I had never seen (or really noticed) floor pillows until I started Maven. Once my in-country partner sent me that first collection I FELL IN LOVE! Our rug guys take vintage rugs and cut them up to make these lovely floor cushions. We are digging their latest collection, shop HERE!
Sometimes it’s hard to pick a bold pattern for a couch or chair in your living room and that’s where these beauties come into play! They can add so much texture and color to a room. I like to think of them as the chic version of a bean bag chair. Throw pillows, floor pillows, and poufs are such a great way to transform a room and keep transforming it year after year by simply swapping them out as our moods or seasons change:) Check out these beauties below!
You’ve seen reproductions of Beni Ourains’ in current decor stores and in design magazines – but there is nothing like the real deal. Hand woven in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco by the Beni Ourain tribe, with pile of off-white and black natural wool. They are typically woven with simple harlequin patterns and tribal graphics. They style will in both Contemporary, Modern or Mid-Century style spaces. We are true believers they are a staple piece for every home!
A few weeks back, we did a photo shoot at a local event space, Salvage One. It is an old industrial loft (3 levels!) with vintage furniture scattered throughout. Oh my goodness, we were in heaven! Had to share a few of our favorite shots of our products staged within.
We just started selling Azilal Rugs from the Moroccan Souks and I have become obsessed with these beauties! They are made by tribes of the Azilal province in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. They range from diamond, symmetrical patterns to free form abstracts and are all one of a kind pieces! Most vintage pieces date from the 1960s-1980s. They are made out of single tied wool with natural dye. I think they add the perfect touch to any room! Have a look below:)
We love them!!!! Low floors seating is making a come back! Over the past year or so, I have seen floor pillows and poufs become so popular in the design world. I personally love the idea of having a huge colorful cushion to sit on the floor with, what could be better!

I recently went to Santa Fe for the International Folk Art Market. Ironically, I have only attended art markets outside of the States. This was my first one to attend that was less than a 4 hours plane ride to get to! I had a wonderful time and got to see work from over 40 other countries. I came home with a ton of new artisan contacts and even better… a few killer artisan finds!
I was not on the look out for baskets but when I saw them, I knew they where a must have! These were handmade in India but have a Navajo influence which I am loooving! As promised, I wanted to provide you with a few ways to style these lovelies in your home!
