Introducing Sugar Feather

We love a good pillow. I mean, who doesn’t? They are the perfect accessory to add personality to any room. As stated many times before, I subscribe to the neutral sofa philosophy. The philosophy that says, she who invests in a neutral sofa will never be bored for pillows will always bring desired change. As the second layer of a room’s décor, they allow you to change your room as often as you change your taste – or the seasons change, it’s up to you – without breaking the proverbial bank. While not always inexpensive, they beat the heck out of buying a new sofa!


Because our love of pillows runs so deep we are always on the lookout for new makers. We are particularly excited to introduce you to a new pillow line we started carrying this year. Sugar Feather pillows are made in California and are infused with the essence of cool that only California inspires. In their words…


“Rooted in fashion and interior design, the Sugar Feather brand combines a contemporary look with a vintage feel. Each pillow is hand printed on Belgian linen and created using traditional garment techniques. Designed and made in California, Sugar Feather is a labor of love inspired by the desire to live in style and comfort.”


They had me at vintage and comfort, two of my favorite things. Sugar Feather designs are casual and cool, yet very sophisticated, with a color palette that is spot on and patterns that are sweet, sometimes simple, but always sublime. Here are a few of our favorites…

We have several designs in stock now but can always special order something for you. If you’re looking for a good reason to change your room then look no further. Sugar Feather is always a good reason.


  • The latest from Amy
Owner Amy Rutherford started Red Barn because she wanted to deliver a service — to provide both old and new in one place. No longer will busy shoppers be limited to reproductions or forced to shop multiple flea markets for the look or gifts they want. The trick in blending old and new, vintage and modern, classic and quirky, is balance. And Amy’s knack for mixing rustic antiques with urban chic has created a look that is both fresh and familiar.

Red Barn Mercantile opened its doors in September 2007 with a single vision in mind: providing old and new to offer our customers signature whole-room designs at great prices.

We’re more than a furniture boutique and provide more personalized service than a big box retailer. We work hard to bring you the highest quality furniture and gifts, the most unique conversation starters, wall hangings and accent pieces, whether they come from off-the-beaten-track flea markets, or the latest designers.
