As an Interior Designer, and owner of The Home Studio ( for over a decade, Marian LaFrance-Silverman has always said, “Decorative Pillows are the jewelry that completes the outfit.”

Fabric has always been Marian's passion starting with making her own clothes at age 11. She’s an artist, an interior decorator, and has even created beautiful stained glass windows and lamps. Despite the other interests she was always drawn back to fabrics. "Fabrics bring the interest and depth in to a room with color and overall design."

With that Marian convinced her son Brian to join her in creating Pillows by Dezign.
