The color is coral, and they are a soft coral, so I guess you could call this Coral Coral!

Technically, it's a Gorgonian, and it's a huge colony of individual creatures. The form is something like a flattened branch, so they are called Sea Fans or Sea Whips. Gorgonians are often very brightly colored in shades of yellow, red or purple. Their regular home is in tropical or sub-tropical saltwater. Certain ones can be maintained in reef aquariums; perhaps you've seen them there. They can grow to many feet in height while remaining pretty much flatish.

This listing is for one pillow. The soft coral image covers a 20"x20"x5" pillow, using nontoxic, durable textile paint that has been heat-set for permanence. The all-weather qualities of the fabric make them perfect for your patio, deck, sailboat, outdoor room, chair, sofa, or tossed onto the bed in the master suite.

Also available in teal blue elsewhere in this shop. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by the artist on an island in Washington State that is anything but tropical! Enjoy!

PLEAE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
