ANNYTA gathered all of her BLUE VELVET CUSHIONS on this page HERE.
Artists inpire artists and such is the case with Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta’s hand painted pillow “Odilon.” With the same dreamy quality of the 19th Century French painter/print-maker Odilon Redon, the colors of Annyta Lolyta’s “Odilon” seemingly float off the velvet cushion into your home or office. Her skill with subtle, hand painted colors in velvet make her hand painted pillows so appealing and so original.
The material Annyta uses is “changeant” or shot silk velvet. It is known for its softness and durability, but it also gives off a two-tone effect, so the look and feel of each color is further intensified by this wonderful lighting effect playing within the pillow. Through a process that she developed as an artist, her artistry in color is highlighted by the beautiful two-color effect of this luxurious material as it reflects light.
All Velvet Matters products are handmade in the Netherlands by Annyta. Since 1995, she has been making exclusive, hand-printed scarves and other fashion accessories. The Velvet Matters webshop now brings Annyta’s specialized velvet accessories to the world.
Annyta’s speciality is printing/stamping/painting/embossing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England two decades ago, and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of colour and form. Looking at the world around her with an eye for detail, Annyta is inspired by nature, art and everyday life. These make excellent gifts to yourself or those you love.

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.
