Guide to Pillows
Pillows were originally used by the wealthy
and were made of various materials. Some were very hard and not used for comfort but more for prestige. Today, pillows are used by every one, every where and the variety of material is on the outside.
We use pillows as decorative accents
to add splashes of color, character, and personality to any room. The variety of fabrics and colors used help tie all the design elements together to complete the look of the room.
Pillows can be filled
with down or feathers for a very soft cuddly feel. Synthetic fibers or polyester filled pillows are firmer and allergy free. The combination of the two kinds I feel works best so you have some softness and the pillow is more apt to keep its shape.
Pillows come in a large variety of sizes and shapes
and are mostly used in the bedroom –
……on the couch –
…….on a bench –
So here is yet another way to jazz up your home for the holidays – add some texture and color with some fun pillows – happy holiday decorating!
