Nothing adds to the comfort and overall feel of a room like a few lovely pillows adoring a chair or sofa. More than just a comfortable place to rest your head, pillows can add softness, texture and color to your decor.
Selecting Fabric for Pillows
You can use fabrics and trim in contrasting colors to accent your sofa or a club chair. Because of their smaller size you can really splurge on a luxury fabric when designing your custom pillow. Fabrics like a delicate embroidered silk or an antique tapestry make lovely choices for accent pillows, while something more durable should be used for cushions for benches and chairs.
Rutherford’s Design carries a line of washable Indoor-Outdoor fabrics. These durable woven fabrics come in a variety of colorful patterns, making them an excellent choice for chair cushions in a child’s room and in the kitchen. This fabric is also idea for pillows and cushions for patio furniture.
Using Trim and Fringe on Pillows
The use of decorative trim and fringe will give your pillow its unique look. Using trim, braid or fringe in contrasting or coordinating textures and colors will give your decor a distinctive look all your own. A soft brush fringe, a whimsical ball fringe or even a lavish bullion fringe can dramatically change the look of a simple, solid colored pillow from casual to wow!
