Rich colors and textures do not necessarily have to go the way of the dodo in our world where modernism and minimal seem to rule the interior design palate of todays tastes. We found these pillows from Kevin Obrien in richly colored reds and oranges and then threw them on to our couch, which had recently been reupholster after almost ten years. We kept a very nice oatmeal color for the couch to help hide the dirt, and now the pillows really make the whole room pop and vibrant.
Kevin Obrien starts around $100 and goes all the way up to about $400 per pillow, pricey but worth it. You can find him at ABC Carpet and home and One Kings Lane, or you can check out his site for a very comprehensive, although not quite complete list of retailers.
