We are still feeling it. Is it a fad? Is it a trend? Who knows. But we still love Orange. Or as we call it, "Ayers' Rock".
And so does our lovely customer Kathryn. She bought this lumbar cushion in Ornge Korla Print and sent us this gorgeous shot.
Why is it working?
Well, for starters, it's orange (sorry, Ayres Rock)! A lumbar cushion is a really easy and changeable way to give a nod to a current trend without breaking the bank. A great way to try it out a new colour or print before you dive in and get a bigger item like a curtain or blind or paint a wall. It's like cutting your hair from long to short, it's a huge leap, much easier done in little baby steps.
Why else? Well, it's kind of a neutral room. The wall is white, the chair is beige..it might,(Dare we say it? have been a bit dull) but, she's clever this girl. The orange lumbar (so small but so strong) has picked up the orange goldfish in the picture above, it's given the chair some solidity and weight, and chats to the red chinese stool on the right. The room is no longer greige (gasp...no!) it's cool, quirky, individual and Korla LOVES it.
Here's what the happy customer said: Just love my orange cushions!!! They are great and really brighten up my somewhat ordinary chairs!! Thanks Kathryn.
