We collaborated with Sarah Thornton, a painter and illustrator inspired by the natural world, to create Rita Does Jazz. This graffiti patterned velvet in a rush of bubble gum sugary brights and charcoals is based on one of Sarah’s original artworks and made into a surface pattern by Charlotte and Sarah.
“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.
Charlotte and I both decided that my “Rita does Jazz” piece bounced off the paper, with its colour and pulsing vibes. I was thrilled to see this design all huge, bright and beautiful, to see something grow from an idea into a tangible, soft, luxurious velvet and imagining it in homes; that feels very special.”
