Cheeky Monkey Home - Studio + Shop

Hello and thank you for visiting Cheeky Monkey Home!

Cheeky Monkey Home makes unique wool felt applique pillows designed and handcrafted in our studio in Belmont, Massachusetts. Our purpose is to create the most unique and joyful pillows for your living space using vivid colors, fresh designs and excellent craftsmanship. We are committed to using the highest quality materials to create products that are beautiful, durable and timeless.

Most all of our products are made to order in our studio. In addition to our online shop, we hope you will visit us at our Studio + Shop at 68 Leonard Street in Belmont Center, MA.

MATERIALS + TECHNIQUE
At Cheeky Monkey Home, we design, hand-cut and stitch every pillow in our studio to our high standards for quality and beauty. We have perfected a richly layered applique technique using 100% wool felt in radiant color combinations set against 100% cotton or linen base fabrics. Our pillows come with a down/feather insert, and every piece is finished with decorative topstitching details, a hidden zipper and custom trimmings.

Our collection of fresh and inspired designs is growing and changing all the time, reflecting the discoveries we make in the creative process. We do not mass-produce or carry huge inventory, preferring the flexibility to respond to spontaneous inspiration, customer interests and exciting new materials.

OUR STORY
After a career in museum administration, owner Holly Johnson was drawn back into the studio when her first son was born to pursue her artistic passions. As a new mother, she found a gap in the marketplace for unique children’s décor and began painting murals and sewing pillows for young families and kids around Boston.

An old set of floor cushions that her toddler boys played with every day sparked the idea for Cheeky Monkey Home. Seeing how intrinsic (and threadbare) these cushions became in fort-building and jumping games, she was inspired to reinvent them in durable fabric and exciting designs.

Soon thereafter, she discovered the amazing qualities of wool felt (durable, fade resistant, eco-friendly and gorgeous) and knew this was the perfect material for her pillows and floor cushions. Imagining the warmth, color and beauty her pillows could bring to every home, Holly launched Cheeky Monkey Home in 2012.

I hope that you enjoy our products as much as I do, and keep coming back to see our newest designs!

Thank you for visiting us at Cheeky Monkey Home!
Holly Johnson, Designer
