Full speed ahead updating a family room in my own home and must share some great finds.
I’m all for the ease and gentle price point of “semi-custom”, especially when it comes to decorative pillows. Of course, my eye always seems to settle on pricey fabrics– and with minimum yardage requirements for ordering plus labor this can bring the cost of a single pillow well into the triple digits. So what is a girl (or guy) to do?
Go online ! I found several great resources and just what I was looking for after spending about an hour surfing the web. One of my favorites is Lacefield Design, where you can view fabrics and finished pillows by color. Beth Lacefield offers textiles and pillows at a great price point. Her pillows are finished beautifully and have an artisanal feel. Another plus is that they are designed in Lacefield’s studio outside of Atlanta and are made locally.
And then there is Etsy. You’ll find great offerings here. Seems there are plenty of people out there with a good eye and a sewing machine. Many of the pillows are finished simply though– three seams and a zipper– no fancy trim. But designers can churn out (and sell) several pillows per yard, so offer them at bargain prices. And you’ll find gorgeous to-the -trade fabrics used as well as vintage textiles. Here is stylist Emily Henderson’s ” Etsy Throw Pillow Roundup” . Apartment Therapy also has a few hand-made Etsy favorites.
With a few keywords and clicks… look what I found:
Wow… so PillowMood (who has an art background, great taste and is from Boston) has already made me just what I need. I would have probably added some trim, but at $69.00 (!) it is a steal.
Surf, click…. done. Now this leaves me more time to obsess about something else. Like rugs.
