Animal-Shaped Pillows

These Plush Pillows Were Hand-Painted by the Artist Who Created Them

— August 3, 2016 — Art & Design
These plush pillows work as home decor to create a woodland-inspired theme that makes living rooms and bedrooms more interesting.

The plush pillows are created by Frencesca Mosmea who designs pillows in the shape of cats, kittens, dogs, porcupines, fawns and bunnies. Each of these pillows are hand-painted by the artist and while they only come in black and white, the illustrations almost appear lifelike due to the artist's skill. The plush pillows are sold on the artist's Etsy page, where the artist also offers to create custom pillows that are inspired by pictures of pets.

Animal lovers who also enjoy art related to animals will likely find use for these pillows that take after animal shapes.
Trend Themes
1. Hand-painted Plush Pillows - The hand-painted animal-shaped plush pillows can be made to look almost lifelike and are sold on Etsy, suggesting an opportunity for artists and designers to create unique pieces that bridge the gap between home decor and art.
2. Custom-shaped Pillows Based on Photos - The offer to create custom pillows based on photos of pets suggests an opportunity for designers and manufacturers to offer personalized products, tapping into the trend of consumers seeking one-of-a-kind home decor pieces.
3. Woodland-inspired Home Decor - The use of animal shapes in home decor could be a trend to watch for designers and manufacturers looking to create nature-inspired products that offer a unique twist to traditional home decor.
Industry Implications
1. Home Decor - Animal-shaped pillows can be included in the range of products under the home decor industry, which could be leveraged further by companies that focus on sustainable and eco-friendly materials to cater to environmentally conscious consumers.
2. Art and Design - The unique combination of design skills and artistic talent required to create these animal-shaped plush pillows could inspire fine artists to experiment with creating more unconventional art pieces like functional home decor products.
3. Pet Products - The opportunity to create custom pillows based on photos of pets suggests that the pet product industry could benefit from expanding its range of offerings beyond just toys and treats to include more personalized products for pet owners.
