Scalamandre textiles are often featured in the leading interior design projects and magazines, offering an array of choices for the most discriminating consumer.
I just finished these 24” pillows with 100% down inserts for an awesome antique dealer in town. They have a gold colored solid silk velvet on the back and for the cording.
You can see the backs are gold silk velvet with zippers at the bottom.
Since I don’t have pictures of them in their new home let’s look at some images of similar pillows.
I am crazy about Mary McDonald and her glamorous and sophisticated style. She uses a velvet leopard for pillows on her needlepoint settee in the foyer, which is decorated for Christmas in the photo below.

The room below was decorated by Palmer Weiss. In an article by Donna Sapolin at Decorati she said, “ I make almost everyone spend more than $500 on a pillow at some point. That cost stems from the fabric; I always inject a high-end animal print into my designs-one that probably costs between $750 and $1000 a yard. We might just use a yard on a single pillow or even on just one side of a pillow.” There’s the Scalamandre Leopard pillow on the sofa.

Here they are shown in a chic little sitting room at the 2009 DIFFA Dining By Design event. Susan Lawton placed them on a settee, look how handsome they are !
