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.

When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings.

Most homeowners would just buy furniture and would usually forget to put the right accent that goes with them. A sofa set needs the right centrepiece on its center table. The bedroom needs the right mirror that blends with the room's theme or motif. An ordinary living room will have a sophisticated and modern look if it is accented with a wall art. A study room can also have a modern flair. There are stylish and contemporary shelving or storage pieces that can create a modern look to an ordinary study room.

Break these lengthwise by adding a swag or valence different from the remaining part of the design.
