Pillow Talk


James Andrew at David Duncan Antiques - photo by Lars Stephan

Cushions help to evoke a sense of luxurious comfort and can really add visual impact. One of my favorite places to go for cushions is the super chic David Duncan Antiques – For over twenty years he has been featuring a superb selection of cushions made from the most fantastic vintage and antique textiles, woven silk Lampas, Flemish tapestry, and fabulous vintage Fortuny. Duncan’s passion for fine fabrics really comes through in these unique pieces, and many are complemented with antique tasseled fringes and tapes – absolutely divine! You will always see at least a few David Duncan cushions in every James Andrew interior.
