Inspired by a cushion from the island of Nisyros, this ornate design features a diamond-in-square pattern created by triangle and arrow motifs. It has a lovely contrast of strong geometrics with delicate floral and leaf motifs offset by graceful little borders. Worked in a traditional Mediterranean palette of terra cotta, soft olive, ecru and two shades of teal blue, it makes a stunning cushion cover or table square.
