We prefer our cushions comfortable. Let the family and the guests command attention not the pillow covers. We like subtle shades and soft cottons. The more subtle, the more we feel at ease and we hope you do too. The secret to the muffled shade of blue in these broad stripes is not the dye color we chose but the clever intermixing of the creamy colored yarn from the warp. The result is bold but not loud. Strong but not overpowering.
