I’ve had my Moroccan textile shop for about a year and a half now! It’s been really fun to curate and sell one of a kind, handmade pillows and floor cushions, and I’ve learned SO much during this new endeavor. I recently released a bunch of new pillows and they are so gorgeous I wanted to share here too! You can sort and filter pillows by shape (square vs lumbar) and also by type (kilim, cactus silk, boujad, etc.) so it’s really easy to discover and shop that way!
Here are some furniture-specific throw pillow styling tips:
- In the middle of bed, place two similar pillows of the same size next to each other (either same pattern or same color scheme)
- In the middle of bed, layer three pillows into a triangle – so the two in the back of the triangle are the same pattern and the one in the front (tip of triangle) is different
- For an accent chair, find one pillow, taking into consideration the size of the chair itself. You don’t want the pillow to overpower the chair! Often, square pillows 18×18″ or smaller or small lumbar pillows work best.
- For a bench, I prefer to have one lumbar pillow, but depending on the size of the bench, you can also do two or three pillows arranged slightly layered together in a row
- For the couch, consider size of pillow. I often will layer a larger pillow with a slightly smaller one in front of it.
- For leather couches — I prefer white/cream colored pillows or brightly colored pillows, such as greens, blues, and pinks. I would avoid browns and oranges clashing with the leather color.
I also am going to re-share some tips and tricks for styling and mixing and matching pillows!
Throw Pillow Combinations & Styling Tips:
- Don’t overthink it! When in doubt, just start putting pillows next to each other and keep playing around with the combinations until you love it.
- Make sure you have the right pillow insert! You want the insert to be 1-2 inches BIGGER than the pillow cover itself. This ensures the pillow is fluffy and full and doesn’t look like a flat pancake!
- When mixing pillows – have a common ‘theme’. Often I will try to keep color scheme in mind. So, the pattern/texture doesn’t need to be the same, but let the color cohesively tie the combo together. Or, I will do a group of pillows that have similar textures/patterns, but in different colors. As long as one element is cohesive (whether color, pattern, texture) you should be good to go.
