Rita does Jazz Velvet Cushion

Luxurious velvet cushion with piped edges to bring a splash of colour and personality into your home. 43cm x 43cm (17" x 17").

Design Notes

Our vibrant Rita does Jazz velvet by Sarah Thornton is now available as a luxury cushion and lampshade.

Sarah Thornton is a painter and illustrator inspired by the natural world, something evident in the rush of bubble gum sugary brights and charcoals of Rita Does Jazz. This graffiti patterned velvet is taken from one of Sarah’s original artworks and has been used to create a stunning velvet cushion.

A 'Rita does Jazz' cushion can add a splash of colour and personality to a grey sofa, or build on a more maximal look, adding a real pop against dark walls and furniture. This cushion has been featured in US luxury lifestyle magazine Dolce , the Evening Standard and Period Living Magazine.

Made in Lancashire, England, to a high standard with piping and woven label. The cushion is upholstered in 'Rita does Jazz' velvet on both sides, and due to the large scale of the pattern, each cushion is unique.

We supply our cushions with a plump ethically sourced feather pad. Please contact us at if you would like to request an alternative.

Love these cushions!

I bought two cushions for our new kitchen/ dining room to add a splash of colour which ties in with our grey/yellow theme. The cushions are excellent quality with luxurious brushed fabric and look fabulous in our new room. Brilliant service and delivery etc from Charlotte. Couldn’t be happier!

A splash of colour

I really love how my Rita does jazz cushion brings out the colours of the surroundings objects and at the same time ties the whole room together. It is like an abstract painting that lightens up my very strict and grey sofa, and I never tire looking at all the details in the pattern. And it is made out of VELVET!! Love it!!

Jazz up you room!

This cushion makes me smile every time I walk into my front room and see it. It brings a burst of colour and joy to the room. I love Sarah Jane Thornton’s unique design; graphic and yet also has an animal print feel about. And such vibrant colours. The fabric is soft, high quality velvet, as you’d expect from the Monkey Puzzle Tree. This cushion gets comments from all my family and friends; my cousin loves it so much I promised I’d get her one as a house warming present. Very happy with my purchase.

Enhances our guest bedroom.

We bought a Rita Does Jazz cushion and now have it on our guest bed. The concept of working with up and coming artists is particularly appealing. The cushion is of excellent quality and would seem to match equally for both traditional (as ours is) and modern decor.
