Florals and bird prints are on-trend for Spring 2016 and Christiane Lemieux has launched a stunning new ‘Living by Christiane Lemieux’ range for House of Fraser. Lemieux’s elegant designs feature an Hiroto-inspired print of a heron soaring over orchids and clouds. As the signature piece of Lemieux’s new collection, the heron (which is a Chinese symbol of strength, purity and patience) adorns a range of bedding, dinnerware and soft home furnishings.
Lemieux’s inspiration for the design came whilst scouring Parisian flea markets and finding a vintage swatch of two herons in flight. Where the original swatch uses Prussian blue and dusky pinks to accent the heron’s outstretched wings, Lemieux uses fine hand-drawn monochrome details. The back of the cushion is also complemented with the scalloped edging of the cushion’s clouds, creating a vintage pattern that features elsewhere in the range. This simple yet intricate design – that makes the everyday seem remarkable – is sure to be a talking point in whichever room it’s placed in.
The Hiroto heron print cushion has been reduced to £24 and is on sale now at the House of Fraser. To view the cushion and the complete ‘Living by Christiane Lemieux’ range click: http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Living+by+Christiane+Lemieux+Hiroto+Crane+Cushion/226538293,default,pd.html
