Drew Barrymore has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by a fabric designer over a cushion pattern.

The Hollywood actress first partnered with executives at Walmart on the Drew Barrymore Flower Home collection back in March 2019, with the line comprised of decor and furniture pieces.

However, editors at TMZ reported on Thursday that Barrymore is facing a lawsuit from the team at Rule of Three Studio, who have claimed that she copied their Turkish Plume patterns on a cushion design.

Lawyers for the design studio have alleged that they started selling their version, which retails for between $315 and $565 (£250-£443), back in 2015, while the cushion in Barrymore’s range was launched last year.

They are suing both Barrymore and Walmart, and in court documents, requested that the company stop sales of the cushions and asked for all profits from the design as well additional damages.

The Santa Clarita Diet star and her representatives have not yet responded to the lawsuit.

Drew Barrymore Flower Home is the latest addition to Barrymore’s lifestyle empire, with the 45-year-old having first unveiled a range of cosmetics under the Flower banner in 2013 before going on to expand the line to include fragrance and eyewear.

“Drew Barrymore Flower Home is a whimsical, unpretentious collection of furniture and decor,” a Walmart spokesperson said of the designs at the time of the launch. “Inspired by Drew’s own personal aesthetic – and her ability to draw from every genre, style, and era – these gorgeous furnishings and must-have accents help you create a home that truly feels like an amazing mosaic map of yourself and your life.”
