Pillow Talk

From Kim

Gather an armful of our delightful hand-loomed silk Ikat pillows from Istanbul and create your own Shangri La, inspired by Doris Duke's magnificent Honolulu Estate. Built in 1937, the property is an ode to her love of Hawaii and her passion for Islamic art and architecture.


Duke was an adventurous, intelligent and athletic woman who enjoyed the freedom her great inheritance provided; it also allowed her to pursue and support many interests including travel, the arts, historic preservation and wildlife conservation.


It was on her 1935 honeymoon tour around the world that her lifelong enchantment with Islamic arts began and inspired buying trips for years to come.  Her collection is unrivaled and exquisitely curated as only a visionary can create.  One may visit her Shangri La by making a reservation through the not-to-be missed Honolulu Academy of Arts .
