Mignonne now has the most amazing pillows in store ... for some time now, Johnelle has been collecting vintage textiles during her travels and scouting ventures ... and now we have partnered with a great artisan to transform these textiles into beautifully designed pillows and cushions for your home.
These are well-crafted, handmade accessories for any room ... they are functional, too! They've been designed with zippers to remove and clean the covers, the pillow interiors are down.
Definitely worth checking out the next time you stop in!

Mignonne is continuing our chair design partnership with textile artist Gina Perincini of Flock. In addition to our line of custom dining chairs, customer can now select occasional chairs for purchase ... or bring in one for custom design treatment.
Here's an example of what you can select. This vintage Federal armchair, circa 1940s has been covered with flax colored linen featuring an avocado green hand-screened fern print. Notice the quality details such as crosshatched offsetting fabric utilized on the cushion piping chair back.
So here we have an eco-friendly option (one less item in the landfill!), repurposed by local artisans (yay!), uniquely beautiful (won't be seeing the same furnishings at your friend's house) and waiting to find a home!
If you have a tired old chair you've been thinking of dumping ... give us a call and we'll help you transform it into something affordably amazing!
