What Should You Look for in a Throw Pillow?

You should look for color, texture, size, shape, and fabric when buying throw or decorative pillows. Evan Millard has some great advice: "In addition to shape and materials, I look for pillows that are full and hold their shape well." You want your pillows to look great. There is nothing worse than deflated-looking decorative pillows. 

Tracer Murphy also has some great tips. "The key word to describe what to look for is PERSONALITY! This can be through color, pattern, or texture."

You want your decorative pillows to stand out but still match with the rest of the room. Karen Roth always sticks with "the three c's — comfort, cleanability, and color!" Quality is also very important when it comes to decorative pillows.

How Do You Make Throw Pillows Match Your Sofa and Furniture

You must choose pillows that match what you are putting them on. Evan Millard has some helpful tips on how to do this: "I look for an element of a pillow that coordinates or strongly contrasts with the piece it's going with." Bear this in mind when shopping - focus on the shape, color, and pattern of the pillow.

It helps to find a link between the pillow and the sofa to create visual harmony. Tracee Murphy says it's important to keep your Color palette in mind. Murphy believes "a darker or lighter shade of any of the colors or a high-contrast neutral works," as it creates a good visual balance.

Murphy also highlights the importance of having fun with shapes and using the color wheel for inspiration. Karen Rohr says that size is crucial, and she feels that it is best when "the pillow ranges among the larger sizes before you work your way in with smaller ones." It is good to work with different heights and sizes.

Rohr also believes that you should "give your space what it craves," through the design and color of the pillow. You want the pillows you choose to enhance the space and the sofa. 

It can be challenging to find the right pillows for your sofa, but Amandeep Brar has some advice: "If your sectional or chairs are neutral or earth-toned, incorporate different-sized pillows in vivid hues. Have fun experimenting with patterns and textures." Everything you choose, from the decorative pillows to the sofa, needs to flow and complement each other.
