When people think of the Brutalist style of buildings, coziness and comfort is not the first thing that will come to mind; that is until they lay eyes on these pieces of architectural home decor. Inspired by the movement that flourished during the 1950s straight through to the mid-1970s, these cushions, blankets and odd furniture designs are surprisingly homey.

Designed by London studio Custhom, which was founded by Nathan Philpott and Jemma Ooi, graduates of the Royal College of Art, the architectural home decor pairs bold and basic patterns with soft colors and inviting materials that would make anyone want to cuddle up to them. Making up the Hayward collection, the architectural home decor is made using a cotton-flax mix fabric that is produced by a British mill, whose craftsmen have been weaving textiles in the U.K. since 1720.
