They go well with the pillows I currently was using on my living room sofas. Beautiful pillows make such a difference to the look of the couch. You can easily change them out with the seasons, and give your furniture a completely different look depending on the style of cushions. I am going for a more relaxed traditional appeal. I tried to choose fabrics and fringes that compliment the room, and give it an extra special flare. The striped fabric matches two chairs in the room, and the longer greenish pillows with the tassels match our dining room chair fabric. While I try not to get too 'matchy-matchy' I also think it's wise to bring in some common elements to pull the room together. I chose neutral sofas, with a simple roll arm and skirt. I was a little uncertain about using a plain off white sofa, but I'm sooooo glad this is what I went with. They are the perfect neutral backdrop, and will stand the test of time and tastes. They have even survived for the past 3 years without major incidence with a 3 & 6 year old!
I always insist on down forms for my pillows. It makes such a difference in the look of the pillow, and really doesn't cost much. In fact, a few of these forms were purchased at Ikea for $5.oo each, and are just as nice as the more expensive forms I bought previously.
I went with two sofas in the room, rather than a love seat and sofa, as the room is large enough to support it, and it allows for more seating. This is the matching sofa, with a similar, but slightly different array of pillows. I am waiting on one remaining element in my room (a gorgeous little table that I have been refinishing) and will then share the entire room with you.
Who thought pillows would be such fun! They are definitely one of my favorite accessories in any room!
