Contemporary Throw Pillows and Blankets
Instantly bring warmth, texture, and a pop of color to any room with contemporary throw pillows and cozy blankets. Just a few well-chosen textiles have the power to transform your space, giving it life and personality. You can even express your personal style through accent pillows and throws. Choose colors and patterns that speak to you and coincide with your existing decor. Complement a room full of neutral tones with richly hued pillows or balance colorful furnishings with tonal textiles. The most popular pillow and throw materials include wool, cotton, linen, silk, and velvet. Swap out your couch throw blankets and decorative pillows seasonally. Opt for heavier fabrics, such as wool and velvet, in the cooler months. Use lighter materials, like cotton and linen, in the warmer months. A lightweight throw is perfect for curling up on the sofa in the summertime. Alternatively, plush velvet pillows and a wool sofa throw are great options when the weather cools down.
Types of Accent Pillows and Throws
Bed and sofa pillows come in a wide range of styles, shapes, and sizes, from small decorative cushions to large pillow designs that can double as floor pillow cushions. Whether used on a sofa, armchair, or bed, they offer additional back support and comfort. If you're curious how to style pillows on a couch, follow these simple steps. Depending on the size of your sofa, choose three to five pillows. Loveseats and settees require fewer pillows, while sectionals can accommodate more. Place your largest pillows in the corners of the sofa and arrange small pillows in front of the larger ones. Be sure to place lumbar pillows against the back cushions of your sofa for added support.
Next, if you're wondering how to decorate a bed with pillows, you can follow the same general principles. Choose one to three decorative pillows for a twin-sized bed; for queen- and king-sized beds, select up to five decorative pillows. Arrange the pillows from largest to smallest or arrange them in a small grouping, with the largest pillow at the back. Decorative throw blankets can also be used in living room and bedroom settings. In a living room, drape a sofa throw blanket over the arm of a couch or chair. In a bedroom, spread a throw at the foot of the bed, or drape it over a seat in the room.
