In my opinion, when buying pillows for your sofa be sure to add a few substantial ones to the mix. I’m talking 26″ x 26″ substantial. It will give your sofa a more luxurious designer feel.
Here’s my formula…
14″ x 20″
Oh, and let’s not forget about pattern. I used one solid pillow and two patterned pillows that relate to each other. This color and pattern combination is a perfect mix for spring.
But how do I make my pillows look so full and luxurious? Inserts my dear. For example if you have a 22″ x 22″ pillow cover go for a 24″ x 24″ feather down blend insert. Your pillow will always look full and need less primping! You can buy the inserts online at
So, let’s recap and put into practice … for a large comfy couch I would use
(26″ x 26″) pillows on either end.
(22″ x 22″) and
(14″ x 20″) in the middle. Done!
Why do I seem so stuck on pillows? They are the least expensive way to change the look of your room and I definitely have a hard core addiction to them.
Here’s a few combo’s I’ve selected for you from Etsy–you just have to add the solid. Also, most Etsy sellers will with work with you on custom pillow sizes …
