Here's a little flashback to a time when pillow fringe was a must. (Actually, like chintz and tassels in small doses, trim seems to be coming back.) In this case, I think multi-colored loop fringe really compliments the pillow fabric -- does anyone recognize the print? I love it. It's like a stylized version of an 18th-century scenic textile. At first glance, the print is vaguely similar to John Robshaw's "Pichhwai," below.
To put the first pillows in context, below is the circa late-1980s-early-'90s living room for which they were chosen. It's Frances Schultz's place, designed by her friend John Oetgen. These photos were taken by Langdon Clay,
