Ever since the days of Margaret Howell’s T shirts and Frankie Goes to Hollywood, slogans have been, quite literally, the last word in style. Bold and brash, they’re a brilliant way to get your message across. And now homeware is getting in on the act too, with a new crop of moniker-emblazoned cushions. Far more direct than saying it with flowers which, less face it, are usually just a floral interpretation of the word ‘sorry’, these cushions are unapologetically loud, in your face, and just a little bit witty. Dot them in amongst more traditional designs and, if nothing else, at least they should help fill any awkward lapses in conversation when you’ve got guests.
