Kevin O’Brien Studio Striped Ogee Velvet Dec Pillow

The Striped Ogee velvet decorative pillows by Kevin O’Brien Studio are not only beautiful and functional, they also create an illusion.  Ogee is an architectual term referring to a molding with an S-shaped profile or an arch with two opposite concave curves flowing into a convex curve, forming a point.

These Ogee luxurious throw pillows have diagonal stripes, which forms straight lines.  So why is it called Ogee?  The pillows are actually stripes within stripes and if you look closely you’ll see that the position of the stripe colors cleverly creates a gentle S curve.

The Striped Ogee are made with hand-painted silk and rayon velvet and are offered in a variety of colors.  All pillows come with zipper closure and a feather-down insert.

Kevin O’Brien Faces Decorative Pillow

Kevin O’Brien Studio introduces Faces, a striking new series of printed pillows.  Owning a Kevin O’Brien pillow is like having a piece of art work at your finger tips in a casual setting.  Created with a few brush stokes and limited color palate, the pillows portray a female subject in four different poses whereby the viewer is left to interpret the message or emotional feeling expressed in each.  It begs you to wonder what she is thinking?  Is she in love?  Who is she? It makes for a great conversation piece.

The Faces pillows are printed on 100% cotton and are offered in 4 patterns in two colorways:  Blue and Yellow.  The Faces pillow is 21″ x 21″ and all pillows come with zipper closure and a feather-down insert.
