The Teal Leopard Introduces Martha's Vineyard Inspired Pillow Collection

Pillow Covers are from designer quality home decor fabrics and materials. Handcrafted quality details & artisan quality workmanship.

Martha's Cottage Collection

On October 17th, custom home decor designer and fabricator Marilie W. Smock will host a pre-release preview event at her new studio space in Broken Arrow. Smock owns Cord & Pleat Design, Inc., and is launching a new home decor line under her the Teal Leopard brand.

Named the Martha’s Cottage Collection, it’s a collection inspired by Smock’s grandmother, a pilot and traveler. “She flew planes all over the U.S. Later, she was one of the first female executives for J.C Penny’s, in human resources. Truly a woman before her time and an inspiration to many…. and certainly to me,” Smock said.

Smock’s grandmother, Martha Lingenfelter, traveled to many places, and the new collection celebrates the stories Lingenfelter told. “The story of the collection is: I imagined what kinds of notes and stories my grandmother would have from a trip to Martha’s Vineyard in the ‘40s and each pillow is based on a place she might have visited there – along with a short entry as I would have envisioned it in her journal,” Smock said.

Smock is driven by the idea that someone’s home should reflect the personality, tastes, and lifestyle of the people who live in it, and should do it with style and quality.  “I noticed a distinct lack of quality fabrics and detail options in many home decor products, so I strive to provide designer quality fabrics and handcrafted designer details that are typically only available from custom made products,” Smock said.

The pre-release event for the limited edition Martha’s Cottage Collection from the Teal Leopard is from 4p to 8p on Tuesday, Oct. 17th at 24212 E. Highway 51 in Broken Arrow. Items from the collection will be made available for sale first to attendees. The collection will be available to the general public via the website beginning at midnight on October 18th. Light refreshments will be served at the event.
