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.
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.
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.
