Time for some fun in the sun!

With spring here and warm weather on its way, it's time to start decorating those patios, balconies, backyards, and gardens for another summer of outdoor lounging and entertaining.

But not to worry - at Eastern Accents, we have plenty of outdoor-friendly decorative pillows that are fun, beautiful, and (most importantly!) super-comfy and soft to the touch. We use the best UV-protected water-resistant fabrics that will keep their color and shape all while maintaining the same wonderful look and feel of any indoor Eastern Accents product.

Celerie Kemble Outdoor

Our oh-so-elegant New York-based licensed designer Celerie Kemble has created a line of outdoor-friendly decorative pillows with her very own chic flair.

Urban Balcony

Channel the cosmopolitan cool of an elegant townhouse with this collection of weatherproof decorative pillows. Pairing warm grey tones with a punchy coral, Urban Balcony provides a chic backdrop for a lazy Sunday brunch or cocktails in the sun.

Lake House

Reminiscent of weekend breaks with the family and romantic getaways in the great outdoors, this collection of weatherproof decorative pillows takes us right back to our favorite Lake Michigan cottage. Inspired by a timeless naval aesthetic, each piece recalls blissfully carefree days.

Sneak Peek! Our April 2018 Thom Filicia for Eastern Accents moodboard

What’s your favorite memory from the past 5 years?

One of my favorite (and most surreal) moments has to be sitting on the back of a Bentley being led by a marching band through High Point, NC to the Eastern Accents showroom with the Mayor in tow and hundreds of people cheering us on as I was running for the "Oval Office" with the mission to "Make America Beautiful Again". To me, that was a truly unique, hilarious, fun and brilliant marketing moment that could have only happened with Eastern Accents.

How would you describe your aesthetic in 5 words?

Refined, Fresh, Timely, Timeless, Inviting

What are your top 5 places to go when you visit us in Chicago?

1) The Chicago Athletic Association for architecture, drinks & dining - and it overlooks another one of my favorite places…

2) Millennium Park.

3) Merchandise Mart - Art Deco architecture, the largest building in the world at the time of its completion in 1930 and an epicenter for design.

4) Getting yelled at post-cocktails at 2am at the Wiener Circle (though for the record I was able to win them over and make friends).

5) The Chicago River and being able to see the city from the water. I have a love of boats, bridges and architecture, and Chicago has all of those in spades. It’s truly unique to Chicago and a magical experience.

What are your 5 first steps when starting a design project?

1) Understand the lifestyle, point of view, and aesthetic of your client. Whether a residential or commercial project, get to know the person, couple, family, or brand you are designing for and their design objectives.

2) Understand your architecture, whether contemporary, modern, midcentury, or historic. Having a good sense of the bones of a space will start to inform your design decisions.

3) Understand your location and geography and other key influences, as they play an important role and help to give your project a sense of place.

4) Don’t forget to have an appreciation for the unexpected so that your work doesn’t feel predictable and is a unique representation of the client, the architecture and the location.

5) Don’t allow your design to feel too self-conscious. Allow it to have a looseness and human element so that there is always a balance and liveability to your interiors.

What are your top 5 ways to use Thom Filicia decorative pillows?

1) Personalize It: A unique combination of patterns, textures and decorative influences makes your interiors feel thoughtful, curated, and collected.

2) Layer Layer Layer: Decorative pillows are a great way to add a layer of personality and a unique point of view to your interiors.

3) Add a pop or make a statement: pillows are a great (and easy) way to add a fun, editorial, graphic, or playful pop of color to any space.

4) Mix It Up: Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, colors and textures to tell your story and make a space your own.

5) Seasonal Statements: updating your decorative pillows is an easy way to change out your look for the season and give your interiors an update that feels fresh and timely.
