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.
This is an optional consideration and doesn't apply to many modern pillow varieties. If your decor is based on a traditional Victorian theme then you will undoubtedly opt for aubusson style pillows that are full of tassels and flared edges with trim to spare. Fringes definitely give the pillows more impact and for this reason you will want to use slim small edges on smaller pillows and limit the amount of large throws with big bold tassels and trim.
Various designs can be incorporated while making throw pillows. Holiday prints can be used if pillows are meant for Christmas celebration. Animal or cartoon motifs may appeal to kids and can be used as throw pillows. Fabric paint also can be used to decorate throw pillows. It can be painted by either brush or stencil. Some of them could be sponge painted or rubber-stamped.
