Have you ever wondered what inspired a certain designer to create such beautiful items? Well, designers find inspiration anywhere and everywhere, which is evident in these gorgeous luxury silk cushions by Alexandra D Foster. With a 100% silk front and back, they are printed and hand sewn in one of Italy’s most sought after mills in Lake Como, then finished off with specially sourced border trims. Each of the designs are directly inspired by Alexandra’s travels and it is very clear to see from the pictures below, where exactly she got her inspiration from.
