One of the quickest ways to refresh your living room—or a couch you’re completely over—is by changing out the pillows. We’ve all heard it a hundred times.
But, I’m campaigning for bigger pillow sizes, as long as you’re making a change. I think every sofa needs at least one pair—if not more—of big pillows to anchor the ends. Think 24 or 26 inches—the same size as the big, square Euro shams that are on your bed. If it were up to me, 16-inch pillows would be banned. And, 18-inch pillows walk a pretty fine line.
Sometimes, the larger size is hard to find ready-made from the big box retailers. But, Etsy is a great resource since you can order most of the pillows in various sizes. You may end up spending a little more for the extra inches, but I promise it’ll be worth the difference once they’re on your couch.
Amazon is another great source. I just type “24” in the search bar followed by whatever kind/color pillow cover I’m looking for. Also, for these, be sure to order 26” down or down alternative inserts so that they’re stuffed. (I like these.)
