Mon Khwan folding cushion

Has anyone seen a store in Toronto with one of these triangular Thai folding cushions for sale?

Our cat tore up the one my wife brought home from a Thailand holiday many years ago. I got rid of it (somewhat insensitively) and now I'd like to surprise her with a replacement. I've found one online but can't seem to get a response from the retailer. Extra points if you've seen one with that's the same colours as the one in the photo. Thanks.

I've seen them at Urban Outfitters in the past (in several color combinations, I think) -- do you have one of those near you? Might be worth a look at their site.

Kensington Market would be my first stop if I had to look randomly for something like that, more specifically the housewares stores along Augusta.

Without knowing for sure, I would definitely try "el Mundo de DiseƱo", which is on Queen Street West, across the street from MuchMusic, beside the New Tribe tattoo and piercing place. They have a pretty extensive selection of cushions and furniture from around the world (check out their 2nd floor selection too...).

There's also a similar store on Yonge Street, North of Bloor, South of Davenport, on the West side. I don't remember the name of the store, but they might have what you're looking for.

Best answer: You could call Kuda Furniture to see if he knows where to get them. He deals in mainly wooden Thai furniture.

But there are a bazzillion retailers who sell them on line. Try another one if you can't fined one in a brick and mortar.

Response by poster: Thanks everyone, I called Kuda, they had them in stock and I picked one up this afternoon. My sweetie is pleased.
