It is a gift for someone who is retiring. It was expensive for a pillow, but it certainly says a lot about the city of Pittsburgh!
The pillow is used as a decorative piece on a black sofa and it really looks nice as it adds some color and interesting design. The colors are not nearly as bright as was shown in the picture, something that was a bit disappointing. However, the colors ended up working really well in this room so it was okay.

The pillow is a great keepsake of our home town. It's unique, colorful and has all the major features of home.
Very well made attractive pillow. It is advertised as hand made and while high quality appears the same as a mass produced machine made pillow. It might be better to have them machine produced and reduce the price a bit.
These pillows are so much fun! They all have unique things about them and they're just fun to look at. My one complaint is that they're pretty pricey- especially for being made in India. I wish they were made in the US....
I got the Paris cushion, to remind us of where we met

Purchased as a closing gift for a client from Chicago buying a second home in Florida. They loved its unique nature and the familiarity of places from their hometown. Appears to be high quality and exactly as portrayed on the website.

Adds perfect color to my black couch. Reminds me of my time living in that great city! Highly recommend.

Either as a sofa throw-pillow or as a wall/shelf display piece, it readily invites attention due to bright colors and imaginative design. Most of Manhattan places of interest are depicted - so for a visitor or resident of New York City, the pillow serves as memorabilia in a grand way.

It's great in a chair or sofa, it's also comfortable. It's so nice I wouldn't use it for everyday pillows as you don't want to snag the embroidery.
