Inktspot black-and-white pillow


Hand-printed Pillow
€ 175

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta is a genuine artist, which means that after she accepted her rather odd outlook on life, she gave herself the freedom to create art based upon it — like this hand-painted pillow — inspired by an INK SPOT ON HER WORKING TABLE.

Notice how she has interwoven the design using the different shades of dark and light. Annyta has also worked with dark shades these other BLACK & WHITE SERIES CUSHIONS: Black & White I and Black & White II.

Annyta’s subtle use of shading in these darker compositions becomes even more pronounced because of the material that she uses. Made with changeant or shot silk velvet, this extremely soft material gives a two-tone effect so that the contrasting colors interact and intermingle in the light to give a depth to any setting.

Through a process that she developed as an artist, Annyta uses the two-tone effect of the changeant velvet to allow different shades of the same colors to contrast and blend with the others. The beautiful two-color effect of this luxurious material reflects the light of the darker shades.

Ink-ME is a hand-painted pillow that is reminiscent of a Geschalt painting. Dutch designer Annyta Lolyta was inspired to create this work of art after staring at an ink spot. This gorgeous hand-painted pillow is mesmerizing with its different shades of black and grey that highlight her abstract design. Annyta created similar sensations in her BLACK & WHITE SERIES: Black & White I and Black & White II.

Made of changeant or shot silk velvet, this two-tone material changes in the light. Each hand-painted cushion in Velvet Matters is a unique expression of Annyta’s artistry with color, form and fabric.

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.
