Conversation Piece: Do-Not-Throw Pillows


Interior designer Muriel Brandolini’s glass-bead-covered cushions are more like fine art for your sofa than pillow-fight ammunition. Made from Holland & Sherry’s felt or silk-satin duchesse, stuffed with down, and individually hand-beaded by artisans in Vietnam, each pillow took roughly five days to embellish. As such, only two to six of each of the sixteen designs were produced as part of Brandolini’s collection of surrealist décor, now available at Barneys ($595 to $1,800; 660 Madison Ave., at 61st St.; 212-826-8900). In addition to perusing the line’s pricey side tables, lounge chairs, and runners (up to $4,995), fans can soon alight on “The World of Muriel Brandolini,” an auction of the designer’s own art and furniture at Phillips de Pury & Company (450 Park Ave., at 57th St.; 212-940-1268; on view October 8 to 21). And to complete the Muriel moment, a new coffee-table book of the same title will be released October 11 ($65; Rizzoli).
