Embroidered Pillows - Home Sweet Home, light grey
Alexander Girard, 1952
Alexander Girard attracted a great deal of attention with his interior design of the legendary Miller House, for which he personally selected each individual object. The centrepiece of the house was a so-called 'conversation pit', a sunken seating area outfitted with decorative pillows made specifically for this setting. The embroidered pillow 'Home Sweet Home' is pleasantly firm and elaborately stitched.
