Poetic Pillow is thrilled to announce our collaboration
with San Francisco artist Usha Shukla.
Poetic Pillow x Usha Shukla brings her beautiful work into your home by combining our innovative fabric printing with Usha’s vibrant designs. We are featuring several new pillows from two of Usha’s series, keeping with our vision to transform your home and create meaningful space through art and design.
Originally from India, Usha has always been fascinated with the outdoors, and her paintings reflect her deep love of nature. After an extensive education, Usha realized her true passion for art on a visit to the Louvre Museum in Paris. She then completed her graduate program at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, focusing on painting.
In this stunning display, one can almost feel the delicate breath of a sweet flower opening to the new day. As Usha said recently, "I see nature as hues and textures: A leaf is no longer a leaf and a cloud, nothing but shifting colors. The color palette is derived from the harmony of colors I perceive in nature."
USH-006 Morning Light
Inspired by the time Usha Shukla spent in her garden, “Morning Light” represents the harmony of colors in nature through vibrant blues and purples with a touch of green. This lumbar pillow is made of our supremely silky soft poly satin fabric. Art works are printed on the front and back. Each has a knife edge finish, and an invisible zipper is located at the bottom of each pillow. Inserts are stuffed with feather and down. Covers are removable and machine washable in cold gentle cycle. Hang dry or tumble dry in low heat and warm iron if necessary.
USH-005 Sunshine Blue
Inspired by the constant movement of light and shadow in nature, “Sunshine Blue” by Usha Shukla portrays bold shades of blue intermingled with soft white space. Evoking the energy and vitality of earth's bounty, Usha paints large abstract paintings in vibrant colors. Instead of using conventional tools such as brushes and palette knives, Usha has developed a unique process of mark-making using an air blower to move the paint on wood panels.
USH-002 Achillea Mustard Gold
Achillea Mustard Gold by Usha Shukla was inspired by the constant movement of light and shadow she perceived in nature. Shades of gold, white, blue and green come together harmoniously to create a vibrant work of art.
USH-001 Achillea Pecan
Overwhelmingly beautiful deep shades of gold and red are balanced by strokes of white, blue and green.
USH-003 Sunrose Lava
“Sunrose Lava” by Usha Shukla was inspired by the movement of light and shadow she perceived in nature, and is a striking display of vibrant shades of red that create movement and depth throughout the design.
"Sunrose Flamenco" was inspired by her perception of light and shadow in nature, and displays bold shades of red intermingled with darker shadows to create the appearance of movement and depth throughout the design. Each of the lumbar pillows in this series measure 12"X28".
USH-004 Sunrose Flamenco
Usha’s work is prized by several local art collectors, and she has an extensive list of accolades. She now serves as an Art Commissioner on the Alameda County Arts Commission.
We at Poetic Pillow are thrilled to bring the fruits of this collaboration to your living spaces. Pillows are printed on the front and back on a silky satin fabric. Edges are knife edge finished and an invisible zipper enclosure is included at the bottom. Pillows are stuffed with a cotton lined feather and down insert.
Available now in 12" x 28" size. MSRP $148.00 each
O friend beloved, whose curious skill
Keeps bright the last year’s leaves and flowers,
With warm, glad, summer thoughts to fill
The cold, dark, winter hours …
By John Greenleaf Whittier
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
What a show -- it was a whirlwind! So delightful to see you all. Always a true joy to make new friends.
And such a thrill to host everyone in our much larger showroom! We occupied two adjacent spaces, giving us the luxurious ability to display the depth and breadth of our offerings. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase brand new creations as well as time-tested designs.
We also enjoyed seeing which items grabbed your attention!
Designs that Stirred the Soul and Took the Spotlight
The colors of the season spoke to so many of you. Melanie de Comolera's autumn rust and burnt orange was perhaps the favorite in bedding. Though she is best known for her works on porcelain, we love the brilliant sense of drama in her copy of a still life by Van Huysum.
DLA-037-KDE Comolera Floral Duvet Ensemble
Our duvet ensemble includes one duvet cover and two matching shams. Covers and shams are made of 100% cotton sateen. Our duvet covers all include an invisible zipper at the bottom for easy access for washing. Pillow shams have an envelope closure at the back for access. Duvet covers and pillow shams are all machine washable. Each are made one at a time in Canada.
The stirring Embroidery Lion of Tibet, standing guard in regal warm mustard and earth tones, once again carried the day. Not a surprise -- it has always been one of our biggest sellers.
FMA-020A+020B Tibetan Lion Pillow A+B
Made of supremely silky satin, designs are printed on the front and back. Edges are invisible-edge finished, and a hidden zipper is located at the bottom of each pillow. Inserts are lovingly stuffed with feather and down. Each pillow is hand made one at a time.
Rest assured, you can always remove the cover and machine wash it in cold gentle cycle. Hang dry or tumble dry in low heat and touch up with warm iron if necessary.
Did you know that everyone seems to love our Crane designs? In Japan, cranes are a symbol of luck and longevity. Here in this pair of pillows, a trio of cranes gather and graze gracefully.
