bambi schnell zazzle tips for pillow shopping

 

 

 

Size

Standard squares (18×18 inches) nest neatly on sofas with typical dimensions. Oversize pillows (24×24 inches) create a more casual, loungey feel. If you have a modern sofa with a very low back, consider 16×16 inches.

Fill

A feather-and-down fill has more squish, and it’s also the priciest. Foam and other synthetic fills are stiffer. They hold their shape but look less lush.

Numbers

In design, odd numbers tend to be more artful. Try one, three, or five, depending on the size of your furniture and the look you want (one for a chair, three or five for a standard 88-inch sofa).

Pillowscape

An easy combo: a matched pair of square solids that contrast with the color of your sofa. One oblong pillow for the center of the couch and two interesting outliers (patterned, embellished, or oddly shaped) that reference either the color of your upholstery or the color of your solid pillows.

Texture

Tactile contrast : nubby linen against smooth leather or silk upholstery, or shiny pillows on a fuzzy couch. Add warmth and offer traction, so pillows don’t slide off seats.

Coordination

Think of a living room’s pillows as a family. The pillow on a chair doesn’t have to match the group on the sofa. But if it relates in some way (palette, style) the space feels unified and polished.
