Custom Silkscreen Pet Pillow

These pillows might seem a little silly to people who don’t have pets, but if you’ve ever had a beloved four-legged friend, you’ll certainly understand. And, for anyone who’s ever considered the other way to keep their pet around, this would definitely be a less expensive (and saner?) alternative. If you don’t have a pet but like the idea of an animal pillow, don’t forget about the Fauna Pillows by Ross Menuez.

Chad Wys Portrait Cushions

Strange pillows, you say? Well, let’s just take a closer look. In collaboration with artist Chad Wys, mineheart is offering these digitally printed portrait cushions that are delightfully weird- and one that’s altogether creepy. Using similar imagery to classic old masters paintings, each design plays around with parts of the face to create a strange mix of digital erasure and traditional portrait painting. Interesting.

Meg Callahan Quilts

Holy. How nice is it to see some super modern graphic patterns applied to quilts? Matter has three of Meg Callahan’s quilts entitled ‘Spine’, ‘Ada’, and ‘Harrah’ on their website, and while the prices aren’t listed, we’ll assume they’ll not be what most of us would call affordable. They are, however, what most of us would call amazing. The Spine and Ada quilts use digital printing and industrial machine quilting while Harrah is an entirely hand stitched patchwork.

Geo Pillow

Designer Mika Barr has released her first collection in a series named Geo, a pattern derived from the world of Origami paper-folding. Pretty terrific, don’t you think? So terrific it might require begging/purchasing of luggage space from the next European traveler to the states. Or paying extra for international shipping, of course.

Seat Cushions by Grain de couleur

Ooo, more eye trickery, and this time it benefits our derrière. Grain de Couleur specializes in digital printing on fabric, and as you can see here, they’ve created these seat cushions that have the look of other various materials, front and back. They are a bit on the smallish (and poofy) side, so take note of the size before buying a full set for a dining chair makeover.

RELAX Quilted Picnic Blanket

Of course, the weather is not anywhere nice enough to have a picnic outside, but there’s only a few of these ‘RELAX’ blankets around, and you’d be upset if you missed out just because it’s January. Seeing as the blanket is quilted and looks rather robust, it would do well as a sit-and-dine surface*. Plus, we all need reminding to stop and smell the roses, no matter what our surroundings may be.
