With prints that range from bright nautical motifs to muted tone-on-tone metallics, Edie’s bedding and decorative pillows make a statement. These silk and linen beauties include dressmaker details such as tucking, beading, and contrast stitching done by artisans in India and China. The company’s less formal outdoor pillows boast vibrant hues and playful prints, as well as cool touches like sailor knots, basket-weave textures, and contrast piping.
Live alfresco in style with these teak furnishings and snazzy indoor/outdoor pillows. Gather the family ’round the oval and rectangular extension tables: There are enough chairs included to fit the whole crew. Then brighten up those seats with Edie’s machine-washable cushions, which come in wonderfully unexpected colors, patterns and textures.
September may be creeping up, but keep the summertime vibe going — and make sure the livin’ remains easy — with this blowout sale of staples for outdoor entertaining. Keep the (home) fires burning with grills from Sagaform and barbecue tools from Outset. Offer your guests a choice of beverages — between Vintotemp’s mini keg dispenser and 12-bottle thermoelectric cooler, you’ll have plenty on hand — and break open all the goodies from Giftcorp’s gourmet food baskets (blue corn chips or smoked almond, anyone?) You can also spiff up that patio decor with chic indoor/outdoor rugs and pillows from Couristan and Edie, respectively.
Couture techniques set these pillows apart. Especially fabulous are the designs adorned with laser-cut roses, or billowy fingers of fabric made to look like ostrich feathers. On the subtler side, there are myriad patterns with textural appeal, like concentric squares of mitered cord, herringbone pleats, and fabric draped for a wave-like effect.
Soothing while adding visual interest, geometrics are the oldest decorating pattern in the book. Incorporate them into your interior via accents like Angela Adams’ embroidered Shimmer pillows or with statement-makers like Missoni Home’s Dadi rug, whose confetti-like white squares punctuate its black background.
