Who knew floor cushions could be so elegant and sophisticated? But, that exactly what these beautiful silver silk floor pillows are! The Karin Glacier Floor Pillow and the simply named Silk Pillow – Silver would be gorgeous in a Hollywood Glam living room or a glamorous modern bedroom.
The Karin floor pillow is created from striped silk dupioni pulled into deep button tufts. From the cover of wide-stripped white and cool glacier gray to the beautiful boxed corners and self-covered buttons, this pillow exudes luxury and richness of modern pillows.
The Silk Pillow in silver is a simpler version with a story to tell. Made in Thailand by a small, but gifted group of textile artisans, these pillows are natural from their kapock stuffing to their hand-woven silk covering. Can you believe the creators of these floor cushions not only fashion the pillows, but first grow the silk worms, weave the fiber and dye it with vegetables, flowers and herbs?
Needlepoint pillows are a quick and easy way to add color or a whimsical touch to almost any room. Consider for instance, the Paris Bottman Cat in Hat Needlepoint Throw Pillow. Who could resist that face? Try to look at that adorable image and not smile. Bet you can't do it.
To make an especially happy statement, pair Cat in Hat with Ice Skating Cats Needlepoint Wool Pillow, another one of the accent pillows that showcase the enchanting artwork of Paris Bottman. They would look great tucked in among several solid color pillows on a sofa or bed.
These cat pillows tell a story and so do lots of other beautiful needlepoint pillows. Dogs are another favorite for these designs. You'll find the most appealing dog images done in needlepoint. They're sure to bring a smile to any dog lover's face. It's not all about animals though. Florals and graphic designs also have their place on these beautiful plump little pieces of art.
Bolster pillows have been used for centuries to “bolster” or support the user in bed or when sitting. Practical as they may be, today’s bolster pillows are still making the rounds in beds, chairs and on sofas, but unlike their predecessors they have taken on a whole new persona as modern pillows in unexpected colors, textures and fabrics.
Take the Bolster Summit Pillow, for example, this circular modern pillow gives an updated feel to a modern or contemporary decorated home. Designed especially for head and neck support, it still keeps its aesthetic sensibilities with attractive, solid faux leather fabric in a several shades. It fits perfectly on each end of a sofa or stacked in multiples on the floor ready to be grabbed for a quick nap.

Decorative pillows make me happy. I love them in all shapes and sizes, fabrics and textures. I love them with decorative fringe and tassels and big buttons and ruffles. I love modern pillows with graphic designs and traditional pillows with classic patterns. They are hands down my favorite home décor accessory. I could have 25 on my bed and I would still be on the lookout for just one more perfect one. Five is the perfect number of sofa pillows to use in the living room. Accent pillows are so versatile you can put striped ones with floral ones and they look charming together and can be used in any room. Floor cushions, yes they’re pillows too, are great for lounging in front of the fire or to give the kids a comfortable spot to watch TV.
Do you love pillows too? What are some of your favorites? I went hunting on StylePath for pillows and this what I found…I'll take one of each.
