A Midi - Mini Belgian Linen Pillow

  • About A Midi - Mini, the pattern Hand-drawn natural forms. Stained glass. The geometry of water.

    A modern take on an ebullient 1940’s pattern that emanated heritage American quilting patterns called “Arcadia.” A Midi was reimagined for the present using a two-inch square within Arcadia’s larger patchwork of patterns. We loved the shapes and the linework, and even in miniature it had a strong personality of its own.

    A Midi then emerged into three different scales – Mini (seen here); inverted and enlarged for ‘A Midi – Moyen’ (fabric only); and in an even more dramatic scale for ‘A Midi – Grand ‘(wallpaper only). The collection’s palette is designed to be united together as a strong unit, or to be paired with any of our other more elaborate multi-color patterns.

    About A Midi - Mini, the pillow All of the pillows in our Belgian Linen collection are made to order in Los Angeles, California. The fabrics are printed in small batches by hand by our partners at a family-owned facility on the finest (and softest) Belgian Linen, and your pillows will be cut and sewn to order just a mile down the road from there by another family-owned workshop. We've been working with both of these partners for over a decade because they're simply the best at what they do.

about A MIDI: the shapes of water.

"Arcadia", an electrifying patchwork pattern from our 1943 'Trend of the Times' collection, was a study in maximalism in its original iteration.

We took a small section of Arcadia's happy geometric cacophony and blew it up to give it an identity of its own. The birth of A Midiin three different scales meant that we could finally herald the soft, hand-drawn doodles properly.

A midi - 'noon' in French - is when the reflection of the sunlight in the water hits just right, and the ocean's surface appears to dance as the waves ebb and flow. Yeah...it's a mood.
