Timorous Beasties for John Lewis Thistle Cushion

Product information

This decorative cushion celebrates the iconic thistle, long revered as a Celtic symbol of nobility. Its oversized line-drawn image is bold and striking, making it an eye-catching addition to your favourite armchair.
Design duo Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons met at Glasgow School of Art and later formed Timorous Beasties. With an approach that is experimental and even surreal, their designs combine naturalistic images with a contemporary graphic style.
