GREENWICH, Conn. -- Tiger Lily’s, a Greenwich interior design studio and custom workroom, has been approached to make the cushions and linens for Pope Francis’ visit to New York City next month, according to a Greenwich Time report.

The upholstery staff at Tiger Lily’s are Roman Catholic immigrants from Ecuador so they were very proud to be chosen for this unique assignment of Pope Francis celebrating Mass at Madison Square Garden, the report said.

Pope Francis, who is from Argentina, wanted the pulpit for the event to be simple and to celebrate the migrant community in the area, the report said.
