Swallows Wheel

This Art Deco motif is inspired by the wonderful aerial acrobats we call swallows on Howth Head ducking and diving in the summer air. These impossibly elegant summer visitors provide a warm and colourful counterpoint to our interiors whatever season you're in. Statement accent pieces, they are available in either shimmer velvet (a sumptuous tactile fabric that is soft to the touch), or on a subtle linen/cotton mix.

Eye catching and luxurious my designbybell cushions sit on my favourite chair and invite me to a little time for myself. They curl into my back, nuzzle under my arm as I sink into softness. There’s time now, for tea, a book even a daydream,

I am the proud owner of 3 of Karen's cushions. My particular favourite is Kaleidescope Eye, in purple velvet bursting with colour. A friend liked it so much she commissioned Karen to design extra large curtains using the same motif. There is something luxurious about her cushions maybe because of the generous filling as well as the textures/colours. Then to top it all they are handmade in Ireland.

The lush and sometimes delicate colours cascading out of the
bags were my cushions, with textures of velvet, satin and linen. The peacocks in their finery coming to life, the kaleidoscope reminiscent of Jungs mandalas, beautiful profusions of colour that caught my eye. The swallows too a delight, so like they are in flight. The carrageen in red one of my favourites. Filled with feather and down, they feel luxurious and substantial. The logo tag so personal to Karen adding another layer to her unique designs.  Lovely indeed ❤
