San Francisco -- Peking Handicraft Inc. has created an expanded collection of embroidered decorative pillows with artist D.L. Rhein, and is launching them this fall.
Comprised of four different designs, the new offerings includes the new Marseilles, Amalfi, Damask, and Nautical Knot styles as well as an expansion of Rhein's Greek Key series.
Marseilles is inspired by its French city namesake. A linen pillow, it depicts a modern interpretation of a retro-inspired pattern with a multi-dimensional appearance that is complemented by the rich use of varying color hues and bright accent colors on a white background. It is available in three colorways -- purple, green and blue.
Amalfi, also made of linen, shows a distinctive motif that nods to Bollywood with moving lines and embellishments. Each design element here is showcased in a single bold color atop a soft white background. There are four colorways -- navy, chocolate, silver and slate.
Damask boasts an old Victorian-inspired decoration. This velvet pillow uses imagery reminiscent of a classic lace pattern, and the embroidered detail is done in a neutral color against a bold background. Damask comes in blue, gray and metallic.
Nautical Knot mimics the look of intertwined ropes, as its name suggests. Made of velvet, it features four rows of rope-like designs cascading across its canvas. It comes in blue, gray and silver.
The Marseilles, Amalfi, and Nautical Knot down-filled pillows measure 20-by-20 and are set to retail between $120 and $150 each; the Damask down-filled pillows measure 14-by-20 and are priced at $120 each.
In addition, Rhein's Greek Key series has expanded to include a new silver linen pillow, plus its first two velvet pillows, available in blue and gray. The latest Greek Key designs are down-filled, measure 20-by-20 and retail for $120 each.
