Some companies just do it right, strait out of the gate. One such company is Lacefield Designs, out of Smyrna Georgia. They create beautiful striking pillows from solid linen and preppy printed cottons and trim them in fresh tapes and interesting treatments. Sometimes you want to be able to buy something "off the rack", for the perfect fit of convenience, color match and great design. Since 1985, Beth Lacefield, who began selling Christmas ornaments has grown her business substantially. At her first NY Gift Show, I discovered how great her American-made pillow designs are, and as you will see, there is something to match any color story. Enjoy!

Color stories are arranged around collections, and their website makes searching by color, style and size easy. From shades of turquoise

To hot pink with a touch of chocolate brown...

To varied indigo's...

the very now color combination of kelly green and navy...

The coolness of sea blue and natural...

to sharp gray and green.
