Helen Chislett features Taylor Howes’s bespoke Lesage embroidered owl cushion in her FT How to Spend It article looking at how “menagerie meets menage in the wildly maximalist trend for fauna – and flora-infused interiors”.

“Taylor Howes’ inaugural Love at Dusk collection also evokes whimsy in the form of an embroidered and beaded Night Owl cushion (£2,520), inspired by a 1920’s Chanel handbag with a similar motif and created in collaboration with couture house Maison Lesage. “It represents the magical, ethereal time when day slowly seeps into the night,” says CEO Karen Howes. “Each Cushion is hand-stitched with gold thread and every crystal bead is placed by hand”.
