The Thing: a throw cushion that takes lounging up a notch

The Thing: a throw cushion that takes lounging up a notch

Bev Hisey has a mission. The Toronto-based textile designer, who recently converted her Dundas West studio into a gleaming white showroom, wants her cushions to be talked about. So she makes them in a series of shocking bright colours. And she makes them in contorted shapes. And she makes them in a blown-up pixel pattern—a nod to computer-processed precision—even though they’re all artisanal, handmade one-offs. (The dhurrie panels are hand-woven in India, then stitched together and stuffed in Toronto.) We like them for all of those reasons, but mostly just because they’re pretty. From $130. Bev Hisey Showroom, 1066 Dundas St. W., 416-703-3418.
