Great Neck, NY — Hand-painted decorative pillows designed by New York City-based designer Lynn Chase are the newest offerings debuting for upscale decorative pillow manufacturer Il Fiore.
Earlier this summer, Il Fiore forged a licensing partnership with Chase under which artists at Il Fiore will hand-paint up to eight of Chase's well-known and boldly-colored "Jaguar Jungle" designs with acrylic paints onto black silk pillows for its introduction of the collection at the upcoming High Point market. The collection will be embellished chenille looped rouch and velveteen fabric.
More designs will be added and introduced at the New York Home Textiles Show in April, said Lori Blum, president of Il Fiore. "We hope that by April we'll have a total of four designs to offer," Blum added, "including her 'Parrots of Paradise' designs."
The "Jaguar Jungle" pillows are set to retail between $250 to $600 and target fine linen and upscale specialty stores.
