A Comfortable Place

Home is more than just a place you rest your head. It's the whole collection of friends, places, textures and flavors that make up your experiences there. These embroidered pillows will keep those comfortable memories always close by. Designer Shelly Klein fills the amply-sized throw pillows with iconic images of three cities, stitching them with black cotton thread on natural flax fabric. They range from architecture--like Seattle's Space Needle and San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge--to the tiny details observed when living in a place--like the Greek paper coffee cup often spotted around New York. Each pillow has a hidden zipper underneath for cleaning. Handmade in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Mary and Shelly Klein's lovely handmade pillows are a great way to celebrate your favorite place. As New Yorkers, we're huge fans of the pillow sporting Lady Liberty, a yellow cab, and a friendly pigeon. What other cities would you like to see?

Very pricey, but handmade in the US of natural fabric. Great for those with a Metropolitan decor.

Way too much for one pillow

Too expensive!

I think the idea is great for urban decor. I love the natural materials and that the pillows are made in the USA. But $150 for one pillow seems excessive -- especially since these look great as a set.

Great idea, but FAR too expensive. Spending $150 on one tiny pillow, made in the US or not, is just wasteful.

Love it

Worth the price for a local (I'm from Michigan!) handmade product.

Love that it's made in Michigan! But that price isn't going to go over well.

PROPS FOR BEING MADE IN THE USA; HOWEVER, TOO TOO PRICY FOR JUST ONE PILLOW.

I would buy one of these in a second, if they were $50/each. I wouldn't even pay $100 for one pillow. No thanks.

Love the idea. Great way to celebrate where you live now or in the past. I would like to see St. Louis! I am not sure that I could justify buying one at $150 though.

way too overpriced

$125 for one pillow is crazy!

We're glad to see so much feedback for these handmade pillows! Each iconic shape is hand-embroidered on to the oversized throw pillows, which are then stuffed and sewn to create comfy reminders of your favorite cities.

Crazy price for a pillow, maybe ok for celebs! Also, just not my style, very silly looking.

Finally, something made in America. I would not buy this, but am glad to see that it is made in the United states!
