Throw pillows can make a big impact wherever you decide to place them. They add new colors and textures to a sofa, bed, armchair, bench and more! Get creative with the huge selection of throw pillows from Raymour & Flanigan.
How many throw pillows do I need?
The number of throw pillows you need depends on the piece of furniture you’re decorating. For an armchair, one pillow might fit the chair perfectly. Or maybe two smaller pillows could provide the look you’re going for.
On a sofa, you can try a symmetrical look by using an even number of sofa pillows. Nestle a few on each end for a balanced look. For a look that’s a little more unexpected, add a pillow right to the center of the sofa. A small kidney pillow makes for the perfect focal point! Sofa pillows are great to switch out for the seasons, this way your living room always looks fresh!
For bedrooms, there are a ton of options for stacking on accent pillows. Don’t be afraid to play around with the arrangement until you find the perfect look. Use larger and smaller throw pillows to create layers of texture, patterns and colors. And sometimes, more is more with throw pillows!
Switch up your style with throw pillows
Throw pillows are an easy way to spice up a neutral look. A simple gray sofa pairs well with punchy colors like yellow, blush or blue. The same can happen in your bedroom by adding fun, playful accent pillows. The best part is that you can easily swap different throw pillows for an entirely new look. Switch up the theme based on the seasons or just for the fun of it!
Accent pillows are a great opportunity to play with color, texture and patterns when it comes to decorating. Try different fabrics such as linen, velvet, faux fur, and fringe to add an extra special touch to your throw pillow stack. Play around with different textures too. The end result will be rich and visually interesting.
Finally, finish off your throw pillow arrangement with a dose of patterns. Whether you choose plaid, floral, stripes or something different, patterns are the perfect accent to add to a sofa or bed. Mixing patterns is easy to do with throw pillows too! Just keep the overall color palette consistent and you can play with mixing stripes and polka dots or plaid and floral!
Throw pillows are an easy and low-risk way to experiment with your decor. Add a few to almost any room to boost comfort and style all at once. And if your tastes change, no worries! Simply swap your throw pillows out and you’re on your way to a whole new look.
