  • About This Design

    Inspired by an exquisite hand crafted feather butterfly from Sarah Burton's inaugural Folklore collection, the Monarch cushion is hand woven in wool and silk aubusson, using the warm, autumnal palette of the original catwalk creation.

    This cushion comes supplied with a generous goose down filler.

  • Designer Story

    Initially trained on Savile Row, Alexander McQueen was quickly distinguished as a ground-breaking, unconventional and lavish fashion designer.

    Renowned for his theatrical fashion shows, macabre motifs, ‘bumster’ trousers and sculpted silhouettes, he added fantasy and rebellion to all his creations. McQueen (or ‘Lee’ to those close to him) graduated from Central St Martins in 1995. The following year he was appointed head designer at Givenchy, before establishing his eponymous label in 2001. With numerous celebrity patrons and adoring fans, his name and ‘genius’ is recognized worldwide.

    Three years in the making, Alexander McQueen’s rug collection took craftsmanship to couture levels, encapsulating The Rug Company and McQueen’s combined commitment to arresting design, superior quality and skilled craftsmanship. The collection won the award for ‘Fashion’s Contribution to Design’ at the 2010 Elle Decoration British Design Awards.

    McQueen tragically died on 11 February 2010. The custodian for the Alexander McQueen brand is now his right-hand woman, Sarah Burton, who has earned her own international success for her beautiful creations, honouring Lee’s vision whilst still accomplishing her own aesthetic.
