Design Porn: Dupenny Burlesque Cushions

So, remember last September, when we showed you Emily Dupen-Hopkins' kitsch and quirky screen-printed wallpaper designs? Well, if you were just as besotted as I was by Dupenny Wallpapers but weren't quite sure that adorning your walls with illustrations of call girls, burlesque beauties, insects and circus animals would go down too well with your landlord, housemates, family or significant other, then don't despair.

Emily has now branched out to create a range of beautiful burlesque-themed cushions certain to bring glamour to any lounge or boudoir. Each one features a dramatic black-and-white design hand-printed onto dupion silk, backed with decadent dark red fabric and edged with black silk piping. Gigi, above, is my personal favourite, but I'm also rather taken with this cheeky mademoiselle, known as Peaches:


They're £65 each, a snip for what's essentially a unique piece a textile art. Just don't forget to tidy them away when your gran comes round for tea.

  2. Thanks Will! I'll admit they're an acquired taste but I love how they manage to be both saucy and sophisticated - a feat not often achieved by other retailers!

  5. Really? How come? Too tacky? I knew they wouldn't be to everyone's taste!
