Cushions fill gap in market

FUN DESIGNS: Kate Lorking, of Hush Rumble, with some of her quirky homewares.

WHEN Kate Lorking decided to decorate the room of her first-born child, she grew despondent as she searched high and low.

“I couldn’t find anything suitable for her room,” she said.

“I wanted something that was gender-neutral – but the market was just oversaturated with the same things.

“Even later when I was looking to decorate my son’s room I noticed that it was all about trucks, cars or the colour blue. “

For this reason she started up her textile homewares business, called Hush Rumble.

She finished up with her job in the legal industry and moved to Newcastle with the news of the impending birth.

Ms Lorking is now living in Broadmeadow and is continuously evolving her sewing, a craft she took up in 2009.

Hush Rumble specialises in making quirky pillows, with the designs including clouds, ice-cream and cactuses.

“They are quite playful and have a sense of humour,” Ms Lorking said.

The cushions range in price from $15 to $60 and can be found at The Olive Tree Market Christmas market series throughout the rest of the year.

“I just love watching people’s reactions when they walk past my stall,” Ms Lorking said.

■ The Olive Tree Market Christmas market series is on at The Junction Public School from 9am to 3pm, November 15, December 6 and December 20. The markets are supported by The Star.
