Pillow embroidered with the word 'Life' (Fine Cell Work)

'Accents' (otherwise known as cushions, throws and the like) are usually the simplest way to bring a look into your interior. There is a wide range of graphic cushions on the market, including the now almost ubiquitous black and white Bus Destination models. An interesting take on the embroidered word comes from Fine Cell Work, a charity that teaches prisoners sewing and needlepoint. LIFE, pictured above, is by Emily Peacock who is renowned for her interest in type and lettering.
