Solid Pillow Covers

Velvet, Leather and Linen Pillow Covers Make Inviting Accents

The pillows are often what brings a flair and personality to a sofa or bed. Make the ones in your home a reflection of your style by browsing the extensive collection of solid velvet, leather and linen pillow covers available at Williams Sonoma. Keep it subtle with a neutral accent pillow or make a bigger statement by selecting a vibrant pop of color.

Key Considerations for Picking the Perfect Pillow

Color, size, texture and care instructions are just a few of the factors that can aid in narrowing down the search for the ideal accent pillow. Begin by considering the needs of the space and then look for items that will help achieve your goals while helping to maintain a livable and inviting area.

  • Color: When it comes to color, the two primary choices are between selecting a neutral or a pop of color. Consider the existing color scheme of the space and choose a hue that will blend in with the decor.
  • Size: The size of the pillow needs to be proportionate to the size of the furniture it is decorating. Large pillows make a great backdrop on a queen or king-sized bed or as a first row of pillows on a large sectional or sofa. Smaller pillows are ideal as accents on a single chair or loveseat.
  • Texture: Solid pillows may be all one color but there are other ways to bring in visual appeal. Velvet, leather and linen pillow covers each offer a distinct texture. Some pillows feature woven elements, fringe and stitched details that make them an instant focal point.
  • Care Instructions: If the pillow is going to be used in a home with children or pets, a machine-washable design may be an important factor. If the pillow is going to be displayed in a rarely-used space the care instructions may not be a priority.

Pillow Covers Vs. Pillow Inserts

When shopping for accent pillows, there are two main components. The pillow cover is the decorative case that creates the pillow exterior. The pillow insert is the plush interior that provides the comfort and support. Some pillow covers and pillow inserts are sold together while others are sold separately. Make sure that both pieces are present to complete the pillow. If you enjoy a seasonal look, use the same pillow inserts and change out the pillow covers to coordinate with the season. Complete the look by choosing a throw that complements the pillows selected.
