Rita does Jazz velvet

Select to order sample or quantity
Design Notes

We collaborated with Sarah Thornton, a painter and illustrator inspired by the natural world, to create Rita Does Jazz velvet, which is now also available as ready made cushions and lampshades.

Charlotte selected one of Sarah's paintings, a sketch on a piece of hotel note paper and worked with Sarah to create the oversized bold design which was printed onto a thick cotton velvet, retaining the vibrancy of the original painting. Read more about the work behind the scenes in our blog post.

“You’ll find me staring at a bullfinch or a hydrangea, the next minute I’ll be admiring the design on a manhole cover. Everything inspires me but I find myself constantly returning to repeated patterns, birds and floral motifs." - Sarah Thornton

Rita does Jazz velvet creates an energetic statement in a room, working well in Contemporary, Mid Century and Maximalist settings, and can be used for upholstery, curtains and blinds.
