Embroidered Pillow, Double Heart

Alexander Girard, 1952

Girard attracted special 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 in the living room, with built-in sofas covered in fabrics by Girard and decorated with embroidered pillows made specifically for this setting.

Pleasantly firm and elaborately stitched, the Embroidered Pillows feature attractive motifs that have been chosen by Vitra in cooperation with the Girard family from the vast store of  extiles and images created by the designer.

Filling: duck half down

Cover fabric: Twill, embroidered
