No doubt there will many differing opinions on these two items, but hopefully a few of you can appreciate the color and pattern of these antique sari throws.
Traditional quilts with an exotic edge add glimpses of another culture to your surroundings. Each is an original, handmade in India by artisans who work lengths and patches of vintage cotton saris into stunning throws for sofa, chair or bed. Hand quilted and reversible; colors and patterns will vary. Dry clean. Imported. Each is one-of-kind and subject to prior sale.

So, instead of spending $1000-$2000 on a new sofa or chair, you could just spend $450 on a throw to cover up your old one. Whether or not that’s a good idea is up to you.

The black and white abstract print of this bedding by DwellStudio is a perfect counterpoint to a strong accent color, either on a room’s walls or as a bold border on sheets.
Designed for comfort, but beautiful enough to hang on the wall: DwellStudio’s Abstractions collection draws inspiration from the world of modern art. Abstract motifs, simple lines, and bold colors predominate on styles that will appeal to the most discerning palates.

These stones by Ronel Jordaan seem to be quite a bit larger than the Felt Rocks by Molo, and they would be excellent cushions to add here and there around a living space. (I’ve listed links for two different retailers; whoever had the lower price got the link for that particular item.)
Socially conscious as well as gifted, Jordaan has set up a women’s workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg-where her personally trained artisans transform interlocking fibers, made from 100% merino wool, into these freeform oversized “stone” floor cushions…Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back. Hand washable in cold water.

I’ve been doing some pillow shopping for my living room (been on a sans-pillow kick for a while) and want to mix things up with a colorful pattern.

I heart this embroidered pillow- for the script on front, yes, and also for the embroidery on the back (click on link to see detail).
Our over-sized Fair & Square pillow is an embroidered cushion in Chinese hemp. The cushion’s deco-design was developed by FairTrade Designers with inspiration from traditional ethnic chinese embroidery and Danish embroidered tradition with the ‘Home Sweet Home’ cushion, which carries a message that signals personal values.
Available in collegiate lettering or script.
The back side of each pillow is brightly embroidered with the name & hand print of the person who made it.
