SHOP Photography darling Gray Malin ushers in spring with his new collection of indoor-outdoor pillows in collaboration with Cloth & Company. In a nod to his fine art snaps of jet-set locales from Palm Springs to Palm Beach, the offerings inject a dose of escapism into the everyday. Drawing on the Palm Beach aesthetic, the Cabana Stripe Palms pillow (shown above), Malin says, “brings the stunning sight of endless palm trees and a poolside resort feel to the design. I’ve always loved Palm Beach and have been inspired by the old-world glamour and the exquisite scenery, which I paid tribute to in my Gray Malin in Palm Beach images. It was a joy using images from my series and the fun, colorful atmosphere of Palm Beach as inspiration for the design.” graymalin.com
