The Golden Cleat
Indoor/Outdoor Lumbar Chart Pillow (Lake Ontario to Clayton)
This vintage nautical chart pillow features an indoor/outdoor fabric which looks and feels like a luxurious silk/linen blend but is actually made from a synthetic material which is resistant to water, mildew, and stains. While our indoor/outdoor pillows are ideal for a screened-in porch or a transitional space they equally suitable for a main living space. The lumbar pillow cover is 11 x 17" and comes with a 12 x 20" faux down insert which fills out the corners. The nautical charts featured on our pillows are from the early 1900s.
The fabric is custom printed for us in California on American-made fabric and we sew each pillow in our studio in Clayton. All of our pillows feature invisible zippers which allow you to remove the insert and wash the cover. We recommend hand washing the pillow cover with mild soap and allowing it to dry flat. It can be ironed on a medium to high setting.
This pillow features the mouth of Lake Ontario as it flows into the St. Lawrence River. Places of interest include Chaumont, Point Peninsula, Pillar Point, Three Mile Bay, Sackets Harbor, and Black River Bay along the lake, Cape Vincent and Kingston at the river source, and Clayton, further downriver. Wolfe Island, the largest of the Thousand Islands, is featured prominently along with Howe and Carleton along the St. Lawrence River. The chart is from 1940.
