          Arden plus Artisans is a collaboration between Arden Selections and inspired artists that bring their unique perspective and style to this personalized limited edition collection of outdoor cushions. Designed by Detroit artist Shelia Nicolin this painted fruit tree feels both old world and new age on a natural, cream ground. The graphic simplification of the branches and fruit references Art Deco design language, while the historic symbolism of this icon calls to mind traditional Illuminated Manuscripts and tapestries. This toss pillow was designed with versatility in mind, to use as a great accent pillow or pair with a seat cushion. This outdoor pillow features durable, UV resistant polyester fabric, which resists fading and repels water to ensure optimum use outdoors. Easy care and cleaning makes using your outdoor space more enjoyable with less effort. Simply spot clean with soap and water.

          Comfortable and good looking to boot!
          This 18x18 throw pillow is not only pleasing on the eyes, but it's extremely comfortable as well. It is incredibly squishy, yet once released, bounces immediately back to it's original shape.
          Looking inside, the reason for this becomes obvious: loose polyester hair-threads! That explains the awesome comfort offered by this pillow.
          The material has a pleasant feel to it, and is tough enough to have lasting durability. Despite being billed as an "outdoor" pillow, it's soft enough to be at home inside.

          Firm and decorative.
          This 18x18 throw pillow is quite an attractive piece. The woven golden brown pattern is a perfect counter to a solid colored surface, such as a leather couch. The weave is a bit on the thick side, however, making the front of the pillow quite rigid. This noticeably takes away from the comfort and softness one might be looking for.
          Looking inside, you have your standard bagged pillow material, made of polyester. This makes the pillow squishy, but only from the back.
          Overall, more of a decorative piece than an every-day use pillow.
          Pros: Looks Great, Rich Looking

          This is an absolutely wonderful 5 ft. x 8 ft. area rug. A perfect piece for the center of a room on a wood floor.
          It displays a beautiful, yet muted regal pattern with a faded grey-white look.
          It is nice & thick - about 1/4", with a medium-length pile.
          The edges and corners are hemmed tightly.
          The only thing better than the way it looks, is the way it feels!
          It's very soft and snugly on your bare feet; truly a pleasure to walk on.
          Overall, a good sized rug that fills up a room, but is not too cumbersome to move.
          Pros: Comfortable, Looks Great, Looks High End

          This is most definitely going to be one of those "love-it-or-hate-it paintings." Let's be honest. This artwork is as GENERIC as it gets. That being said, the painting is arguably well done, the colors shine through (which is notionally the most important) and are vibrant and distinct. This painting can find a home in pretty much any kitchen across America, without seeming out of place, or (unfortunately) attracting any sort of attention. This piece is akin to the plethora of "Paris" artworks that can be purchased for a song essentially everywhere.

This piece is akin to the plethora of "Paris" artworks that can be purchased for a song essentially everywhere.
          However, being so generic, the workmanship of this painting is surprisingly poor. The corners of the canvas are loose, and not glued down appropriately, leaving wings coming out of 3 of 4 corners. Additionally, the backing is actually glued on crooked. Even though you can't see it from the front, it goes to show the effort that went into framing this painting: sub-par.
          Overall, if you're looking for a kitchen or dining wall-filler that won't be noticed or attract questions, this is a safe piece. However, if you are searching something with meaning or depth, this painting is a definite pass. Read Less

          This wonderful framed canvas print of seashells is great for any aquatic themed room or hallway. I've it hanging in the hallway near the bathroom, matching a similarly colored ocean-themed rug.
          The 24" by 24" square print is large enough to fill up a blank wall without an overbearing feel to the artwork presence. The shell pattern allows the painting to be mounted in multiple different orientations, however the back only has mounting hooks on two sides.
          Overall, this print is a great addition to a room sporting mild pastels or ocean themes. Not too serious, nor overly whimsical, it lends itself to compliment a surprising array of different spaces.
          Pros: Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great

          The surfaces are "wrapped" in a sort of vynil-type covering. You cannot paint or stain this. However, if you were to remove the paper, no doubt you could stain/paint the wood underneath.
