By now I’m sure most of you realize I not only like beautiful, well-made things. But I also get easily tickled by clever ideas that incorporate design with inspiration and conversation. These plush pillows are a perfect example.
What started as a handmade birthday gift for her father-in-law soon turned into LATE GREATS, Chen Reichert’s series of stuffy historical figures for budding buffs and longtime fans.
Chen sketches, researches, sews, stuffs and otherwise puts together the historical figures. These little guys (and girls) are not only adorable sitting on your bed. They might just inspire your kids to read a little history.
With Chen’s collection, there is bound to be one that steals your heart. They are available for purchase for $36 each at http://www.lategreats.com/collections/all. Congratulations on your success, Chen. Collectors, enjoy.
