I Never Promised You A Horizon
Striped Silk Velvet Pillow

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta gives us a twist, an unexpected perception, in her striped silk velvet pillow “I Never Promised You A Horizon.” You might have expected another horizontally-lined pillow like the companion to this one, “Lost Horizon.” But not so.
BOTH of these “Horizons” on your couch will give an artistic, evocative statement that only handmade, hand-designed artwork from Annyta can offer. It just fits, but not in the way you expect — just like the artist herself.

Inspired by a Belgian sculpture of the same name, this striped silk velvet pillow also evokes the muted, but beautiful colors of the flat Dutch landscape.  What is it about Annyta’s use of color and design that makes these silk pillows so special? Perhaps it’s her more than three decades as an artist that makes her products seem so natural, so “I want this in my home.”

Annyta’s artistry with velvet and color allows her to bring such subtlety into her hand-printed cushion designs.

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.
