Pillows aren't just for resting your head on! It's true that sofas, beds, chairs, and benches look boring without these decorative accents. Yes, patterns can (and should!) be mixed together, and textures should vary to keep things interesting. For example, a floral and a stripe would look amazing together, as long as they carry some of the same color. Then throw in a solid color pillow picking up the color from those. Try a velvet fabric with a cotton. You can also mix in various sizes, especially on sofas. I like to use 18" and 20" square pillows on sofas, mixed with any rectangular shaped pillows. And 26" Euro size pillows are great for beds to accompany your standard, Queen or King sleeping pillows. Lumbar pillows, 14"Hx22"W, are a good option for chairs because they typically span the width of the chair.
I understand that it can be tricky trying to figure out what pillows will work together. I'm taking the guesswork out of it for you here - try these combinations. All items are shoppable. Plus, they are immediately available for shipping. No long waits like with most items these days!
