Editor’s Pick: Mud Cloth Cushion

Does this magic cushion fit perfectly with pretty much any design style?

When you’re inundated all day, every day with news about design trends and pictures of beautiful rooms, as I am in my job here as an editor at Western Living (a tough life), it can be hard commit to a cohesive look for your own space. How do you choose a direction when you’re swooning over sleek modern interiors and bohemian cool in equal measure?

But then sometimes you luck out and find a piece that encompasses all of your favourite trends in one stylish package: a piece that ties your love for clean modernist palettes with a passion for organic texture and a nod to ’80s geometrics.

Hello, black-and-white geometric-print mud cloth cushion. You’ve got a texture almost like burlap, a pattern that’s vaguely Scandinavian, a textile tradition first practiced in Africa—and you’ll look right at home in my living room, which prescribes to no specific design language either.
