A warm and sunny September or October is sometimes called an Indian Summer. Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta used her inspiration of actually feeling warm one day in September in her atelier outside of Amsterdam to create this home interior accent called INDIAN SUMMER II.

Like the companion INDIAN SUMMER I, the colorful velvet band that you see on this handmade cushion showcases Annyta’s ability to literally “paint” on velvet. Annyta begins with a base piece of changeant velvet and then literally draws in the colors and designs that inspire her. The difference between the two INDIAN SUMMER cushions is that INDIAN SUMMER II is rectangular and INDIAN SUMMER I square. And they have a third friend: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. All of these cushions have the vibrant coloring that will just bring a smile to your face.

The advantage Annyta’s choice changeant velvet as for trademark material is that Steve two-tone lighting effects EVOKE DIFFERENT EMOTIONS. You might also consider pairing INDIAN SUMMER II with, of course, the horizontally-oriented INDIAN SUMMER I. Or, if you are attracted to Annyta’s colorful and vibrant “painting” on velvet, have a look BREAKING WAVES I, BREAKING WAVES II, LOOK AT ME!, REDON, ODILLON, TRIADE or MUSCAT, among others. Annyta’s ability to paint on velvet gives her home interior accents that extra touch of excellence.

A warm, sunny September or October day in Amsterdam is a cause for celebration. Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta was feeling that when she created this home interior accent called INDIAN SUMMER II. Amsterdam is often rainy and cold, but when the sun shines on the canals and unique architecture, it really becomes a magical city. The orange and yellow hand-painted design of INDIAN SUMMER II give that same kind of magical, “Is this really happening?” feeling.

Yes, it can be sunny and warm in Amsterdam, even in October. Like INDIAN SUMMER I, INDIAN SUMMER II gives that same feeling of a gift of the day. Notice again, though, as with all velvet matters products, Annyta combines the colors perfectly to accentuate her artistic expression in her hand-painted velvet band.

Annyta has expressed her inner artistic voice on any number of her home interior accents. Take a look at BREAKING WAVES I, BREAKING WAVES II, LOOK AT ME!, REDON, ODILLON, TRIADE or MUSCAT or just peruse the cushion homepage.

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.
