Bring the Elements of NYC Into Your Home (Sans the Grime) With These Printed Pillows

August 16, 2015

No need to reach for your hand sanitizer after handling these NYC artifacts. Ronda J. Smith’s “In the Seam” pillows are meant to spruce up lackluster spaces while celebrating all that makes New York New York. Pigeons, rats and all. Works of art in their own right, each image featured has been shot by Rhonda herself (she’s also a photographer specializing in food and still life), then printed on cotton sateen, hand stuffed, and sewn onto cotton-twill fabric in Brooklyn.

The bold images pop with color and offer up a raw and funky vibe that will please both New Yorkers and guests of the city who have fallen in love with the urbanscape. There are 140 pillows to choose from—NYC-centric and otherwise—including Coney Island’s Wonder Wheel, Mister Softee’s ice cream truck, manhole covers, the classic NYC coffee cup, a Metro Card, pigeons, squirrels and much more.

Want a few for your couch? You can purchase them here on Etsy for $35 and up. Some of our favorite designs from the bunch can be found below.
