Kiku Cushion in Shiori
A background of Pebble plays host to light bronze metallics and solid black foliage, with flowers depicted in soft tones of white and taupe.
The Kiku cushion is a needlepoint rendition of our wallcovering of the same name.
Inspired both by Japanese art and Europe’s infatuation with the form, our original wallcovering has a graphic, block-painted layout featuring elegantly rendered chrysanthemums, which we give a unique texture by sprinkling salt onto the paint while it is still wet.
We have replicated this effect in needlepoint by rendering the flowers and the background in a marl stitch, where two fine threads of different tones are used together to create a sense of depth. Black leaves nod to the block-painting style of our Kiku wallcovering, while the Hand painted veins in the original are rendered here in silver thread over-embroidery.
