Updated on August 4, 2011

Throw pillows for decoration

We all want an attractive living room. A living room gives the first impression of the inside of your house and so making it very attractive should be your desire. There are many ways to bring out the beauty of your living room. I am going to talk about throw pillows.

Throw pillows are small pillows that are of the decorative type. These pillows are different from other kinds of pillows as they are meant for decoration purposes as the primary function while other pillows are mainly for support and comfort. These pillows are also known as toss pillows.

Throw pillows for decoration

Throw pillows are mostly used on sofas and armchairs for the sake of decoration. The pillows are designed in a pretty way that adds that final beauty touch you want for your living room.

These pillows are just the best when you want to blend the colors of your living room. They tie in the colors so well that your living room is transformed. These pillows are really good at enhancing the look and feel of your living room.

How to select Throw pillow

Types of throw pillows

Throws pillows come in different shapes and sizes. There are circular, rectangular, square and cylindrical- shaped throw pillows. They also come in different sizes for whatever color you choose. The cylindrical throw pillows are known as bolsters and are also as popular as the square ones.

You are also spoilt for choice when it comes to the textiles used to make throw pillows. There is a wide range from silk, cotton, leather and micro fibers. The pillows also have different designs. Some are plain while others have some pattern and it all depends on what you would like. Plain throw pillows go well with patterned sofas while patterned throw pillows go well with plain sofas.

These pillows are easy to acquire and are affordable too. They can be bought online at pillow online stores or you can get them at your local pillow specialist store. There is a wide variety to choose from and so your taste has been catered for.
