Few things transition the look of a living room or bedroom more than throw pillows. Adding throw pillows is one of the easiest ways to make a statement, add color, and bring character to a room without breaking the bank.
As a staple in many homes, throw pillows are offered in various fabrics, colors, and patterns to suit home design styles and personal preferences. Opt to go monochrome or mix and match, adding in checkered, floral, stripes, and other prints to create a customized palette of colors to accent existing decor. It’s incredible how a simple pillow on an accent chair, bed, or sofa can revamp a room.
Although square-shaped pillows may be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to the best couch pillow, remember that there are also a variety of shape options to be considered. Circular, knot-shaped, and barrel-style pillows are great highlights to boring furniture.
Whether you’re looking for minor changes or want to make a statement, throw pillows can help you do just that. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorites.
