Modernseed has exclusively reissued six classic designs from Alexander Girard, often acknowledged as one the most important American furniture and textile designers of the 20th Century.

Best known for his work as the head of textile design at Herman Miller from 1952 until the mid-1970s and the celebrated redesign of Braniff Airlines in 1965, Girard often found inspiration in his passion for folk art (together with his wife Susan they amassed a collection of more than 100,000 items that was donated to the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe). This inspiration led to the use of bright colors and whimsical patterns in his work.

The pillows measure 12" x 12" and retail for $49.
