The Chair Pillows sport a whimsical pattern that embraces the ornate look of classic backrests, hence its name. A playful way to add visual interest to sofas, armchairs and more, the cushions are especially perfect for feminine homes--or homes that require a woman's touch.

Designed by Marianne Van Ooij, a Dutch designer based in Brooklyn, New York, the Chair Pillows treats the cushion as a three dimensional object. As written on her website, "By relating the space inside with the outside canvas, the pillow itself disappears and becomes a different thing alltogether." Handprinted heavy ecru cotton, the Chair Pillows boast hypoallergenic polyester filling.

The Chair Pillows are available in three different styles and six colors including red, blue, grey, gold, silver and bronze. Stats for Backrest-Inspired Cushions Trending: Older & Chilly
