Inspired and informed by the legendary interior designer's work on the Miller House, for which Girard produced a number of famous embroidered works, the Vitra Home Sweet Home Embroidered Pillow is a luxuriously comfortable cushion that works just as well as a piece of decorative art. Impactful and full of history, the Vitra Home Sweet Home Embroidered Pillow is a subtle statement piece that will breathe a sense of life into any home space.
Designer Alexander Girard was born to an American mother and an Italian father in 1907 in New York City. Along with his close friends and contemporaries George Nelson and Charles & Ray Eames, Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American modern design.
Textile design was the main focus of his wide-ranging design career which also encompassed architecture, interior design, furniture design and industrial design. Perhaps his most iconic designs are his collection of hand-painted Wooden Dolls with are now produced under licence by Vitra.
