Throw Pillows: Mix textures and patterns. When choosing throw pillows, make sure to select different textures and patterns to create the kind of interest and depth you'd find in a painting. That's what we're doing when we're decorating — painting a masterpiece.
This sofa has two matching pillows, which create a level of symmetry. They're shiny and probably silky to the touch, which complements the matte sofa fabric. A furry pillow amps up the texture, and a pattern amps up the sense of fun.
