Indigo Hydrangea Cushion

Indigo Hydrangea Cushion is a contemporary piece by multidisciplinary London-based artist Lora Avedian, which is inspired by her love of gardens. Influenced by National Trust Houses, English gardens and antique textiles collected from markets and fairs, this bolster with contrasting piping is typical of Lora's work, which often translates elements of narrative into stitch.
