Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta

was inspired by the view outside her atelier of the river Angstel when making this home accessory. Cushions are often what she uses as her artistic canvas.

Watch the film “How Annyta makes a cushion” to see how she made this one.

On a dark Dutch day [there are many such days in the Netherlands], Annyta noticed how the grass seemed so much greener compared to a sunny day. Her artistic sense came alive, and the result is a cushion with exploding greens plus an embossed band of changeant smokey grey velvet to depict the Angstel river.

Because Annyta has been expressing herself on velvet for the past two decades, she is able to transfer an emotion or insight into the velvet itself. That’s what’s so interesting about her film “How Annyta makes a cushion”.

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.
