Pillows are a major part of our home décor. They are mainly used for making seating arrangements comfortable, but they also add beauty and aesthetic appeal to your home.
Many people use throw or decorative pillows, for sofas and couches. Most interior designers stick to one basic rule while decorating; when the sofa cushions are plain, the pillows should be decorative; when the cushions are heavily designed, the pillows should be absolutely plain.
This adds a classy look and elegance to the rooms in which these pillows are placed. Let us find out the different fabrics that you can use for your home.

These pillows are commonly used as part of decorative accessories for the house. They are usually available in small sizes, and in sets of two, or more. They are often used on beds, as well. Here are some ideas that you can use, while buying pillow covers for your house.


One of the most convenient and commonly used pillow covers are cotton ones. They are inexpensive, washable, soft, and durable. There are many ideas that can be used for these pillows, as cotton can be dyed and printed in any color and design.
