Warning: there will be a few of these posts in the coming weeks! Summer product has hit stores and, I must admit, it’s a season of product that I truly loved designing. I have so much to share with you so let’s start with the Medersa Pillows.
Inspired by our design director’s trip to Bordrum, Turkey, each pillow features hand-drawn traditional susani motifs that are layered and cropped. Perhaps it’s because I’m Greek, but something about that trip inspiration really spoke to me! Picturing crisp cobalt and white boats cutting through the turqoise waters, I drew each motif on these pillows by hand, then used Photoshop to complete the layouts for each side.
Set against a pure white canvas base, I love the way the jewel-tone colors pop. Like these other pillows I did, they feature crewelwork embroidery and are completely reversible. This time around though, I tried to keep the backs a bit more modern and graphic, while letting the fronts be an ethnic punch for any decor.
