We're delighted to announce the launch of a NEW COLLECTION of our designs - the Raw Luxe Collection. This collection offers luxurious antique and vintage textiles given the Utopia treatment to bring them into the contemporary fold.
Raw Luxe specialises in creating contemporary atmospheric interiors that exude a faded grandeur with a twist of casual chic. The Collection celebrates the tactile and sensuous qualities of old fabrics with their natural imperfections and worn narratives. We source antique and vintage textiles that capture a palpable sense of history in their weave and drape, then mix them to create new interfaces for interior accessories - thus making enduring and unique style statements.
All the creations in the Raw Luxe Collection are one-offs, we may be able to find and make something similar that happily partners another, but none will be exactly the same.
Raw Luxe Collection: Luxury Vintage Velvet & Handwoven
Antique French Linen Cushions
Sumptuous cushions created from softly faded, vintage velvet that has beenutopiaisedto create unique patterns on the front face of the cushions. The velvet is 'framed' with a flange of French antique handwoven linen with a great natural slub texture. The reverse is made of the same antique fabric with a deep envelope to contain the cushion pad.
A British-made cushion pad is included in the price.
A variety of sizes are available in this design.
Raw Luxe Collection: Embroidered Antique Linen Cushions
Little cushions created from finely embroidered vintage/antique cloths with linen envelope backs.
We love the sophisticated texture of white embroidery on white cloth and enjoy how the light plays on the surface creating shadows.
A British-made, duck feather cushion pad is included in the price.
A variety of sizes are available.
Care for your Cushions
Old textiles require careful laundering to maintain their beauty and attractive handle.
1. Wash your item by hand using warm water and soap flakes.
2. Rinse well in warm water and dry flat.
3. Iron on reverse if necessary.
The Best of British Design and Craftsmanship
We are passionate about harnessing traditional British trade and craft skills to make our exclusive designs, so expect: well made creations with a strong attention to detail.
We’re on the move to new and bigger premises in Holt, Norfolk.
After 5 years of building a unique business at Creake Abbey, it was time for us to expand and relocate. Hence, from mid November, the high street in the pretty Georgian town of Holt will have us as a new independent retailer. Based in a listed Victorian shop, with its stunning facade: ornate cast iron windows and creative brickwork, Utopia will bring a wealth of new design and creation to the town.
Holt is famed for its plethora of independent shops and cafes, historic architecture and wonderful festivals. We have always loved the town, since we first visited some 12 years ago, so now to join this vibrant community is a real treat.
The expanded site will enable us to showcase more of our designs, concepts and art.
