Bold, fresh and bright these cushions, designed by Alpa Mistry, a woven textile designer, would be the perfect addition to your deckchair this summer – of course they would bring a burst of colour to your living room too. Stripes seem so simple, so straightforward but creating a dynamic pattern involves careful consideration of proportion and balance. Alpa succeeds where many fail and her work is further defined by imaginative use of colour and contrasting texture – diaphanous silks with wool, linens, mohair and cashmere. The colours are hand-dyed and woven on a 24 shaft George Wood dobby loom. We have six beautiful cushions worth, £65 each to give to subscribers.* www.alpamistry.com

Underpinned by her love of colour, the Henry Road collection is inspired by designer Paula Smail’s childhood in Africa and the sunshine and flora of Los Angeles, the city she now calls home. As a child growing up on Henry Road in South Africa, Paula vividly remembers sitting in the apricot tree eating unripe fruit, the smell of chlorine in her hair and sleeping in a red room. Since then Paula has lived in Paris, London and New York, and travelled extensively. The Henry Road company describes itself as an approach to home and living that celebrates the journey each of us has taken – the places we've been, the things we've done and the people we've loved. We have six hand-drawn and printed cotton table runners, worth $50 to give away.* www.henryroad.com
