It was pillow talk all the way, baby.
Quietly whispering into my ear the words “custom,” “made in New York City,” “Italian linen,” “day-long stitching process,” and “couture cushions,” Michael Arguello, friend, colleague and the interior designer/founder of Michael Arguello Design, directed me through his newly-launched Arguello Casa Architectural Pillow Collection Tuesday night.
His comfortable art form, debuting alongside his signature candle scent wafting among the fashionable furnishings at The Red Threads, a sweet home shop nestled among the coolness of New York’s Nolita neighborhood, resulted in classic, modern, swoon-worthy home accoutrements.
Michael, ever influenced by the archetypal skyline of New York City, set forth a colorful, sophisticated collection hand made here, inspired by Mid Century Modern designs and updated with a tweaked color palette. He says he “wanted to make art using a practical, familiar and comfortable art form.”
And that he did.
