Hex and Henbane by Lucy Bentley 

Henbane Linen Cushion 

Featuring swirling foliage dotted with tiny golden flies.  

‘As to the arsenic scare a greater folly it is hardly possible to imagine: the doctors were bitten as people were bitten by the witch fever’ – William Morris

The 'Witch Fever' collection plays on this idea of a hidden killer in the home, alluding to the poisonous qualities of such prints through colour and symbolic imagery, allowing you to translate a piece of history into the modern home. Morris implied that he thought the doctors were using the dyes as a scapegoat for illnesses which they couldn’t otherwise diagnose, in a way similar to how people would blame their own misfortune on witch craft.

Taking inspiration from Historical styles and processes, curious concepts with a darker edge. 

Hex & Henbane is a British luxury home décor brand, specializing in wallcoverings and printed textiles with a dark edge and a story to tell. The brand was established in 2018 by Derbyshire based designer Lucy Bentley, as she completed her final year studying Decorative Arts. 

Lucy has always had a keen interest in historical design, spending her weekends growing up exploring National Trust properties and local stately homes, enchanted by their interiors and the stories they held. It perhaps comes as no surprise that this is where she draws much of the inspiration from for her own work.

More about the artist...

 Lucy holds the Arts and Crafts movement particularly dear; their attitudes towards fine craftsmanship, heritage and tradition resonating strongly with her – themes which she tries to carry through into her practice. She particularly aims to push the boundaries between fine art and design, working with curious, magical concepts to make her designs become the talking point of any room.  

Each design is meticulously hand illustrated by Lucy, before being digitally printed by local suppliers to the highest quality.
