What Houzz contributors are saying:
Back cushions. The back cushion on a piece of upholstery doesn’t have foam. Instead, it’s filled with either polyester fiber, down or a combination of the two. It should be constructed from down-proof ticking and be sewn with channels to ensure the filling will stay put. Tip: When shopping, unzip a back cushion to look for channels and make sure there aren’t any feathers poking through.
Off-white. An off-white wall color works well in rooms that have white furnishings. I see many spaces where everything is the same tone of white, and it all blends together so no one element stands out.I think it’s best to bring definition to a white room by using a wall color that is slightly different, such as ivory. This way, if your furniture, lamps, area rug and other accessories are more of a pure white, those things will give the room depth and interest.A similar paint color is White Shadow by McCormick Paints.
