Throw pillows add colour, texture and visual interest to your sofa. I can think of no greater way to keep your sofa fresh and interesting without getting a new one every year! Square throw pillows are a welcomed standard, but to mix it up I love rectangular pillows, on their own or combined with others. The wild mixture of pattern and colour pictured above work well together because there is just enough repetition of geometric and botanical gently balanced and finished off with the rectangular pillow front and centre. And, oh, those blooms are beautiful. Great colour.
This solitary throw pillow is such a sweet complement to the tufted sofa. How awesome would this room look with some marigold curtains and a little something to finish off the coffee table?
Note how the heavily patterned pillows dress an otherwise plain sofa. The sofa has clean simple lines, yes, but it is brought to life with the pillow combo. And Mr. Rectangular is the showstopper here. Another example of how many colours can be used with grey. My faaaaavourite being turquoise!
This little rectangular throw works with the taupe and blue scheme, but I imagine it could work well in a monochromatic palette with more oatmeal tones for texture. And is it just me or would a couple of these guys stood on end be alright?
I love the solidarity of these two throw pillows. So floral in a room not dainty at all. Bolsters would be lovely if used like this too. Throw pillows of all shapes and sizes come together to add personality and depth of character to the space they grace. Pillows should be daring, fun. What better way to take a chance on a colour or pattern you would normally shy away from. Come on! Take a chance. You might be surprised at how well a rectangular pillow fits into your grand scheme of things. It might just be your missing link, the key to all your mysteries, or maybe just a finishing touch.
