Shaken, not stirred. A few months ago a strange package showed up in our mail from Inhabit Living containing wild pillows, placemats and an odd frames fabric that was meant to hang on the wall. Hmmmm. Strangers to shameless promotion (not anymore!), we didn't know quite what to do at first, and although the fabric on the wall idea seemed college dorm-room,
we started gravitating towards the silky, soft, funky colored pillows. In fact, putting them in our house on a white couch with otherwise neutral decoration really began to wake up the room. We were learning a new trick.
Inhabit is a young company from Indianapolis that wants to spread color in your life. With large floor pillows as well as bolsters and......medium squares all made out of their signature designs (a cross between 60's hippy fashion and clean cut digital lifestyle a la Dwell) they are on a roll and looking to absolutely kill the pillow niche before moving on to bigger things. We like their pillows and think that when used sparingly within a neutral background (see center pic above) they really shine.
