The fabric is lovely and it's made beautifully, however it's not a five-starer as it doesn't sit snug against the bottom of the door. It's too light and to stuffed; needs more malleability.

About

Who's Behind Retro68?

Welcome to Retro68 and thank you for dropping by our etsy store, We are a small two man business creating our work from our Bristol workshop using original vintage fabrics from the 1960/70s and ocassionally the 50s.

It was alright in the 1970s -
Cushions supplied by Retro68 were recently used on Channel 4s it was alright in the 1970s, which broadcast on the 5th September 2015

15 MINUTES OF FAME
I was delighted to be asked to supply a range of cushions for the TV show "Peter Andre's 60 minute makeover" which is broadcast by ITV. I supplied cushions for two episodes

DESIGN
My cushions were also used by the National Trust when they opened a "pop up" flat in October 2014 in Balfron Tower, London. Hemingway designs used original furnishings from the 1960s to furnish the flat.
Balfron Tower was designed by modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger, and finished in 1967, Flat 130 is the flat that Goldfinger himself lived in for 2 months in 1968, to prove the desirability of high-rise living.
For anyone interested in 60s design please follow the link - http://hemingwaydesign.co.uk/projects/design/flat-130-balfron-tower
