CDA-013 Vallotton Caste Suzanne 22X22
Movements of Modernism
This fall we explored the world of Felix Vallotton in finding inspiration from portraits, genre paintings and landscape masterpieces. Each pillow is fully saturated in colors that conjure emotion. Patterns are created kaleidoscopically from Valloton’s subjects and find geometry in a pillow form. The result is a collection of pillows that not only offer pops of colour in luxurious finishes of sateen to velvet but also lets us delve into the settings and sentiments painted by Vallotton. In the above pillow, we patterned a remnant of a painting titled La Chaste Suzanne by Vallotton and created a surrealistic imagery over hues of purple. These along with matching throws and more will be on exhibit at High Point Market in October of 2019. Pillows are currently available for pre-sale on our wholesale website at poeticpillow.com.

Each Day A Life
By Robert William Service
I count each day a little life,
With birth and death complete;
I cloister it from care and strife
And keep it sane and sweet.
With eager eyes I greet the morn,
Exultant as a boy,
Knowing that I am newly born
To wonder and to joy.
And when the sunset splendours wane
And ripe for rest am I,
Knowing that I will live again,
Exultantly I die.
O that all Life were but a Day
Sunny and sweet and sane!
And that at Even I might say:
“I sleep to wake again.”
Paintings by Felix Vallotton are currently on exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
