Traditional lemon print cushions
Lemon printed fabrics can definitely suit traditional decorating style. Citrus fruits have featured in fabric and wallpaper designs for centuries. Just think of William Morris’ Four Fruits design, which featured limes and pomegranates. Morris & Co now produce a Lemon Tree design inspired by the original fruit pattern.

You can order your throw pillow with double sided pattern or a matching cream/beige fabric on the back.
Lemon cushions in mid-century modern decor
Mid-century modern style seems to be very popular at the moment. It’s an interior design style that became popular in the 1940’ss (post war).

When it comes to prints and fabrics, mid-century modern patterns are characteristically simple or geometric shapes.
