Beautiful Pillow Art

Textiles

Pillows are part of many homes, and they adorn beds as well as chairs and couches in common areas. Few people think about the design factors that go into creating pillows, but those who work with this form of textile put a great deal of thought into their work. They must envision how the pillow will be used, and this helps them to choose the style as well as the size and embellishments they will add.

In the bedroom, most pillows are often functional for sleeping on. They are generally a bland color because they will be covered, and the cases will match the bedding set. Over the years, designers have brought smaller pillows into the forefront, and they have matched them to various bedding sets to create a complete vision of how the bed should look when it is made. Many bedding sets now come with several additional pillow cases in contrasting colors, and some of them even include an accent pillow.

Common areas of the home may have pillows for several reasons. Couches and chairs are often a target area for throw pillows that will enhance the area or the furniture. These pillows can be found in furniture stores, and many are specifically matched to help show off a piece. They can be ordered with the piece if necessary, or the buyer might choose to shop elsewhere for their pillows. These pillows function mostly to bring out various colors in the furniture, but they can also be used for comfort.

Bright pops of color have become popular again, and pillows can help provide it. Small or large, each one can become a focal point for a piece of furniture. They have also begun to grace shelves and small nooks as a way to warm up an area that might seem bare, and many are specially designed to give an artistic touch to the home.
