Part of a new series “Legends from the Ancient North”, The Saga of the Volsungs is one of the classic books that influenced JRR Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings”.
Named after the year in which the London furniture and home accessory company Heal’s was established, the line Heal’s 1810 celebrates the launch of its first own fabric collection since the 1970′s.
This time they’ve worked with a number of designers and amongst them is Petra Börner. The Lady Jane print, designed by Petra Börner, is based on vintage horticultural images and combines floral imagery with bold lines and sharp colors, reminiscent of the English Arts and Crafts Movement. This coordinating accessories line will be available in the shape of notebooks, kitchen textiles, cushions, scarves, outdoor furniture etc.
“Legends from the Ancient North” are five classics of Norse literature that inspired J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic vision in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Reading them brings us as close as we will ever get to the magical worlds of the Vikings and the origins of their twentieth-century counterpart: Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
