Where can you buy the tartan cushions?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: It's A Bloomsbury Life
Borgnes-Giramonti describes this wallpaper as having an "anarchic Sex Pistols vibe." It came from Scottish Design firm Timorous Beasties. The ceiling fixture is from Circa Lighting. "It reminds me of a Victorian deep sea diver's helmet," Bornes-Giramonti says.
Becky Harris added this to Today's Icons: The Hicks Pendant Light
The Hicks pendant is available in small, large, and extra large. Here, a single extra-large pendant hung low over a small dining table makes a big statement.
Cate West Zahl added this to Welcome Winter with A Touch of Plaid
This is a great example of mixing pattern with tartan plaid. The red and navy print on the window seat contrasts nicely with the beige and black thistle wallpaper and floral pillows. But it all seems to work well together in a genuinely eclectic eating nook.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Preppy
Style Secret: Layered PatternsThe preppy look is collected and curated, and a genteel mix of patterns lends itself to the aesthetic. Plaid is the iconic preppy print, but you also can't go wrong with stripes, houndstooth, gingham checks or herringbone, topped off with a tasteful needlepoint pillow or two. The key to mixing patterns is to pay attention to the scale and palette — too many large-scale prints will overwhelm each other; a bunch of small-scale ones can get lost. Colors don't have to match, but they should at least stay in the same family.Updated twist: Offset patterned pieces with textural elements to enhance the visual depth. In this breakfast area, basket-weave chairs complement the plaid banquette beautifully.

Preppy homes celebrate their hand-me-downs and family heirlooms in an artful way. Old steamer trunks, vintage suitcases and more whisper of a worldly, well-traveled lifestyle. Items that hint at the sporting life, such as old tennis racquets or riding gear, feel pitch perfect as well.
