The 1930’s and 1940’s tend, I feel, to be a bit of a forgotten in terms of design, and that’s one of the reasons I’m enjoying these Sewn Sequels cushions by Mini Moderns. They’re very limited edition, as they’re made up using vintage fabrics from that era.




The design company behind Mini Moderns, Absolute Zero Degrees, seems to enjoy looking into some of the dustier cornersĀ  of recent design history. Earlier this year they were commissioned to design a wallpaper to commemorate the Omega Workshops of 1913-19. Now their lovely Omega Wallpaper is one of the finalists in the ELLE DECORATION British Design Awards.
