I am happy to announce my line of custom throw pillows, all created from original, vintage, mid-century textiles is now available!
For the past few months I have been on the hunt for mid-century fabrics that showcase a different side of modernism; not just the typical Eames-style, playful, atomic-age version of the period (not matter how great these textiles can be), but instead a more Hollywood Regency, updated historic, artistic side.
I was on the hunt for textiles the Grand Dames of interior design like Dorothy Draper or Madeleine Castaing might use. Textiles that are bold, painterly and elegant, and would feel right at home in a modern interior (or atop any of my restored antique or vintage seating pieces!)
To introduce these new products, all are discounted now through January 1st. All below reflect pricing including down pillow insert, but are all available without insert upon request. I do have some additional fabric if you are interested in additional pillows.
Contact me direct to arrange for payment and shipping; gift wrapping is also available for the holidays!
