It’s a crewel, crewel summer.
Sorry, Bananarama. (Or Ace of Base, if you missed the ’80s.)
To-the-trade stalwart Lee Jofa captures the essence of summer with Verdmont – a bright, bold collection of luxe linen, chintz and prints, including these to-die-for crewelwork beauties… The exotic embroidery has been popping up everywhere we look this season, and on these cushions, the contrast welt proves the perfect finishing touch!
Tyler Crewel in Sorbet, Lemon and Aqua
Paying tribute to the Verdmont mansion – an early 18th century Bermuda estate – the collection reimagines some of Lee Jofa’s archival prints in very contemporary colourways. This little vignette serves as a great lesson in pairing printed florals, stripes, solids and embroidery. Hello, instant room!

Check out the exquisite, large-repeat print on these loose-fitting slipcovers: another easy, breezy summer trend to swoon over.

Even as we move towards autumn in terms of new launches, chintz seems to be gaining momentum. These are particularly tasty examples… And that saturated, salmony wall colour makes these fancy florals anything but frumpy.
