Lois scatter cushion in orange plaid from on a vintage leather club chair

We bought two gorgeous vintage leather club chairs recently. They were looking a bit tired, but have cleaned up beautifully. We polished the leather, recovered the old seat pads in Hessian sacking – and have now found the perfect cushion just to complete the look.

We received this Lois cushion in orange plaid from this week. The overall red/orange appearance works perfectly with the rich chestnut brown leather, whilst the subtle touches of green & blue in the tartan pick up on the lettering in the Hessian sacking.

The fabric is very good quality and we’re also happy with the finishing in terms of stitching, zips etc. The cushion combines tradition with modernity which is just what we were after. We’ve put one of the chairs next to the window (and bookshelf) in our main bedroom. The perfect spot for a quiet – and now very comfortable read.

Orange has the wonderful ability to look warm & cosy in the winter or lively & fresh in the summer.

Orange objects really catch the eye. It enables them to shout loudly in a collection of other brightly coloured pieces.

Alternatively, it’s perfect as a highlight colour within a muted décor or against natural materials.

We’ve given a few different chairs the orange treatment!

We did a G is for… Garden blog post a couple of months ago having just planted out some annuals. Our French marigolds are doing well with all the sunshine & showers we’ve been having.
