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.

Basically it's what you commonly think of as stuffing; the stuff that they put inside stuffed animals and pillows. It's pros contain that it's inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere. Those are two very important features. The one con that I can think of off the top of my head is that it's sometimes hard to get it stuffed in evenly. It's sometimes thinner in a certain place than it is in the rest of the pillow. Or several lumps and bumps throughout. But practice does make better, that's for sure. You can also control the firmness of the pillow. That's another pro. Plus, you can make the pillows in absolutely any size you want. That's just that much more control. With a form, you can only make a pillow in the sizes that they offer the form.

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.

They consist of an outer case that contains some kind of stuffing. Some may be stuffed with feathers, but these are costly pillows and not suitable for the many people who are allergic to feathers.

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).
