Leaf Love March 23, 2016 20:14

The days are getting longer. Evenings are lighter and the temperatures are very slowly starting to creep up. That last sentence, written just 48 hours before the long Easter bank holiday weekend is bound to jinx things. But never mind. Let's think positive. Buds and blooms are on the turn. Gardens are waking up after a brief winter hibernation.  

Perhaps these v. welcome signs of life are the reason for people choosing deckchairs and garden goodies in the fabric design 'de jour': Leaf. As it is proving popular, we wanted to tell you a bit more about its provenance. Our leaf fabric design is inspired by an american forties dress fabric. When I think of this, I imagine the type of woman who would have worn this kind of print. And how. Would it have been a stylish new yorker or southern belle? Full skirted, nipped in waspy waist or a kind of wrap around affair? I'm not sure but for me, the marigold orange along with our chosen shades of blue against the warm, light gold background have the right blend of calm and colour.  We hope you agree. You can see more of our Leaf pattern in our range of deckchairs, cushions and windbreaks in the 'sit' section of our site - happy browsing!
