Using Outdoor Throw Pillows
Decorating with outdoor throw pillows brings color, style, and fun into your busiest and most exposed spaces. Just like decorating indoors, it helps to pick a palette of four to five colors per area and match your pillow selections to it.
Below you'll find some of our favorite advice for getting the most out of your outdoor pillows:
Most indoor/outdoor throw pillows are made from UV-treated, mold, and mildew resistant fabric with a durable, long-lasting filling. If you're wondering what fabric is best for throw pillows in an outdoor setting, you'll want indoor/outdoor material. Most will be acrylic, polyester, or polypropylene.
Another common question is, can you use down pillows outside, and the answer is no. In an outdoor setting, the down feathers will become waterlogged, causing them to mold and develop an unpleasant odor.
Keeping Your Decor in Place
How do you keep outdoor throw pillows from blowing away in high winds? It would seem as though windy areas would make it impossible to decorate with throw pillows, but it just takes a bit of modification to keep them in place.
You can either purchase a commercial solution or sew a ribbon to the back of each pillow. You can easily remove the ribbon with a seam ripper, and it allows you to discreetly fix your pillows to a bench or chair by tying them.
With so many patterns, styles, and colors to pick between, shopping for outdoor pillows is an exciting experience. Before you buy, make sure you're getting the best pillows for you by following the tips below:
Color and Symmetry: Always keep symmetry and color palettes in mind when decorating with your outdoor throw pillow sets. Following a color palette and symmetrical placement allows you to create the most pleasing throw pillow arrangements.
Durability: Many people ask “Can you use indoor throw pillows outdoors?” Unfortunately, this isn't a good idea. Use indoor/outdoor fabric for outdoor pillow arrangements to avoid sun bleaching, mildew, and other issues. Indoor/outdoor pillows can, however, be used indoors in busy spaces.
Quantity: Unless otherwise noted in the product description, all outdoor throw pillows are priced and sold individually. This allows you to pick a range of designs, patterns, and colors to create an exciting pillow arrangement.
