4 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing Pillows

MISTAKE #1: Not Considering the Overall Space 

Instead of thinking only about the piece of furniture that the pillows will be going on, make sure to zoom out a bit and also take into account the overall space. What colors, textures, patterns, and styles are already in the space? How do you want the room to feel? Do you plan to make any changes or additions in the near future?


MISTAKE #2:  Trying to Match with Pieces You Don't Like  

Before adding something new, sometimes it's a good idea to first consider if there's anything you want to remove first. 
I've seen people unconsciously try to choose pillows that will match or coordinate with an old chair upholstered in an outdated fabric or a piece of art that they later admitted they never really loved and considered to be an eyesore. 
To avoid feeling frustrated and ultimately unsatisfied, take a moment to assess what's in the room with an editor's eye. If there's something in there that you don't love currently, make sure not to let it dictate your pillow decisions. Make a plan to get rid of it, or at least move it. If you design around pieces you actually like, you'll be much more likely to be happy with the end result. 

MISTAKE #3:  Choosing the Wrong Size 

Scale is one of the most common design mistakes people make. A pillow that's the wrong size looks off and cheapens the overall appearance of a space.  Refer to our Sizing Cheat Sheets for a summary of the best sizes for each sofa type and bed size. 

MISTAKE #4:  Choosing the Wrong Insert 

The right insert or filler is essential to a great looking decorative pillow. We generally recommend using inserts that are 2" larger all around than your pillow cover.  For example if you have an 20x20 pillow cover, you'll want to use a 22x22 insert. This will ensure that your pillow is filled out fully and looks luxuriously plump. If the insert is too small, the pillow cover will look saggy. Refer to our Insert Size Guide here.
In regards to the fill type, we recommend going with feather down inserts. Feathers provide firmness, weight, body and support, while down provides softness and comfort. If allergies are a concern, good quality alternative down inserts that mimic the softness of down are the next best thing. You can find our list of recommended insert sources here

Unique Styling Idea for Sofas: Two Long Lumbars

For a unique look, try two long rectangular pillows instead of the usual squares. In this living room above, Annie Diamond opted for two of our 14x30 Latte Velvet pillows for her sofa. All our solid velvets, as well as most of our Regular Collection pillows, can be custom made in this or any rectangular size. Contact us with any questions!

  1. Get a patterned pillow fabric. Marks can be camouflaged when they invariably appear, as they do.

  2. Get your pillow fabric on both sides instead of having a solid-backed option. Then should something irreparable happen, you can flip!

  3. Kid-friendly materials, could be performance, like Crypton or Sunbrella, or fabrics with synthetic fibers like polyester. Another great option is high quality velvets with a soil-resistant finish and a high durability rating.

  4. If you have linen blend fabrics, spray covers with ScotchGuard to help liquids bead up and protect against stains.

  5. Don't be afraid to invest in some beautiful pillow covers because you're teaching your kids to live with beautiful things, it will add joy to your life every time you see them, and if mom's happy, everyone's happy.

1 Pillow, 5 Ways: Trotwood Beacon Hill

We just added a brand new pillow to our shop -  the Trotwood Beacon Hill.  One of the things I love about it, is that because it's multi-colored, it can be styled several different ways.  You can play up the colors for a bright and cheerful look, or go the opposite route for a calmer more serene look. To give you some ideas, below are five different done-for-you combos.
