A Riotous Heritage – Squirrels, Peacocks and Pomegranates

Inspired by classical landscapes and decaying mansions the rich imagery in this collection embraces elegantly escaping plants whilst urban fauna run wild. Squirrels riot in abundant foliage; their tails luxuriant with fur textures and thick embroidery. Ripe red pomegranates are nibbled by passing creatures whilst decadently embroidered peacocks peer and preen amongst the undergrowth. A wild luxury has grown over the Chinoiserie opulence. The exquisite embroideries bring alive shifting cultural allegiances creating contemporary embellished landscapes, inspired by the collision of the natural and the manmade as the wildlife creates its own lost forest across this vibrant collection.

The Peacock and Squirrel Ottoman

On the Ottoman, traditionally upholstered in custom printed velvet, the squirrels take over from the Peacocks and Pomegranates, evoking a stately garden run riot. A custom made bolster adds a decorative touch to one end. The fabrics are a luxurious ombré of printed velvet running from dark rich blue to vibrant green.

This statement piece is a limited edition, available exclusively from London Connoisseur.

The ottoman is fully traditionally upholstered, and can be produced as a seat only, as shown, or as a full ottoman incorporating storage inside. As with all my statement pieces, these are made to bespoke order; please contact the studio to discuss your order.

Pomegranate and Squirrel cushions

These sumptuous cushions are tactile works of art. They make a perfect gift or a unique addition – and definitely a talking point – for your own home. Printed onto a medium pile velvet and embroidered with squirrel and pomegranate motifs on the one side they come with your choice of feather or polyester fill and measure 50x50cm

Limited edition bolster cushions also available.

The Red Squirrel Footstools

Jacky is excited to be working in collaboration with AUTHOR Interiors to create a series of embroidered footstools featuring the endangered red squirrel.

This sumptuous footstool features the Red Squirrel peeking out from the hazel leaves, as it begins to reclaim the overgrown estate garden from the preening Peacocks and grey squirrels. The rich embroidered foliage over a printed ombré velvet gives the sense of a lost forest, home to both Red Squirrels and escaped Peacocks.
