The Golden Cleat
Indoor/Outdoor Lumbar Chart Pillow (Wolfe Island to T. I. Park)
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.
At the center of this pillow is Grindstone Island, the third largest of the Thousand Islands, with the foot of Wolfe Island to the west and Thousand Island Park to the east. The Canadian town of Gananoque is situated to the north and Clayton, NY to the south, on the US mainland. This nautical chart is peppered with many small islands, such as the ones found in the Lake Fleet group and the Admiralty Islands. Some are barely large enough to officially count among the Thousand Islands; to be considered an island by definition, at least one square foot of land must be above water level year-round and home to at least two living trees.
