The homewares line spearheaded by late celebrity Charlotte Dawson will be launched this month to carry on the much-loved media personality’s legacy in support of her favourite charities. The range of handmade Balinese canvas cushions and coasters carries elegant old world-style images of palm trees, elephants, ships and toucans that will add a whimsical touch to any indoor or outdoor area.
Charlotte first fell in love with the cushions on a holiday to Bali when she spotted them at the villa belonging to her longtime friend of 25 years, homewares designer Billy Allen. Charlotte styled the cushions around Billy’s Seminyak villa, taking snaps to post on Instagram. The pair collaborated and the line Charlotte Dawson Home was born. The business was already rolling ahead before Charlotte’s passing in late February. She was so passionate about the cushions that they became her main focus, the warming designs having caught her keen eye for style, beauty and fun. The new homewares line was also one of the many ways in which she planned to expand her talents in the coming year.
Seven different styles of cushions are in the range with colourful designs printed on white canvas. Patterns include a black and white elephant, a large cruise liner in two shades on white and orange background, toucans in two sizes as well as a palm tree.
The homewares line is being run by one of Charlotte’s long-time friends, Jai Evans, who had partnered with her on the project. Jai wanted to continue both Charlotte’s legacy and support of her favourite charities.
“Charlotte is still with us, she was always there for others, and this is a great opportunity to give back. This will put a smile on Charlotte’s face wherever she is now.”
Proceeds from the sale of the handmade Indonesian cushions and coasters will be donated to Charlotte’s favourite charities: Lifeline, Community Brave, ACON, Variety’s Smile Program, and Angels Goals for whom Charlotte campaigned relentlessly.
