Popular Museum of Vancouver pillows gain wider market with Pillow Décor Ltd
PR Log - Feb 20, 2013 - (Vancouver, BC) — The Museum of Vancouver’s popular bus-scroll pillows hit the market only last November and were quick to sell out at all partnering locations. Now, Pillow Decor Ltd. is working with the Museum of Vancouver (MOV) to manufacture more of the unique line of memorabilia throw pillows to be sold online. The first of these pillows are already being sold as part of a new and innovative retail program that is being piloted by the museum.
“We are very excited to be working with the MOV,” said Jonathan Forgacs, co-owner at Pillow Decor. “We are all used to seeing images of cities such as Paris, New York and London applied to home décor products. You just have to take one look through the MOV’s collection to see that the possibilities for Vancouver themed products are endless.”
The throw pillows are created with licensed designs inspired from some of the estimated 70,000 artifacts held by the museum. With limited retail space at the Museum, the MOV has partnered with local Vancouver retailers to stock and sell the pillows, along with a range of other products including coasters, key chains and carpets. “Throw pillows serve as an excellent canvas upon which to display historical images from Vancouver’s colourful past,” said Kate Follington, director of development at the MOV. “Pillow Décor is creating some wonderful vintage style pillows that we believe will have appeal even beyond the Vancouver market.”
The Museum of Vancouver is an independent non-profit organization with the mandate to hold a mirror to the city and lead provocative conversations about its past, present, and future.
