Laura Ashley contemporary

Laura Ashley is not a brand well-known for contemporary design – quite the opposite in fact – but I’ve been a quiet admirer of the brand’s (rather well hidden) more modern pieces for a while now. Speed-browsing the latest catalogue at a friend’s new home, I was stopped mid-flick on several occasions, especially by the lighting, but also by other products such as the neutral Logan wallpaper (a fabulous £26 per roll), with its graphic mid-century nod. And of course no one would suspect that your amazing gold-lined ceramic pendant light (a homage to Pols Potten’s extremely wonderful Buffer light, I suspect) or angular steel floor lamp was from Laura Ashley, because they’d never think to look there.
