We are thrilled to announce the launch of our Riley Sheehey capsule collection! The collection is comprised of five pillow designs created with Riley’s fabric collection featuring her original paintings which highlight the whimsical charm, soft color palette, and thoughtful design that define her fine art.
“Established in 2014 during her summer vacation from teaching, Riley Sheehey’s artist studio brings joy and beauty to people’s lives through whimsical illustration and hand-painted objects, surface design, and creative collaboration. Her artwork is inspired by vintage patterns, antique botanical prints, children’s literature, and the natural world. While her work and new ventures are constantly evolving, she continues to prioritize incorporating personal elements in her art that connect the viewer with her practice.”
We have had the pleasure of collaborating with Riley to create designs for Christian Ladd Home and were overjoyed to hear she would be expanding her designs into textiles. Each down pillow in this capsule collection was crafted in our workroom and hand sewn using a cotton/linen blend fabric from Riley’s exquisite fabric line backed with a coordinating cotton and a matching, small polished cotton welt. Our pillows are double lined and include a down insert. The single lumbar design is crafted with Riley’s Daisy pattern on both the front and the back side and includes a white ribbon flange. Because they are handmade and hand sewn, each style is limited in quantities made specifically for this capsule collection.
It’s too difficult to choose a favorite from the five styles we created with each of them being just as special as the next. Each textile’s pattern draws from Riley’s signature whimsical color palettes and attention to detail. We are particularly fond of the Rosa Pink Pillow for a little girl’s room but love it just as much paired with the Rosa Blue for a vibrant pop of color in a living space.
