Welcome to Charleston! - Brand new collection by Amy Sinibaldi

Charleston by Amy Sinibaldi

We're thrilled to have taken stock of our latest collection - Charleston by Amy Sinibaldi. Get lost in dreamy hues of blue and raspberry and let Charleston transport you with all it's southern hospitality.

Pineapples, umbrellas and barnacles!

What could be more surreal than this daydream inducing collection of summer ready prints. Themes include 'Garden of Dreams' and 'Teacups' and the more intriguing 'Barnacles' (trust us you'll love it).

Chic and fresh

There's something so chic about the simplicity of this collection but it's subtler details aren't to be missed like the delicate bees included in Garden of Dreams or the sprigs of samphire included in Barnacles.

Feeling inspired?

We're overcome by the flexibility of this collection. It brings together an appreciation of geometric shapes and the subtle softness of garden blooms and tea time happiness, meaning it would lend itself to any setting and unlimited projects.

Yours, making a throw for the lounge x
