Tips for Picking out Throw Pillows

Posted by Pillow Perfect Inc. | November 7, 2014 | Category: , , , |

Throw pillows are great finishers to an interior decorating project. If you’re a bit concerned on how to pick the right ones, don’t fret: it isn’t rocket science. Here are a few handy tips:
Consider size– Throw pillows come in a range of sizes, but the most popular choices are about 18 inches as they go perfectly with conventional-sized sofas. If you have a bigger sofa, then you should likewise opt for bigger throw pillows (24 inches) to create a relaxed, lounge-like feel. At the end of the day, it’s all about mixing and matching—surely a 24-inch throw pillow (more so three or more of them) wouldn’t work well with a small sofa, would it?

Shape– Throw pillows come in four basic shapes: bolsters, squares, rectangles, and rounds. In order to judge which shape would work well on an area, you should determine how the pillow will be used. If you’re looking to provide ample body support while relaxing, opt for squares, obviously. Your furniture’s aesthetics also play a part. For instance, a sofa with a lot of sharp edges can be softened a bit with round pillows, and vice versa.

Design– The design aspect of the throw pillows would rely heavily on your preferences and needs. For example, you could use neutral-colored prints if you’re looking to play it safe. Or, you could play around with contrasting textures to complement your furniture. It’s your call.
