Alexander Girard Sun & Heart Pillow 1961. Herman Miller

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The sun, heart, angel, and castle motifs Alexander Girard created for these rare pillows are some of the most recognizable graphics of the mid century era. The pillows were originally sold at Girard's T&O ( textiles and objects ) shop in NYC and then available by special order through Herman Miller. Although these motifs have been used on countless Girard related products over the decades the original pillows are exceedingly rare.
