If you choose the decorative pillows for your house, think of it as your personal style that is enveloped in potent package. These pillows are usually small and they come in various shapes and sizes. For those home owners who love to experiment and play up with colors in their sofa decorations. The vibrant colors of these are best for chairs and sofas. The color combination and the cover prints will all depend on the overall theme of your home.
The interior of your throw pillow is also important and should be well inspected. Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).
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.
