Tired of looking at your same predictable sofa every day? We’re here to help you change things up. Instead of simply placing a pillow in each corner and calling it a day, check out our favorite inspiration images and shoppable picks below for a fresh take on an age-old decor dilemma.
1. Sleek & Simple
For a modern, clean look, try placing pillows in contrasting shapes right beside each other on one side of the sofa. The consistency in color ensures continuity.
2. Pattern Play
Try clustering trios of geometrically-patterned pillows together. Space them out between each sofa cushion for a look that’s anchored, yet casually rustic at the same time.
3. Piles of Pillows
To achieve a Scandi-inspired, minimalist look, pair a set of slouchy square pillows in one corner of the sofa (preferably one solid and one patterned), and prop a smaller, rectangular-shaped pillow in the center of the other cushion.
4. Striped Set
Instead of predictably tucking a single pillow into the corner of your sofa, why not take inspiration from Cottage Cloth and place a set facing inward? We love her choice of contrasting striped fabric, too.
This celadon striped pillow cover is 100 percent linen, which makes for an upscale seaside look at a fraction of the usual cost. The striped detail is hand-embroidered, to boot.
Each of these handcrafted pillows feature designs based off of traditional Congo garb. They’re created from natural dyed raffia to add an authentic, colorful touch to your sofa.
The price on this pillow may seem a tad high, but each piece is handcrafted from up-cycled, USA-grown cotton fabrics found along the sellers’ journey. The zippered cover is removable for ease of care.
You’ll enjoy the texture that this cream pillow organically adds to your sofa. The lumbar shape ensures you can place it anywhere for a pop of boho chic.
