Using Cotton Throw Pillows
You can use cotton throw pillows to add color and personality to a couch, accent chair, loveseat, bench, or bed in seconds. Throw pillows are an excellent finishing touch that can elevate your space from dull to inviting. And cotton is an ideal material that's both durable and eco-friendly.
Whether you want cotton throw pillows for bed decor or you’re buying cotton throw pillows for a couch arrangement, you’ll find what you’re looking for in our shop. Before you pick your favorite cotton pillows, though, check out our tips below for choosing the best ones for your home.
Choose a Color Palette
Your throw pillows should match the color palette in the room you're decorating. Most rooms work well with a palette of four to five colors, and you'll want to pick pillows that fall within the primary color family of the space.
If your room is already colorful or has a muted palette, look for cotton accent pillows in ivory, tan, white, grey, or other neutral colors.
As you shop for the perfect pillows, you’ll see 100% cotton throw pillows, cotton filled throw pillows, and cotton blend pillows. Think about your environment and design goals to help you pick the best options. The material will impact how easy your pillows are to clean and how well they stand up to moisture, UV light, traffic, and soil.
For example, if you want something with increased durability, a cotton and polyester blend might be ideal. Or if you’re looking for something softer, a cotton blend with wool or viscose would do the trick.
With hundreds of cotton throw pillows to choose from, picking your favorite ones is an exciting process. Before you buy your new cotton pillows, we recommend taking a look at the additional tips and hints below to help you avoid common buyer’s mistakes:
Color and Symmetry: Purchase a selection of pillows that suit the color palette in your room for the best results. And aim for a symmetrical arrangement to keep the design looking clean and intentional.
Durability: Cotton is a durable natural material that is commonly mixed with other fibers for enhanced durability, softness, or texture. Use the specifications section of each pillow to examine the materials. This will help you pick pillows that can stand up to the traffic levels in your home.
Quantity: Unless otherwise noted, all cotton throw pillows are priced and sold individually. Use this to your advantage and put together an arrangement with a variety of colors and patterns.
