Christine Skaley Reid of Mission BC Canada, founder and owner of PillowThrowDecor launched her décor, designing and drapery workroom business after retiring from 26 years in the business world.
She’s studied art, textile artistry and drapery fabrication but remains most passionate about creating one-of-a-kind, stunning and fashionable decorative pillows and throws.
“Pocket Pillows” are chic contemporary pillows perfect for the apartment dweller with limited space or for people that like to have the remote control, ipod, or reading material within arm’s reach when settled on a sofa.
Her second signature line of “Luxe and Found Pillows” incorporates high end fabrics with upcycled materials and found objects like belts, hardware, telephone and electrical wiring and more. Here lies “the best of the best ” in a family of GEEK PILLOWS. These pillows have so much character they can almost talk!
Christine’s designs have been featured in national magazines such as February 2010 edition of Woman’s World Magazine.
Top North American design blogs such as Apartment Therapy included PillowThrowDecor in their list “Best Throw Pillows 2009″.
The Decorating Diva LLC, has featured Christine and her creations noting that she is a designer to be watched and followed as a trendsetter and an important source! Christine’s work has been reviewed by dozen’s more design blogs but her most telling critics are her customers.
“… I sent Christine photos of my living room, and a wallpaper swatch. Even though she never walked into the room herself, she used what I sent to create a perfect set of pillow covers, using beautiful material at reasonable prices, and coordinating patterns and colors perfectly. Plus, she is loads of fun to work with! Wonderful collaborator and highly recommended….” Linda (Etsy customer)
