The last time we were in Cincinnati, I stopped into this little store on Vine Street and I saw one of these pillows embroidered with the image of suburban ranch homes. I loved it, but it was the wrong color for our room. When I got back to the hotel, I told my wife about it and the small company that makes them: K Studio. I'd seen their products online, but it wasn't until I'd seen them in real life that I realized how cool they were, and it wasn't until I talked to the proprietor at MiCA that I learned K Studio was based in Grand Rapids, a wonderful city in western Michigan where my wife and I have lived in the past and just a short drive from the smaller cities where we were raised. He also told me that it was a small business venture between a daughter and her mother, with the daughter doing the design and her mother working with the embroidery aspect. In short, I was in love with this company.
When I wrote to place my order for the pillow above, Shelly Klein wrote back to tell me she was a fan of the blog. So, of course, I had to buy one of K Studio's custom Family Series pillows, shown here:
