Handmade Velvet Cushion – Mare




Handmade Velvet Cushion
€ 115


Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta

created this handmade velvet cushion to evoke the sea in your home or office. MARE SHINES with bands of beautiful blue-red, deep night blue and grey-gold changeant or shot silk velvet.

Annyta aptly named it “Mare,” which is Italian for “Sea,” because the color combinations reflect the different shades of the sea. Being Dutch, Annyta instinctively resonates with the terrible and dangerous beauty of what for her people had always been the basis of their economic life-blood– the Sea.

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 colors to contrast and blend with the others. Her artistry in color is highlighted by the beautiful two-color effect of this luxurious material as it reflects light.

Take a look at the similarly beautiful, but pleasingly simple three-tier designs of ZEN BEAUTY, NIGHT SKY, GREEN HORNET, MR. SOPHISTICATED, and OLEA.

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.
