I've always been a fan of Piero Fornasetti's mystical, black and white designs showcasing the face of 19th century operatic singer Lina Cavalieri. In particular, a throw pillow featuring that famous face is just the thing my sofa needs for a bit of je ne sais quoi. Unfortunately, $135, the price at Barneys New York, is more than I'm currently willing to spend.

CB2's new Jaime Pearl Pillow ($25) is a dead ringer for Fornasetti's designs, but instead the visage is concealed. I love the delicacy that the three-strand pearl necklace contributes. Better yet, this pillow has a two-for-one special: the back has a black background with a white sketch, so you can flip it to change the look!
