The Union Jack ~ A British Classic


I am totally in love with the Union Jack.
This fabulous rocker chair above was
used by the Spice Girls. Yellow against
black lacquer with nailheads on a traditional
chair...Simply Brilliant! The chair was designed
by the company Halo from Altrincham in the UK.





A reupholstered Union Jack chair by Metro Sofa finished in silver.




The famous Vivienne Westwood Union
Jack rug for The Rug Company. Would
love one of these!



More from The Rug Company -
an embellished Union Jack Pillow.




And a Union Jack wall hanging
(also from The Rug Company.)






This is a really cool Union Jack coffee
table that lights up from Suck UK.




A more detailed look at this fabulous coffee table.




Union Jack cards that come in
many colors from Made By Girl.

Of course, no retro kitchen is complete
without a SMEG refrigerator.


A beautiful Union Jack pillow from Debenham's.





Isn't that cutest dog bed?





The Natural Store of the UK offers organic fabrics
and clothing. They offer this beautiful pillow in
all organic cotton.





The Queen is every bit as synonymous
with the UK as is the Union Jack. The items
above are available from Naked Decor.





Union Jack pillows in different colors
from Karen Hilton Design on Etsy.



I especially like her black and
white rendition of the pillow.





You can find out more about these gorgeous
Sepia toned Union Jack tiles here.




Isn't that the coolest Chesterfield sofa or what?







This ultra cool leather sofa is available




What a huge Union Jack flag in this very
cool British themed Pub in Cleveland, Ohio
called The Pub.


From Lavender Hill Interiors on Ebay.




Gorgeous Union Jack chair from a
Ben Sherman store in Macy's.
