Body pillows are far longer-as much as the height of an adult. They may be straight or these pillows may be 'C' shaped and are used for both head and neck at one end and knees at the bottom as the person almost hugs the pillow. Body pillows are popular with pregnant women. Throw pillows, also known as throw cushions are square pillows that may be used to support the body on a sofa. They may also be decorative pillows that are used simply for looks on a bed or sofa and then removed before actually using the furniture.
When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.
The size of your throws is also important, though it is not a real quality indicator it is something to look out for. A lot of manufacturers are making everything smaller to cut cost and this has permeated into the world of home decor pillows as well. Though this is somewhat of an individual choice depending on your design, typically large pillows look better and give a less busy and cluttered looked when layered together. You will usually want to go for something that is 16 - 20 inches or more unless you have a specific need for smaller pillows.
