It’s been quite a while since I debuted new pillows! This year, I decided to change things up a little bit. Rather than debuting two big collections per year (one in Spring, and one in Fall), I decided to release a smaller number of products more frequently, so that things would feel fresher around the studio. It’s been pretty busy at Cotton & Flax HQ — this year, I’ve debuted new tea towels, lavender sachets (which sold out in record time), and patterned notebooks. Phew!
While there are no new patterns in today’s debut, I spent weeks choosing the colors I wanted to add to the collection, and I was surprised by the new shades I finally landed on. The biggest surprise for me was blush pink! I’m certainly not known for being very girly, but this mural by Michelle Weinberg on the Wolfsonian Museum in Miami was so striking, it convinced me that pink + black = next level modernity that needs to be in your home.
I also wasn’t planning to add more blue to the collection, but this bright indigo fabric was calling to me. It just feels so fresh, and adds a nice pop of color to the collection. Love the way it looks next to our gold pillows — really shows off the best traits of both fabrics.
Another new favorite: the dusty blue plus pillow on the top of this pile. This fabric has a subtle warmth to it — a result of being a yarn-dyed linen. I really enjoy this fabric paired with the indigo, or this grey pillow, which you may recognize…
… A return of an old favorite fabric, the black chambray linen! This fabric has a lot of dimension, due to the heathered weave of the chambray fabric, which adds a little complexity to the pattern.
I’m so grateful to have been able to work with Laure Joliet to shoot these pillows! She continues to be one of my favorite artists, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Hooray for collaborating with friends!
