Penney + Bennett | New Printed Linen + Art


Ever since attending their launch party last year, I have been smitten with New Zealand brand Penney + Bennett. Bursting onto the interiors scene with their incredible printed silk and organic linen collection featured in this New + Noted post, it is impossible not to be wowed by the quality and uniqueness of the designs. Founded by Loren Marks and Sarah Carson, the fine art graduates who met at college "are devoted to creating simplicity, materiality and questioning the conventional in contemporary textile living ware." Having had the pleasure of using their stunning silk products in this bedroom shoot, I leapt at the chance of styling their new range of products for today's post. 

Part of the Momoyama collection, Penney + Bennett have released their exquisite designs in a luxurious, heavyweight linen. Still available in silk, the linen provides an exciting variation and new textural element. Available in two sizes, you can purchase the cushions either unfilled, or with feather inners. Knowing only too well how beautifully the designs compliment one another, it makes sense that the pillowcases are sold individually rather than as a pair, allowing for customised styling choices. 

To show how well they transition from the bedroom to the living room, here's a look at some of the new linen scatter cushions on our sofa. Along with favourites the White Thatch and Black Thatch designs, the Blue Water and Grey Water work in beautifully with my recently updated picture wall.

Penney + Bennett have also launched their first range of Art Prints. Hand gilded to achieve a unique, textured effect, no two prints are exactly the same. Of course I couldn't resist including one on my wall, with the gorgeous Blue Water Print shown above. Available in two sizes unframed, custom sizes can also be made on request. 

For the bedroom styling I had a lot of fun layering patterns and playing with different design combinations. The options are endless, and regardless of what you choose the textural effect is simply heavenly. I love how some of the art prints replicate the linens, and all feature pretty touches of gold. 

Also available as gift cards, these make lovely keepsakes or affordable little prints for your walls, as shown below.
