Hand Painted Cushion
€ 155

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolytais often inspired by nature as she creates her HAND PAINTED CUSHIONS, and with ZIRCON she pays tribute to the mineral world.

ZIRCON is a gemstone of many colors, has an ancient history of use, and some are even “radioactive.” Annyta’s “Zircon” features her HAND-PAINTED ARTISTRY highlighted by a horizontal band of orange-black and another of brown-gold.

But it is the hand-painted design that draws Annyta’s fans to her work: swirls and shapes that attract the eye and the mind at the same time. Could it be a snake? Or a rope? Or a river? The hand-painted shapes seem to move themselves as the light reflects off of them.

As a decorating option, Zircon’s sister cushion is called PREHNITE, named after a crystal of powerful healing potential. Or take a look at Annyta’s other handmade, hand-painted and/or hand-printed velvet cushions HERE.

Featuring Annyta Lolyta’s trademark of four horizontal bands, the hand painted cushion “ZIRCON” has two hand-painted designs of enticing swirls and curves. ZIRCON shows us yet again why Annyta Lolyta has gained such an audience over the years with her artistry in velvet.

Consider also buying ZIRCON’s sister cushion PREHNITE, featuring a similar four-band/hand-painted pattern. Both would make beautiful “bookends” on any couch or sofa. Or even as a means of tying in two unmatched pieces of furniture in your home or office.

All of Annyta Lolyta’s work is with changeant or shot silk velvet, which gives off a two-tone effect in the light. The look and feel of each color is further intensified by this two-tone effect. That attribute further highlights Annyta’s artistry of color combinations, in this case four distinct bands within one handmade pillow design.

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.
