This cushion is part of our gorgeous new collection from London based duo Cary Briggs and Andrew Mason of Stoff Studios. Hand printed using reactive dyes onto a heavy textured, hand-dyed linen, the designs are developed from gestural mark making and mono printing techniques. They use traditional methods to create refined, intimate collections of textiles that bring soft blocks of colour and texture to a room – they are beautiful little abstract artworks in themselves! Inspired by the ancient stones at Avebury and the paintings of Paul Nash, this print has a gestural, painterly quality reminiscent of the human body. “We wanted to create a print that was a development from our first collection (which was directly inspired by life drawing and the female form). After working through our collection of rocks and fossils, we took a trip out to Avebury to see the ancient standing stones which had been drawn and photographed by one of our favourite artists Paul Nash. We spent 2 days at the site, drawing, photographing and taking rubbings of the stones. This print is the result of repeatedly drawing the shapes and outlines of these weather beaten rocks which we distilled down to an abstract grid of shapes.” Stoff Studios colour: background pale pinky beige linen with dark green/grey motifs Special order.

Icon Cushion (Clerkenwell)
My name is Lorraine Aaron. I’m a professional artist with a background in making art for public places. I gained my degree in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Scotland and also studied at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago followed by a period spent studying in Florence. Over the past 20 years I have worked as a sculptor, painter, public artist and gallery artist as well as teaching contemporary arts practice and running a successful art consultancy business.
Making work for public places has given me an obsessive interest in art, interiors and architecture and how the combination of these can alter the places where we live and work and contribute to our health and wellbeing. I am passionate about putting together intriguing objects and unexpected materials to create inspiring, adventurous interiors.
I set up Curious Egg in 2015 with the help of my husband Roddy. We love visiting new places and through our regular travels off the beaten track, we often explore hidden studios and local artisan makers and entrepreneurs.
I’m constantly on the hunt for fine crafted objects, interesting limited edition artworks and tactile, characterful homewares. I enjoy uncovering and sharing the fascinating stories they tell.
Curious Egg is my little corner of the internet to share ideas and conversations about interiors and art as well as some of my most interesting product finds. My aim is to bring art and interiors together in a relaxed and imaginative way by offering a small, carefully curated and ever changing range of beautiful and interesting products that will help you to craft your home and celebrate your individuality. If you are looking for something particularly special or that is completely unique to you, I also offer a bespoke sourcing service. I can often source unusual items or commission a piece on your behalf through my extensive network of fellow artists, designers and craftspeople across Scotland, the UK and far reaches of Europe. If for some reason I can’t source or commission it, I may be able to make it for you.
