All Punched Up

"My black-and-white pillow blend was due for a fun refresh, and a classic slipcovered sofa is a great blank canvas. I went in the opposite direction with pumped-up colors inspired by nature. The greens and yellows are like a citrusy cocktail in pillow form — instant happiness!" Kate Doherty, Market Director
