Pillows by Andrew YES

pillows by andrew yes pillow collection
Last year, the artist and designer Andrew YES had the distinction of being named the honorary designer for the BOFFO Show House 2012. BOFFO’s founders chose him because of his playful and vibrant design aesthetic. And he did not disappoint.

This winter, Andrew YES  released a collection of specialty pillows that have made for more than just a unique holiday gift—they are also décor staples for any living space.  The centerpiece of the collection is YES’ signature pillow ball, which he created to “soften certain spaces and enhance others.” However, there are also traditional square pillows that come in a variety of patterns, including one with triangular patchworks “to give the illusion of pyramids.”

These festive pillows come in a wide variety of colors and styles and are covered with materials as varied as YES’ own “vegan leather” and selected antique tapestries. Each pillow his filled with kapok, which is a natural fiber made of seed pods from the Kapok tree that is also used in life preservers. The kapok fiber keeps the pillows light, buoyant and supportive, which makes the pillows an ideal fit in any living space.

“The magic of these pillows is that they are universal and extremely comfortable,” YES says. “They modernize the antique and soften the ‘now.’ I’ve seen clients create a refuge in a Chesterfield sofa, punctuate a Minotti sectional and they look amazing as a symmetrical pair on a gilt settee. Kids also love to scatter them on the carpet and roll on top of them.” Definitely an added bonus for those friends with children.

Andrew YES may provide a unique aesthetic to interior design, but when the focus is on comfort, the unique will always become universal.
