Hand Painted Artistic Pillow
€ 137

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta joins the famous tradition of Dutch artists by drawing a landscape, only hers is a VELVET MASTERPIECE. For her part, Annyta offers this hand painted artistic pillow called FAR HORIZON.

The Dutch culture resonates with words like “horizon” and “sea,” because they were always the world’s travelers, seeking new markets and places of wonder. In her hand painted artistic pillow, it seems as though Annyta wants to CAPTURE AN ORANGE SUNRISE OR A SUNSET peeking through the brown mist of the earth.

The beautiful blue shading could be THE SKY OR THE SEA. .

This hand painted artistic pillow has such lovely contrasting colors that Annyta’s “painting” seems so much more alive as we look at it as a whole.

And notice the lighting as it reflects off the changeant velvet of the camel-green top band. Annyta always uses this ultra-soft, ultra-long-lasting type of high-quality velvet. It’s also known as shot silk velvet. This material is Annyta Lolyta’s trademark, because it gives a rich and mysterious two-tone effect.

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta painted a landscape for us with this hand painted artistic pillow she titled “FAR HORIZON.” It is a Dutch tradition among artists to paint their landscape. As a people they are very attached to their land, which is understandable, because with their canal system they literally created this land from what used to be the bottom of the North Sea and its surrounding marshlands. But Annyta’s artistry is not simply the hand painted horizon on this ultra-soft and luxurious fabric, she also accentuates her skill by choosing complementary and contrasting color combinations that give this hand painted artistic pillow another dimension of beauty. The Camel-green top band blends with the brown landscape, while the powerful red velvet underground brings our attention to all that is above.

Imagine having FAR HORIZON in your home or office. Buying this pillow will take you places, we promise.

NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or substitute another type of fill, please contact us.
Note #2: Velvet Matters products become more alive and beautiful with age. But please protect them. Even though we use the highest high quality changeant or shot-silk velvet, prolonged exposure to bright sunlight might cause some fading or discolouring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colours might look just a little different in reality. But don’t worry, unlike dating sites, our velvet cushions are always even more beautiful in real life – it’s just that maybe, once in a while, they might look a little different from the web photos.
