WELCOME TO AW13 Inspired by the Art Deco and the dazzling 1920’s, this new collection from Place de Bleu has a sense of timeless elegance, glamour and the joy of everyday life. We have been inspired by the 1920’s passion for bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation; its almost extravagant playing with colours, textures and materials.

Sensual vibrant colours spans from pastel pink and aqua over dark saturated colours like amber and golden sand. The rich materials and textures look and feel like both silk and suede, but are much more lasting! We hope you enjoy our ever growing range as much as we enjoy making it for you!

STAR CUSHION OUR INSPIRATION The Star Cushion is Place de Bleu’s signature design per se. It represents a playful meeting between the classic Moroccan cushion and a more Scandinavian feel. With its round shape and clean graphic lines the Star Cushion makes a colorful addition to any environment.

For this AW13 collection we have produced it in six new variations making it easy to find a cushion that suits any temper or style of interior decoration. Be it, the soft and tender or the more daring. Use a single eye catcher on the sofa or bed or combine several cushions to create your very own expression.


GATSBY CUSHION OUR INSPIRATION The Gatsby Cushion is made of a pattern of diamond shaped textiles with intercrossing stitches adding a sense of three-dimensionality. The inspiration is derived from the iconic Scottish Argyll design originally used for kilts and plaids and made fashionable by the Duke of Windsor for his golf clothing in the 1920’s.

The Gatsby Cushion’s classic yet glamorous style has a simplicity that transcends the traditional line between masculine and feminine and a sculptural feeling that makes it a natural part of every interior and decoration.
