This is a bench/lumbar cushion cover made from a vintage upcycled tea towel featuring the iconic Penguin Books book cover of A Room Of One's Own by Virginia Woolf. Virginia had her own room built at Monk's House, Rodmell, East Sussex, the home she shared with her husband, Leonard, as a place for her to write undisturbed but another advantage to this "extension" was that it meant she could receive her lover more discretely. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.", she famously said. Monk's House is now owned by the National Trust and resided in by designer Catherine Zoob who maintains the gardens and house for visitors to enjoy. You can still see the path Virginia must have walked as she made her way to the river with stones in her pockets, never to return. Her ashes are buried under an Elm in the garden of her home.

A bold, graphic print in purple and cream with black writing this cover features the cute penguin motif and is a classy addition to any room. The vintage tea towel is in excellent condition as it has never been used.

The reverse is made from a luxe grey wool fabric and the cover is sewn in an envelope style and fastens with a lovely brown wooden button featuring a low relief carved stags head with antlers in keeping with Hunted and Stuffed's style.

Size: Approx 45cm x 70cm

Colours: Cream, Black, Purple. Grey reverse.

Filling: This is for the stuffed cushion but if you would like to buy the cover only, please contact me for revised costs and shipping. Filled with a luxury Duck Feather (85%) and Down (15%) filling and a protective layer to prevent feather loss. Washable, Non-Allergenic, 233TC Soft Feather Proof Cotton Cambric, Anti-Dust Mite and conforms to Fire & Furnishing Regulations.

Care: The fabrics have been carefully cleaned by Hunted and Stuffed before being fashioned into the cover. Dry cleaning is recommended or a low temperature hand wash.

UK customers - item will be sent recorded unless you request otherwise.
Overseas customers - item will be sent unrecorded unless requested. Tracking will cost more.
Carriers base charges on volumetric weight not actual weight which is a real disadvantage when posting cushions! If you just want the cover then you will GREATLY reduce shipping costs and item cost too. Contact me!
