Throw/Sofa pillows and throws are the easiest method to give any couch that stunning, flawlessly completed designer appearance (not to mention the maximum lounge-ability). But with practically unlimited possible combinations, it might be hard to know where to start. Here, we’re breaking down the fundamentals, from pillow dimensions to patterns, to help you construct the ideal couch arrangement.
The Blank Canvas
Whether white, gray, navy, or black, a neutral couch (such as the one above) is a décor classic—and provides for the largest number of cushion combinations. Some couches come with a set of throw pillows, such as the white squares above, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with them. Swap out two, three, or all of the pillows to give your couch a new, personalized design.
As a general guideline, an odd number of pillows provides for the most natural, welcoming arrangement: three for smaller couches, and five for bigger ones. For this 92-inch couch, we’ll use five—but our recommendations may be applied to sofas of any size.
Creating a Versatile Base
Start with a pair of neutral-tone pillows—either 22- or 20-inch squares, which feel luxuriously comfortable on bigger couches, or standard 18-inch squares—to provide an adaptable basis for the remainder of your arrangement.
For your foundation pillows, consider a material that plays against your couch in an unusual manner. We adore how these silky linen squares appear against our sofa’s pristine cotton slipcover—but velvet or wool would be as stunning.
Color, Pattern, and Personality
Now for the truly exciting part! Pick a pair of square pillows—either the same size as your first layer or a bit smaller—in a color and pattern you enjoy. Look for something that picks up on the colors of the surrounding space; your area rug is an excellent beginning point, but you may also draw inspiration from your wall color or other furniture.
Here, we picked items in a traditional blue stripe, which offers a softly summery mood to the white couch and connects into the art and decorations in the area.
The Wild Card
To complete your pillow party, add one additional item in a smaller size (bolsters or lumbar pillows are excellent here) with a distinctive texture or pattern: Think metallics, embroidery, or even fake fur.
We decided for a paisley design with a navy border, which compliments the striped squares without being matchy-matchy. The smaller size and rectangular form lend balance to the entire arrangement, providing interest and preventing the couch from seeming overcrowded—you want plenty of space to get warm, after all!
The Finishing Touch
No gorgeously decorated couch is complete without a throw, which adds one more layer of lovely texture (and massively ups the comfort quotient) (and majorly ups the comfort factor). We picked a light quilted design in a neutral color that can transition from summer to autumn with ease.
For a tailored style, tuck the throw neatly over the back or arm of the couch; for a casual vibe, just lay it over one side.
Bonus Round: Change It Up
For the season, for the holidays, or whenever the mood strikes! Simply swapping out one or two cushions may give your couch (and room) a completely new appearance. Here, changing the striped squares with cushions in a navy-and-white animal design is a simple switch that moves the couch from breezy elegance to laid-back grandeur.
