If you're going for angular square or rectangle pillows you want them to be in the 16 - 26 inch range, no bigger but in a few cases they may be smaller. These pillows generally need to be large enough to full showcase a few passes of a given patter or even a large block of solid color. Rectangular pillows are really nice because the oblong shape is usually unexpected and adds a bit of extra flair. In most cases you will not be opting for a circular pillow, and unless you are an experienced designer or just know that you've got the stuff you should be cautious when approaching your sofa with spherical cushions. Round pillows tend to not blend well with the overall angels of your furniture, unless of course you a have very unique piece such as a cylinder bed or circular patterns in your rooms decor.
There are different kinds of pillows available, but the one people would most commonly know is the bed pillow. These are rectangular pillows that differ in length depending on the size of the bed that they are used on. Generally they are used inside a pillow case to help keep them clean. Bed pillows are used to support the head and neck when sleeping or lying in bed.
Bolster pillows are round and longer than a normal pillow but not as long as a body pillow, however they are used in a similar manner. They are used to a greater extent than body pillows are in providing comfort, but also serve a dual purpose in separating reluctant bed mates-for instant children who are made to share a bed. Husband pillows are used to prop a person up in bed, for instance to read or watch television. These pillows are tall for a person to sit against and have two arms that reach forward that you can lean on. The pillows get their name because using one is similar to being hugged from behind.
