Stripes are always a reliable support act, and this midweight linen is ideal for cushions and light furnishings to compliment chairs and lounges. The stripe is the straight man - a classic coordinate that compliments any design. Julie has designed her latest stripes to be a bit wonky. The slightly misregistered two-colour print on the base cloth creates a variable pinstripe, which makes this stripes design jaunty and contemporary. Maybe a bit more like French and Saunders than your old-fashioned Martin and Lewis.
