Portland, Maine-based designers Wary Meyers (the husband/wife design team of Linda and John Meyers) recently introduced a series called "Off the Wall and Onto the Sofa," a new take on decorative art. The cotton canvas pillows, sewn by Linda and hand-painted with pliable acrylic paint by John, are based on works of Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollack, and Franz Kline. Each goose-down-and-feather-filled pillow measures 18 inches square and is backed in corduroy or velvet; $145 each. Go to Wary Meyers to see the range.
