DIODOTUS the “hand-painted velvet cushion” will certainly outshine DIODOTUS “THE MAGNIFICENT,” who historically was a Selucid king, reigning for a scant two years in post-Alexandrian Persia. Like most of these foreign Persian kings, Diodotus had to betray and murder someone who trusted him [the child of a former Persian king] to take the throne. But he was dethroned in 138 BCE, and then he killed himself.

Does this sound like an inspiring symbol for a handmade velvet cushion for your home or office?

Well, Annyta Lolyta is simply saying that you can find beauty anywhere. And DIODOTUS THE CUSHION is certainly beautiful. Look at the center, hand-printed panel, whose shapes and colors would go beautifully with the other handmade velvet cushions in Annyta’s PERSIAN RULER SERIES: Ardashire, Cyrus the Great, Darius the Great, Xerxes the Great, “wild-ass Vahahran,” Artaxerxes, Cambyses, Sogdianus, Antiochus III, and Peroz. Look at the hand-painted Prussian blue panel to the left. It’s quality and beauty all in one. And it’s a one-of-a-kind, original work of art. Annyta only made one of these, and this is it. If you like it, then buy it. There’s only one DIODOTUS.

DIODOTUS is another in Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta’s PERSIAN RULER SERIES. This hand-painted velvet cushion is a work of art, which she named after the Persian ruler who called himself “THE MAGNIFICENT,” even though he had to murder a child ere to the throne in 138 BCE to take the throne.

Well, what we do know about Diodotus is that his cushion is truly “MAGNIFICENT.” Actually, so are all of his ancestors in the PERSIAN RULER SERIES: Ardashire, Cyrus the Great, Darius the Great, Xerxes the Great, “wild-ass Vahahran,” Artaxerxes, Cambyses, Sogdianus, Antiochus III, and Peroz.

This is Annyta: colorful, creative, expressive and personal. This is Velvet Matters.

NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or you’d like to 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 discoloring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colors 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.
