

A beautifully sunny and airy house in a cosy Kirribilli street is brightened with Fabulous Vintage cushions.

The top image vintage fabric poppy cushions are made with Sanderson 1970’s ‘Rhea’ fabric and they look amazing. The cushions below are made with Giltex marigold vintage fabric and are in reality for the master bedroom. They were custom-made to fit an existing pair of cushion inserts. There wasn’t quite enough light for a photo of the bedroom but they look fabulous on the sofa too.

A big thank you to ‘Gaynor The Trainer’ who lives in this super house with her husband Paul and their 2 lovely children, for decorating your sunny abode with Fabulous Vintage cushions!

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – North Sydney

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – North Sydney, Australia. March 2012

Two beautiful cushions and a cylinder lampshade make a great impact in our neighbour’s gorgeous Victorian terrace in North Sydney.

This fabric is a stunning floral screen print sourced from the UK called ‘Desdemona’ and designed by Grace Sullivan in the 1970s.

It looks brilliant against the matt black leather sofa.

    

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – North Sydney

A few weeks ago at the North Sydney markets I met a really lovely lady, Pauletta,  who lives on my street.  Pauletta bought some cushions for her son as a Christmas present and popped in to have a look at my fabrics. She mentioned a love of lime green and yellow and it just so happened I had a large mint condition piece of a gorgeous abstract floral fabric in those exact colours.

This fabric is from the 1970s although there is nothing printed in the selvage so I’m unsure who the designer is. It has a very Scandinavian retro look about it so it could be from Finland or Sweden.

Gorgeous!

The cushions and lampshade look fabulous against the bright green feature wall in Pauletta’s apartment.
