THE UNION JACK'S OTHER JOB.


RULE, RULE, BRITANNIA
This is for you over there in England or in the wider British "world' and for the entire Anglophile community of which I am a card carrying member. My friend Nan Mabon who so graciously writes the column The London Bulletin for my blog, had included this piece of furniture in her column (see the post again here) and it made me think of other Union Jacks I had seen in Googleland that were NOT flying over a government building, but rather jazzing up interiors. 
These striking pieces, an antique Sofa, a fabulous chaise and two Anglo-Indian smaller pieces have been given a shot of "modern" with the use of a very well placed Union Jack fabric.

A small dose lights up a very soft corner.
A haphazard stitched version 

Vivienne Westwood managed to translate the look of a very old and faded flag into a fun wool rug.

Even the mini, THE fun British car par excellence, gets the Union Jack treatment with a whimsical "hat".

God save the Queen.
