Mod Peacock Pillows

129twigandvine_peacock_pillow2

Inspired as I am by Danish modern art and design, I tried my hand at it last spring and made several peacock illustrations for Wild Apple. The art was picked up by several home furnishing companies, among them Manual Weavers and Woodworkers. These production samples arrived at the office this week and I’m tickled by my quirky birds, all puffed up and cheery.

These are indoor outdoor pillows, and will appear in their spring offerings to their clients. Fingers crossed that they’ll end up in retail down the line.

    Gorgeous design! And I especially love they are for outdoor pillows, I am always a fan of outdoor design being just as classy as indoor. Seems like porches and yards get forgotten sometimes, but I would prefer to spend most of my time out there in the warm weather!
