Staiths Cushion


Introducing the Dunston Staiths Heritage Cushion - a unique blend of history, artistry, and comfort, designed exclusively for those who cherish the allure of England's industrial past. Crafted by the talented local artist, Corinne Lewis-Ward, this one-of-a-kind cushion boasts a hand-drawn depiction of the iconic Dunston Staiths, accentuated by the presence of selected birds native to this remarkable location.

Dunston Staiths stands as a testament to the industrial heritage of the North East, particularly in the Tyne and Wear region. Originally constructed in 1893, these imposing wooden structures served as vital coal-loading facilities, facilitating the transportation of coal from the neighboring collieries to ships waiting on the River Tyne. At its peak, Dunston Staiths was the largest wooden structure in Europe, a towering symbol of the region's industrial prowess.

Today, while the coal industry has waned, Dunston Staiths remains a cherished heritage site, offering visitors a glimpse into a bygone era. Its weathered timbers tell the story of toil and triumph, while the surrounding natural beauty provides solace and sanctuary for a variety of bird species.

In this exquisite cushion design, Corinne Lewis-Ward captures the essence of Dunston Staiths, blending intricate detail with a touch of nostalgia. The black and white motif pays homage to the site's historical significance, while the inclusion of native birds adds a whimsical charm, reminding us of the vibrant life that now thrives amidst the remnants of industry.

Each cushion is made to order, ensuring that every piece is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. Whether adorning your favorite armchair or serving as a conversation starter in your living room, the Dunston Staiths Heritage Cushion is sure to be a cherished addition to your home décor collection.
