Be good

Greenland Blue Cushion normally £65, now £35 for limited time only

Greenland (blue) cushion, 100% duck feather filling, zipper close, was £65, now £35

I’m loving this Scandi-inspired cushion. It’s part of a range of gloriously colourful, patterned homewares – giant floor cushions, upholstery fabrics, wallpapers, art prints and mugs – from B Goods, a husband and wife team Ben and Fi O’Brien, who design and make from their studio in Frome. They’ve got a sale on now, too.

B Goods at Greenland Lifestyle Shot

Fi, who’s originally from Melbourne, worked in advertising and ran an independent cafe and design store before founding B Goods (as in ‘be good’), and can still sometimes be found at the sewing machine. Ben works as an illustrator as well being the duo’s pattern designer and story writer.Ben and Fi of B Goods

The designs have come out of a love of nature and stories, with each pattern being inspired by a short ‘story’ written by Ben. Here’s an extract from the Nest Building story:  ‘Along the Caribbean coast of Central America, the Montezuma Oropendola builds a pendulum shaped nest that can hang 180 cm from the forest canopy branches. In humid tropical forests of the Northern Andes, female hummingbirds build tiny 2cm cup-shaped nests using spider silk, moss and lichen….’ Here’s the pattern the story inspired, as a wallpaper:

Patterns come in different colourways, for example this upholstery fabric which is available by the metre.
