Yes! You did spot this fabric on the wing chairs in that fabulous mansion in Easthampton on the pilot episode of "Revenge".

The eclectic arrangement of penmanship styles mixed with typeset lettering on this lovely fabric lends an air of history, even a touch of elegance, to any place, wherever that place may be.

Business mastheads, menu items, addresses, wine labels, notary seals, product tags, map legends, name places, calendar dates, receipts, hotel registers, titles of musical compositions, and of course beautifully penned personal signatures have all found their way onto this pure cotton fabric, embellished with dark brown figures on natural/ecru.

Could Madame and Monsieur Brossette have imagined their names would appear on throw pillows over a century after than unforgettable weekend in Paris? Perhaps news of their legendary adventures spread as far as our continent, for much later was not Bogey heard to say to Bacall, “We’ll always have Paris”?

Each pillow measures 17 inches square and about 6 inches thick, stuffed with polyester fiberfill in removable casing. There is a three-quarter inch wide flange stitched around the perimeter as well as an envelope closure on the reverse, with coordinating solid linen fabric on the back. This pure cotton upholstery-weight fabric is sturdy and cleanable, so no need to feel reticent about having these beautiful pillows around kids, pets, and house guests. Spot cleanable, cold water washable (air dry flat), or dry cleanable. If perchance it goes through the wash with the towels, expect it to shrink about three or four percent.

Each pillow is different from the others as to the placement of the pattern. When ordering multiple pillows, they will vary a bit. If you would like to specify matching placement, just convo the artist.

Alas, the everyday detritus of our modern society is unlikely to produce anything approaching this level of visual intrigue; but then, neither did these bits in their day. Let’s check back a hundred years hence and see what we consider interesting. In the meantime, these will bring a touch of romance to your dwelling. Jouissez!
