Cuttlefish Dec Pillows by Kevin O’Brien Studio – Printed Linen Dec Pillows

June 9th, 2011

The cuttlefish is an interesting creature.  It is actually not a fish, but a mollusca (invertebrate animal).  They are known as the chameleon of the sea because they have the ability to change color and skin texture which allows them to blend in with their surroundings and hunt their prey. We’re also told that it comes in handy when courting that special female cuttlefish. Flash a lady some incredible colors and she won’t be able to resist that cuttlefish charm!

The Cuttlefish screen-printed decorative pillow on 100% linen by Kevin O’Brien is available in six irresistible colors:  Aquarium, Coral Sand, Indigo, Sea Glass, South Pacific, and Yellow. Each pillow has a zipper closure and a feather/down insert.

Ship in a Bottle Dec Pillows by Kevin O’Brien Studio – Printed Linen Nautical Dec Pillows

June 8th, 2011

Ships in a bottle have always fascinated people as they try to comprehend how it is possible to put such an object into the tiny opening of a bottle. Model ships date back 4,000 years to ancient Egyptian times, but the art of creating a miniature ship inside a bottle had its beginnings around 1850.  It’s a hobby that requires considerable patience and knowledge about the historical details of the great ships that once sailed our seas.

Widows Walk Dec Pillows by Kevin O’Brien Studio – Printed Linen Dec Pillows

June 8th, 2011

Found on many 19th century coastal houses, the Widow’s Walk is a gated rooftop platform with a romantic myth attached to create some mystique. It was here that  the dedicated mariner’s wife would perform her daily watch for vessels at sea longing for the return of her beloved husband who was away for months or even years at a time.  Would this be the day that he returns? Sadly, many of these wives became widows when the powerful arms of a turbulent sea seized the soul of many a sailor, forbidding their return home.

Widows Walk by Kevin O’Brien Studio is a hand screen-printed decorative pillow on 100% linen and is offered in a variety of colors. These pillows fit in well with both casual and formal surroundings. All pillows come with zipper closure and a feather-down insert.
