The best thing about them is that you can use them anywhere around the house on the couches, armchairs and sofas. Their small size and fancy decorations of embroidery, cords, beads and seams make them a perfect decoration item, not forgetting that they are made in a wide range of colors that leave you with a wide selection to choose from. The guiding factor for you as you check out the colors should be the color of the walls and wall hangings as well as the other rugs around the house.
You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look. If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.
As you shop for the pillows, check to see that the casings are removable and of a washable material. This way, you will have no problem using them in a house full of small children who have a tendency of soiling everything around them. Some casings will require to be hand-washed while others will be best dry-cleaned. Depending on what you can afford, go for the best.
