This collection spans genres far and wide. Depictions of strong women, transformative in their beauty and grace seem to inspire those around and uplifting observers from afield. From imperial works of art in various mediums, we found beauty in the artistry of ceramics to embroidery and created patterns and colours that speak to timeless accents. Creatures from butterflies to ducklings flutter in the wind and conjure the mood for autumn and a time to gather.

This month, we are sorry to miss out on the winter 2019 NYNOW show.
We have been working hard the last few months to prepare a new and exciting collection.
For the first time, we will launch the collection online and share the line over our website, Instagram and email.
Please stay tuned.
Our next show will be in April at High Point Market in North Carolina at the Suites at Market Square T802.
We are excited that three of our pillows were featured in recent editions of Home Accents today. Check them out at digipub.homeaccentstoday.com/ (subscription required)
In the following four pillows, we were mesmerized by the patterns in nature. The stripes of a Bengal tiger, the spots on a leopard, the dizzying striations of a zebra and a kaleidoscopic patchwork on a giraffe captivated our attention. Patterns seamlessly continue to the back with a knife edge finish and an invisible zipper. For this season, welcome the jungle into your home.

Poetric Imagination - An Exhibition at the Portland Art Museum
The following pillows were inspired from art works in the Rinpa School in Japan during 1500 - 1600. In each piece, landscapes are depicted with lively calligraphy. Techniques involving the application of gold leafs were applied in panels that varied in size. Selections from the collection of Mary and Cheney Cowles are on display at the Portland Art Museum OCT 13, 2018 – JAN 13, 2019.
Artistry in Embroidery
The following two pillows are printed examples of meticulous embroidery exhibited during imperial Chinese Ming dynasty. In soft silk, the original textile works of art were laborious feats that involved several weeks of weaving and planning. Each work usually depicted an auspicious element in culture. Here a lion looks to the east and a lumbar pillow depicts flowers and bats in autumn.
Join us next week at High Point Market. These pillows along with several new designs will be shown.

The following collection of pillows were inspired by the art movements of abstract expressionism. Colours in each pillow reflect a saturated hue in vibrant jewel tones.
Last week we completed our exhibit at the NYNOW show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. It was so good to see familiar faces and reconnect with friends. And it was also nice to showcase our wares and meet new friends. With a last minute cancellation from our neighbor, we were able to expand our booth into a 5' X 20' space, which made the booth far wider than before.
At the show we were able to share a few new pillows that really capture the imagination. Over the last few months we were enamored with the artistry of embroidery. Collections from the LACMA and George Washington University house works found from the Qing dynasty in China. Our reinterpretations and adaptations into a digital format and ultimately into a fabric and pillow were well received. Two examples below show whimsical motifs of creatures, sometimes real and sometimes mythical in these extraordinary creations in textiles.
A pair of floral pillows that were well complimented were inspired from Flemish painter Jan Frans van Dael. In cranberry and fuschia tulips came alive on a warm chocolaty backdrop.
