I remember when I started Design*Sponge, someone asked me an odd question during an interview. They said, “If you had to choose between being a pillow or a chair, which would you be?” I wondered why they chose those two objects, but I ultimately settled on the chair because, well, I’d rather be something sturdy and functional than soft and fluffy. That exchange came to mind when I was looking at these pillows by Kevin O’Brien at ABC Home. I couldn’t decide which one I loved the most and found myself thinking, “Hmm . . . I’d totally switch if I could be one of these pillows.” Then I realized how crazy that sounded and forced myself close the laptop and go outside for a bit.
Kevin’s pillows embrace a trifecta of my favorite trends: ombre, teal green and velvet. He even manages to combine all three in the pillows above. If these don’t make you want to throw away (or swap out) your current pillows for new ones, I don’t know what will. I know I might be tempted to make the trek into the city tomorrow to see these in person, or at least rub my face against the green velvet one. That sucker is gorgeous.
