Our full 2017 line of designer, fine art, luxury pillows is comprised of four foundation collections and Studio Musings. The foundation collections are designed to interact with one another, creating visual texture when mingling pattern and color. The patterns will remain in the collection over several years with new colors showing up season to season. Of course, new patterns will emerge from the studio, joining existing collections and offering new directions as well.
The images created by artist Katherine Henry are the starting point for these collections, intended to grace a bed, chaise or sofa. The textile designs are both elegant and whimsical, traditional and yet perfectly add a note of curvilinear interest in the clean crisp Belgian and Scandinavian decor that is appearing in distinctive homes across the world.
Our pillows, printed on charmeuse or dupioni silk, receive a chinese dupioni silk back in a color that either matches or complements one of the primary colors of the front imagery. These silks are the finest of their kind that we have found, with remarkably consistent quality and rich colors. Slubs found in the material are a natural part of this kind of fabric and we chose dupioni silk to add that texture to our pieces.
Pillows printed on 100% cotton are backed with a mixed natural European linen. The linen chosen for the collection presented through 2017 has a soft hand and a mixed weave, with oatmeal to cream color variations and thick and thin threads. After much deliberation, this linen was chosen for the way it feels against the skin and for its visual interest and neutral palette.
