  • Emma Bridgewater has teamed up with Sanderson to design a gorgeous new homewares collection with her famous prints and leads the way for a beautifully British country trend this summer

    For interior design addicts, patterns such as Toast & Marmalade and Polka Dot need no introduction, as Emma Bridgewater’s much-loved pottery has found a place in our kitchens over the past 30 years.

    And now Emma is branching out – with gorgeous new homeware. She has teamed up with Sanderson to create a new collection of fabrics and accessories that capture the handcrafted essence of the pottery.

    The new range of cushions has caught our eye. At last, the opportunity
    to bring those heart-warming, relaxed designs from the kitchen into
    our living rooms!


    The cushions have a different pattern on each side, with favourites such as the multi-coloured Egg & Feather and Polka
    and vibrant pink Hellebore and Coral. Made with pure cotton fabric, the cushions
    measure 45cm square and cost £39.95 each.

    Emma Bridgewater’s new soft furnishings are a welcome addition to the
    range from the Stoke-on-Trent pottery company that began in 1985.

    and her husband, Matthew Rice, both create designs inspired by family
    life with their four children: the well-known Marmalade pattern came
    from a family tradition of stocking the cupboards with home-made
    marmalade every February.

    Emma is not the only designer to embrace beautiful motif soft furnishings, as British country inspired fabrics are high on the trend hot list.

    Vanessa Arbuthnott‘s most popular collection is aptly named ‘Bohemian’, which reflects her love of the simpler things in life and her rural roots based in the heart of Gloucestershire. Think delicate toile designs of gypsy caravans, fresh washing lines drying in the breeze and pretty floral trails.

    Laura Ashley‘s new painterly floral collection has been influenced by the arts and crafts of our British Isles. The new feminine range consists of a warming palette in berry and orchid tones with a large romantic chrysanthemum motif, perfect for an inviting, country scheme.

    Arrange any of these charming cushions on your sofa and we’re sure that with this kind of heritage, they’ll instantly look at home.
