Introducing the Timorous Beasties Thistle Azure Duvet Set at Jones and Tomlin. One of Timorous Beasties’ classic designs, the iconic Thistle presented in an eye catching azure blue is bound to bring in the spirit of the highlands. Created back in 1990, the large scale Thistle bedding in a striking mirrored composition is printed onto 220 thread count cotton sateen base and is framed with a satin stitch detail and a sophisticated Oxford Edge. Oxford pillowcase(s) are supplied within the packaging and are also available to purchase separately, if required.

Timorous Beasties Thistle Azure Duvet Set at Jones & Tomlin – an aesthetic evolution to time-honoured motifs

Timorous Beasties’ work embodies a unique diversity of pattern, ranging from design that echoes a golden age of copperplate engraving (a time-honoured classic is the Thistle range; or Merian Palm superwide wallpaper) to examples of a distinctly edgy nature, an elegant transgression, a display of chic irreverence. Yet, the studio fully engages a design discourse with textile's history by lending an aesthetic evolution to time-honoured motifs.

In 2004 Timorous Beasties unveiled their critically acclaimed Glasgow Toile: by reversing the pastoral context of toiles de Jouy, they transformed the traditional toile device to create an exclusively modern urban genre. The Hotch Blotch fabric series challenges a 1000-year old aesthetic mode by placing disorder within the structure of damask pattern to reveal the inherent beauty of splatters, drips and blotches. Hunting Toile and Urban wallpapers mark a synthesis of 18th-century Chinoiserie groupings, Rococo swirls and Victorian silhouette paper cuts to create a uniquely contemporary ornamental textiles pattern repeat. The art critic John Ruskin related a universal connection between nature, art and society. Timorous Beasties share a similar world view, where plants, animals and society are visually inextricable. They are devoted to how that impacts as pattern design in our daily experience of furnished spaces, from one-bedroom flats to country villas, to the halls of civic and government buildings, departure lounge backdrops, boutique enclaves, restaurants, and hotels.
