Oooh! I would like it! My parents lived in Germany in the 1970's (before I was born) and when I was little we had all these beautiful little things with bright, bold graphic flowery patterns, that they'd brought back from their time in Europe. I loved all those things! Picture books in German, stickers and melamine cups and cute kids' stuff that my older sisters had played with in Germany. This pillow (and actually most of your work!) reminds me of all those memories, those special and bright and simply designed patterns and flowers. I think it would look super cute in my house (and maybe someday I'll have a kid that will love it too!)

I would like it because it would go beautifully with the red chair I sit in to breastfeed too many times a night and I think we have too many boy things in our house anyway. A lovely flowery cushion might start to redress the balance :)

I would like it, because I'm a child of the 70's and just love these colours.

I would love this! my couch is a rather awful outdated blue and I think this pillow would help bring it into the now so to speak.

I think that this cushion would really put a smile on my mum's face as it would remind her of all the lovely cushions and other things that her mother and aunts used to make in france in the 60s and 70s and earlier. One of her Aunts was an especially creative and whimsical free spirit, and so it would particularly remind her of the bold printed fabrics she would buy and make into cushions or dresses and other things or of things she would embroider or crochet...

It's lovely and bright and would inject some life into my currently quite bland (mainly cream) kitchen. *fingers crossed*

I think it would go down a treat with Zsa Zsa the cat from Hector's house. It would go very well in her little house. She's fond of flowers and for some reason it reminds me of her. (If you can't get in touch with her, I'll have it!)

Alexis said...

I would love it! It reminds me of curtains that my grandmother used to have in Berlin in the 1970's. It makes my heart swell to see it!

Oooooohhh - we would love it here in Newton Abbot! I am just decorating my daughter's room (her first room of her own) before she heads off to Secondary School in September. Last Christmas I bought her one of your little sausage dogs, which she adores, and this cushion would go perfectly, and be the perfect place to lay her head! I am running around like a frantic woman, trying to get her room finished as a surprise for when she gets home from guide camp next Thursday :^
And more than anything else ... we love what you make!!
My fingers and toes are tightly crossed!x

My sis is a 70's baby! She's just moved into her 1st house! :) A new/old thing would be nice as all her stuff is 2nd hand-ty x

My daughter would love it! She has inherited my healthy obsession of all things vintage/retro & handmade. She would love it also for it's bold, colourful design & colours which match her creative personality to a T <3

Katie said...

I would really really love it, the colours are just perfect for my dusky blue sofa and I adore the beautiful retro flowers.

Hi Jane, I would love to win this cushion for my cat Shima! She is grey/apricot and white and has a special spot on the sofa where she curls up every night. The cushion would fit rather nicely next to her so she could look at it when she wakes up. I also have one of your stuffed cats which Shima looks up at on my shelf, I think she is hoping they can be friends! Your work is super lovely x

lizzie said...

I would love it because I grew up in the 70s so it gives me a nostalgic zing. Plus I like to rest my eyes after tea and this would accommodate my heavy head very nicely. Thanks!!

Ah! And I forgot to mention that I'm Dutch. Also a good reason for a Dutch Dekoplus 70s fabric cushion...

Stephanie said...

I would like it because my husband would like it! He's not much for color, but the simple pattern and bold colors is something he would spring for. Plus, it would look great on our greyish blue couch!

Kylie said...

I would love it very much, because it sings to me. Truly.

Claire Trevor said...

My mum would love it for its bright bold print, and she was just saying the other day that she needs some new cushions:)

Pamela Nees said...

Love this cushion! The flowers are so graphic and just shout that they should smell good, too! It would find a lovely home in my father's room (he is 90)! All of his visitors would "OOH and AHH!"

I have become obsessed with prints and slumbering on this would encourage beautifully patterned dreams. Why do prints like this make my heart sing? Love it!! Big up to you Jane Foster!

WandaFish said...

I don't have fresh flowers in the house very often and am sure that looking at this lovely, happy print would lift my spirit!
Thanks for the giveaway :)
