When it comes to picking out throw pillows s, there are a lot of moving pieces. Putting color palettes, patterns, and materials aside, we’ve created a starting point that’s a lot more manageable to start with. It begins with picking out the right size.
You want pillows that feel substantial in scale without feeling overpowering or too small for the space. Next, we move on how to pair different sizes with layering anchoring pillows in the back and smaller pillows and lumbars in the front. Last, remember to fill your pillows correctly. Let’s made this simple — just buy the same size pillow as your cover to have a full, oversized look! Typically, you do want to size your insert up!
