new pillows from erin flett

by Amy Azzarito

This is a little embarrassing to admit, but around this time every year, I start checking the times for the sunrise and sunset. (OK, I’ll be honest — I pretty much start checking right after the Winter Solstice.) When the dark days get me down, there’s something comforting about watching it get lighter for one minute every day. (By January 31, the sunset in Brooklyn will be at 5:11 pm — yay!) So it’s no surprise that I fell in love with Erin Flett’s brightly colored pillows. Erin and her husband hand screen each design onto USA woven natural cotton-bark cloth in their small Maine studio. Until the days get long enough for me to really soak up some sun, I’ll have to spring for a big, bright orange pillow. — Amy Azzarito
