Sectional sofas are meant for lounging, whether you’re watching TV, reading or just hanging out. But just because a couch is warm and comfy doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. Putting throw pillows on a sectional is an easy and inexpensive way to also add depth, texture and unique style. Throw pillow can also help tie other design elements into the room or offer a much-needed contrast or pop of personality. With so many options to choose from, finding the right throw pillows—and figuring out how to style them—can be a bit tricky. Here are three exciting, innovative and original ways to make the throw pillows on your sofa look amazing.
1. Mix a bold pattern cushion with a more subtle cushion.
When paired with a solid accent-colored pillow, patterned throw pillows can add symmetry and provide a cool contrast. The subtle textured fabric of the Mesa gray sectional pairs perfectly with geometric, colorful abstract throw pillows such as the Vargo gray multi.
- Add a little shimmer with metallic pillows in gold or silver.
Metallics are a hot trend this year and metallic pillows in gray, gold or silver add warmth, comfort and style to a contemporary sectional sofa. 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 throw pillows do just the trick. Matching your throw pillow to the color of an accent wall in the room or to a red hue from a piece of art hung above the sofa will also work well.
When styling sectional sofas, there are several ways to get the look right. Repeating the mix of cushions in each of the three corners creates a harmonious look while still offering plenty of comfort. You can also try a mixing up patterns in the same color scheme, or just going with the colors, patterns and styles you like. Sometimes the most random assortment of pillows looks the best.
