Our Alice in Wonderland cushion is based on the glorious illustrations by Sir John Tenniel: a lobster preparing for a quadrille, a dodo wielding a walking stick, a hookah smoking caterpillar, the cheshire cat, so many wonderful images. Will you won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you won’t you join the dance?
