Needlepoint Pillows in the White House and Buckingham Palace

If you've read the NeedlepointPillows.com About page, then you know I'm proud of the fact that our throw pillows are in places such as Buckingham Palace and the White House.

You'll also be aware that they're in my house too and in my friends' and neighbors' houses. And as I say on the site: frankly that's even better! That's because I don't get invited much to BP or even the White House, so I can't enjoy seeing the decorative pillows in person.

What I do enjoy, though, whether in my own home or those of people I visit, is seeing how creatively the cushions are used as decorating devices. Some (like the one shown here from our Garden Series of Embroidered Throw Pillows), are very much integral to the display piece of furniture; while others may simply be placed as one of many in a design of color or pattern. Whether you're showcasing high-end reproductions or restored originals, never underestimate the power of a well-placed needlepoint pillow.
