Timorous Beasties for John Lewis Thistle Cushion, Black

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.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent quality I have bought 6 of these cushions in black & i am very pleased with them they look stunning & are very good quality 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adore I love this cushion so much. Yes, it's expensive and if I didn't have the vouchers I wouldn't normally consider buying it but the style is stunning and goes well in my living room. 25 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Always make my own cushions but could not resist these. They are beautifully made, the fabric is lovely, and they are nice and plump. I did think twice about this purchase as the cushion is expensive but I bought them one at a time and they are worth every penny. They really complement our aubergine marl Gplan sofa - so stylish I am delighted with the look! 19 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Timourous Beauty! Although expensive, this cushion is so beautiful and is of such a fine quality, really pleased with my purchase 14 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Original and Beautiful I love Timorous Beasties designs and was delighted with this cushion. Not only is it a lovely eye catching design, the quality speaks for itself. It is quite expensive but as with most quality items it is worth the initial expenditure. 22 July 2014
