Cushion ‘n’ Art

About This Project

CUSHnART is a unique brand of boutique designer homewares and accessories. CUSHnART’s creator, Selene, an Australian who has called Vietnam home since 2005, is the embodiment of the East-West experience. Her partner and child are Japanese. From documentary filmmaking, she became a designer by happy accident when her partner, Hiro set up their boutique printing & sewing enterprise in Ho Chi Minh City in 2012. While drawing inspiration from the East, Selene brings her distinctly Western lens and artistic traveler soul to her designs. Selene’s passion is to repurpose and reinvent, and to capture the bold, the unseen, the forgotten. Whether it’s transforming oriental and traditional motifs into modern homewares; reviving colonial and vintage designs into hip accessories; or transforming everyday street grunge into high fashion, CUSHnART will always surprise.
