Had to have it!

When I saw this sitting on display at CB2, I just had to have it.


First spotted at Casa Sugar via Copy Cat Chic

At just $25, I like this just as much as the $135 Fornasetti pillows that inspired it.

And you know how Im a big fan of mixing high with low, right? We'll I just happen to have some real deal Fornasetti plates burning a hole in my proverbial pocket. I love them but I can't decide just where they should live. I can't wait to hang them!!

In other news, you may have noticed I installed a new commenting system on the blog. The upside is that I can respond to your comments directly and its easier to see the responses. The downside seems to be that its kind of slow. Would you mind testing driving it and letting me know if you think it a good trade off. Should I keep or scrap it? Im torn.

  2. What a great pillow! I like it.

    As requested, I'm trying out the posting system. I actually have never heard of disqus until you mentioned it. It reminds me of both "discuss" and "discus throw." So I'm throwing a comment your way to talk about pillows. Fabulous pillows. And in particular, one fabulous pillow. Where will you put it?

    p.s. Disqus does seem to be a little slow and it took a minute to figure out which ID to use to sign in (since I don't use the options given usually), but it is easier to read than the other system you used. Hope that helps. :)

    Trying out the new comments. I think I like this better, but it took a second for it to load.

    Love the pillow, by the way.

    Oh, and I'm just noticing that you're using DIsqus. I switched over to it a few days ago and I like it so far.

  6. I don't think I've ever heard such an original plea to get people to comment! Nice one. ;-)

  7. Seems a little bit cumbersome....?

    And I have to keep retyping my details in - they don't appear automatically.

    I might put it in the living room (that was my first thought) but if I paint the dresser blue I think I need to use that shade in the pillows too. So Im not sure. But I know it will make the rounds in the house :)

  15. I've been using Disqus for a while now and I like it. They've been growing a lot in the last few months and there were definitely some hiccups in the last few weeks. I finally put it on my work blog two weeks ago and the comment import took almost a day. When I installed it on my design blog, the comments were imported within about 5 minutes.

    I think that they're staying more on top of things now. I have really loved how easy it has been to reply directly to people via my phone and I think seeing threaded comments creates a little "community" within the comments on my blogs.

    Good luck with it! I hope it works out for you!

  16. I love it! I may have to get one for my house as would look cute in living room or bedroom. I like the new comment section.

    I would still love to know where you purchased your living room set. It is divine.

  19. What a great pillow! Can't wait to see it in action.

  20. I didn't realize it was a pillow, lol but rather a necklace you were interested in. lol duh me.

  21. Love your pillow... and testing out this commenting system. :)

  22. That is amazing! I love Fornasetti's work, but I can't usually afford it. It's amazing to see someone else channeling his style whose prices are a little more reasonable.

    Have you looked at any of Adler's books? He often showcases Fornasetti items, especially plates, and his books might be able to give you some ideas on where to display them. They show up quite a few times in his Happy Chic books : )

  23. As for Disqus, I found it to be rather easy. I almost always use Open ID, so I knew exactly what to do and it took me maybe 5 seconds to use : )

    I say keep it.

  24. We don't have any nice pillows around here (they've all become good building blocks for preschoolers...), but I am itching to get a 'real' living room (or at least part of one) back. Great find!

    ReplyDelete
  25. nice new system...and great find!

  26. Sure, it's a little slow, but as each commenter only has to load the page once (and then only if they want to comment . . . using a feed reader is the ONLY way to keep up with blogs, as you only load the whole page if you need to comment or follow an ad link), and you have to deal with ALL of the comments, I say keep it.

    The pillow is very cool! So, what's the verdict???

    I'm trying out the new commenting system as you asked, and I think it's a great replacement. It took a nanosecond longer to load but if I hadn't been specifically paying attention to the download time, I definitely wouldn't have noticed the change. My vote goes for keep! :-)
