Introducing Alexandra D. Foster Luxury Cushions

I've been keeping this news a secret for six months now, but its finally time to let the cat out of the bag. I left my job this past Christmas to follow my dream of one day owning my own company, as well as my passion for home interiors, and have just launched Alexandra D. Foster: a range of luxury cushions all entirely handmade in the beautiful town of Como, Italy. 

For you Destinations Perfected readers, you will appreciate the fact that each and every one of my cushion designs are influenced by my world travels; the places you read about right here every week.

Take a look at my Amalfi cushions, inspired by a photograph I took of the dome of one of the most iconic churches on Italy's Amalfi Coast. 

Or my Roma cushions, adapted from a photograph I took of a door knocker in Rome, Italy:

Designs are printed on silk fabric and each cushion is painstakingly hand sewn by Italian master seamstresses in an atelier in Como, Italy. Even the braided trim is crafted completely by hand and sourced from passémenterie artisans in Bologna, Italy.

These cushions are true artisanal works of art and underscore my belief that luxury begins at homeEach cushion cover features a 100% silk front and back, coordinating hand-braided trim, cotton lining, and zipper closure.

I can also create custom colors, designs and sizes, so the sky is the limit, just ask me.

Feel free to browse my website, which launches today and ... happy shopping!!
