Throws By SIRO Issue

Pillow Talk

Throw pillows are the perfect accessory. They can add color, pattern, and comfort in an instant, and they can be switched out easily if you want to change your decor (or if you just change your mind). They're perfect for anyone who wants a quick change, or who wants to test out a color or pattern without making a big commitment.

Any designer will tell you that finding the right mix of decorative throw pillows for sofas, chairs and beds is a pain in the neck but well worth achieving. Decorative pillows make a room more cohesive, interesting and comfortable. The challenge is that there are a lot of details to consider — colour, pattern, texture, trim — so many designers end up custom-making them, which is not only time-consuming but also too expensive for most of us. At SIRO HOME, We decided to do it for you!

The Cooler Side of The Pillow

Let's flip things over and talk about choosing the perfect throw pillow. This requires considering a few different factors. Here are some key things to keep in mind when looking for the perfect throw pillow.

Colour: The first thing to think about when they're trying to choose the perfect throw pillow. The key thing to remember is that an accent pillow should always compliment the sofa or chair it will be sitting on. This means it can either blend in or stand out.

Shape: Square pillows are incredibly versatile and look good on just about any sofa, chair, or bed. Rectangular pillows tend to look nice when placed on chair seats leaning against the chair back.

Box pillows have more depth and can add dimension to any spot they're placed. Round pillows are not as common as they once were, and while they can look pretty on certain pieces they don't quite fit on all styles of furniture. If you choose to decorate with round pillows, try to use them sparingly.

Size: When it comes to choosing the perfect throw pillow, size matters. The main thing to remember is that the pillow should always be in proportion to whatever piece of furniture it's placed on. Keep in mind if you have multiple pillows sitting on one piece of furniture, think of the collection of pillows as a single unit and make sure it's still in proportion.
