{friday finds: kilim pillows & wait ’til wednesday’s sale}

This started out as a posting on kilim pillows…until I spoke with Kathy at Hirshfield’s Design Resource (formerly known as Hirshfield’s Design Studio). Design Resource is having a sale starting next Wednesday, December 16, 2009! Everything that is not nailed to the floor is 40% off retail, excluding the jewelry. Plus, they do have a number of items already priced to sell.

Antique kilim rugs repurposed into kilim pillows.

Now, on to the beautiful kilim pillows. These pillows are made out of antique kilim rugs which are worn out, full of holes, and can no longer be used as a rug. A nice black velvet is used as the backing on these one-of-a-kind repurposed pillows. Pillows, furniture, clothing, anything repurposed holds a special place in my heart. I would love to own a kilim rug, but right now I might settle for a pillow, which will be on sale Wednesday.

Not quite certain what kilim means? Kilim, a word of Turkish origin, denotes a pileless textile of many uses produced by one of several flatweaving techniques that have a common or closely related heritage and are practiced in the geographical area that includes parts of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China.

Stop by Hirshfield’s Design Resource and check out the beautiful pillows and the 40% off retail sale on Wednesday – Friday, December 16-18, 2009.

    I made a change in the blog posting. I thought the sale was just Wednesday, December 16, 2009; it is Wednesday – Friday (Dec. 16-18, 2009) Sorry for the mistake.
