With so many to choose from, finding the right throw pillows can be a bit tricky. Here are some tips on how to style a sectional sofa with throw pillows.

Sectional sofas are meant for lounging. Whether it’s TV watching, reading, or just hanging out, a sectional sofa should offer plenty of comfort but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Throw pillows are an easy and inexpensive way to also add depth, texture, and unique style to a sectional sofa. They can tie other design elements into the room or offer a much needed contrast or pop of personality. With so many to choose from, finding the right throw pillows can be a bit tricky. Here are some tips on how to style a sectional sofa with throw pillows:

1. Mix a bold pattern cushion with a more subtle cushion.
Patterned throw pillows, when paired with a solid accent colored pillow can add symmetry and a nice contrast. The subtle chenille fabric of the Monterey sectional pairs perfectly with geometric, colorful abstract throw pillows. The throw pillows come with the set, and are zipable and reversible for simple care and maintenance.

These throw pillows incorporate the sofa color while also offering some much needed contrast and texture.

3. Don’t be afraid to add a little color to a neutral sofa.
A white sectional sofa practically cries out for a pop of color, and red cushions do just the trick. Matching your throw pillow to the color of an accent wall in the room or a certain hue from the art hung above the sofa will also work well.
