Pillows & Throws

Like the curtains and drapes in your living room, accent pillows and throws are important decorative items that also serve a useful purpose. From sofas and lounge chairs to beds and even dining furniture, such as dining room chairs, these helpful pieces can add both comfort and decorative style to your furniture. It’s a joy to discover accent pillows and throws in a variety of different materials, colors and sizes. At Williams Sonoma, we’re here to help you find just the right match for your home decor dreams.

Picking Your Perfect Pillow

Discover a wide variety of different accent pillow types that you can choose from based on what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for waterproof pillows for your home’s exterior seating areas, for example, our selection of outdoor pillows provides a range of colors and styles you can use to enhance your space. You can also shop by material, with richly textured options such as velvet, faux fur and leather offering you the opportunity to express your style and embrace extra softness with a blend of different materials. No matter which type of pillow matches well with your needs, remember that it’s important to think about how you want to coordinate the pillows you choose with the existing decor in each specific room where you plan to place your pillows. You might want to stick with a specific material in order to create a specific atmosphere. Or you might go for a contrasting color to add a pop of brightness to the space. Make sure you match pillow cover size to the size of your pillow inserts. Or choose some fresh new pillow inserts to go with your covers.

Selecting Terrific Throws

Material is another element to think about when choosing the throws you want for your seating and bedding areas. Part of the reason material is so important is that different materials have different cleaning instructions. Cashmere and wool, for example, may need hand washing and air drying, or you might need to get them dry cleaned. Cotton can usually go right into your washer and dryer, especially if there aren’t any extra embellishments on it. This means that you may want to opt for an easy-clean material like cotton for seating areas where spills tend to happen. The material’s thickness is also something to think about if you want to be able to moderate how warm the throw is. Thick materials such as faux fur are usually warmer than lighter cotton throws. You can also apply a similar selection process to throw blankets as you do for pillows based on how the material, color and pattern look with the surrounding decor in your room.

Throws and pillows aren’t the only decorative accessories that can put a beautiful finishing touch on your home decor. Our selection of home decor and furnishings includes important accent pieces like dining room lighting and mirrors to enhance the style and bring some function into your decorative mix. As you browse, it can be helpful to have a specific decorative look or feel in mind so you can keep all your selections cohesive, no matter what look you’re going for.
