They may be straight or these pillows may be 'C' shaped and are used for both head and neck at one end and knees at the bottom as the person almost hugs the pillow. Body pillows are popular with pregnant women. Throw pillows, also known as throw cushions are square pillows that may be used to support the body on a sofa. They may also be decorative pillows that are used simply for looks on a bed or sofa and then removed before actually using the furniture.

When it comes to decorative pillows, the levels of craftsmanship nearly outweighs the vast designs and patterns available. If you are ready to upgrade your interior and want to add some quality to your decor there are a few things you need to know to help you select the best pillows for your money. The most vital aspect in determining pillow quality is the exterior construction; this should give you great immediate insight into the overall quality of the pillow. You'd be surprised at the shady work you can detect simply by examining the seams. Are the stitches evenly spaced from the edges? Does the pattern uniformly align at the seams, is it aligned in the middle? An easy way to tell a mistake from a unique design element is to compare two or three of the same pillow while you shop to see if they are all the same, as they should be. Also spend time examining the shape, if it is supposed to be a square throw make sure that it is. Many massed producing, quantity-over-quality dealers churn out cheap uneven pillows that are just square-ish.

Cheap throw pillows have a tendency to unravel at the seams. Though double edge stitching is not common, it is a great sign of a quality throw pillow. For aesthetic reasons many well crafted pillows will only have a single stitch so don't rule these out completely. Just make sure that the trim is not already unraveling and that you can't pull it apart with a quick on the spot quality check before you buy. When shopping online this is a hard thing to detect but many websites now offer a zoom feature which will let you get close enough to see the trim quality. On the upside, shopping on major sites usually has the advantage of showing user reviews, make sure you read these to see what other customers experiences have been with the pillow you have in mind.

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.

Use them to enhance the natural light in a room by hanging one across from a window so it reflects the landscape outside. They're a great alternative to a traditional painting or print. Situate the mirror so it doesn't cause glare. Mirrors can be problematic if they're placed across from a window with a western or southern exposure. Multiply the wide of the space. Mirror a long wall in a skinny space to double the visual width of the room. This is a great trick for halls, entryways, narrow dining rooms, gym rooms and master bathrooms.
