One of my favorite scenes in a sitcom ever comes from the British show Coupling. Steve and Susan are going to move in together and are shopping for a new sofa for their home. When Susan asks Steve what he thinks of a throw pillow, he throws a fit and gives an impassioned speech on the uselessness of throw pillows and his utter contempt for the species that never fails to leave me in stitches.
As it happens, while I find the speech hilarious, I do like pillows. I like how they look and I do tend to cuddle up with them on chilly evenings. Today I found one not even Steve could object to too horribly. Here it is.
This suede throw pillow by Michael Kors means business, but it’s not afraid to let its softer side show, too. If you’re in the market for something cuddly enough to make her happy and masculine enough not to make him throw a fit, this could be your answer.
Oh, and don’t let price worry you, either. The retail value may be $190.00, but Bluefly has it at 40% off for a quite believable $114.00. And can you really put a price on something classic and classy that allows both side to win in the battle of the decorating sexes? I think not.
