pillow talk

I have a new Etsy addiction: pillows.

It’s not the worst addiction I suppose.

The versatility of pillows render them a key design element in a room since they can be changed up on a whim.  Don’t make the mistake of upholstering a large piece of furniture in the latest trendy fabric or colour that you may regret next year.  Instead, go with something neutral and classic, then add personality to your room with colour, texture, and pattern with pillows!

Here are eight of my favourite pillow vendors on Etsy:

  • The Cottage Cupboard – a Canadian shop with lots of lovely suzani, ikat, and modern designer fabrics
  • Sukan – amazing collection ethnic/global  pillows – think suzanis, ikats, and kilims
  • {me}longins studio – gorgeous Eco-friendly handprinted textiles
  • Nicole Tarasick – for a good dose of chic Canadiana
  • Turquoise Tumbleweed – huge selection of modern and traditional designer fabrics
  • Lajoyade – I am obsessed with this silk ikat
  • Woodyliana – nice selection of Schumacher, Robert Allen, and Kelly Wearstler prints
  • Aletafae – ok, so these aren’t pillows but awesome fabric ottomans! I just purchased one for a client

Do you have any favourite pillow sources? Do share!

    Yes, Trendy Pillows on Etsy! These pillows are double-sided, pattern matched and corded. A great way to change up the look of your room is to rotate your pillows.
