Lush Designs

You may remember that before Christmas I spent a day at the Workshop Sale (my retail therapy in reverse so to speak!)

One of the regulars at the Workshop Sale is Lush Designs, and I think that their quirky designs are so lovely that they are worth sharing again.


Lush Designs is the 'lovechild' of Marie Rodgers and Maria Livings (that's a bit confusing) who studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone Art College.  They started off in the 1980s doing wonderful and wacky jewelry (if you search on their site you can find a very 80s image of Pamela Stephenson sporting their earrings).

Their love of colour and characteristic quirky prints has been applied to a range of homewares (tea towels, lampshades, sheets etc.) many of which are made in house at their studio at Cockpit Arts in Deptford where they have twice yearly open studio events.




But you don't have to wait that long.

They sell on line, have a lovely shop in Greenwich South London and they wholesale to other retailers so there are a number of their stockists dotted around the country.
