We offer our pillow covers in various sizes to best show off the fabric design but you may request any size you want or need. Some of our fabric buys are small so we may not have enough yardage to make your desired pillow sizes but we try very hard to fill any request you may have.
Here are a few pillow tips!
Shape and size: A few big pillows 18 x 18 or larger look cleaner than a jumble of smaller ones. Squares should be 18 to 24 inches across, large enough to showcase a solid color or a pattern. Oblongs (lumbars) are a nice foil, since they are a different shape and and play off the square sizes.
Fabric: A limited color palette and large geometric prints on smooth, tightly woven fabrics, like cotton and linen, work well in a contemporary setting. But if you love having lots of colors, take a tip that applies to all settings: "Pull colors from a piece of art or rug or fabric that's in the room.
Pillow number and placement: Two or four large pillows arranged on either side of a sofa impart a sense of symmetry and order. If you like a looser and more casual look then mix it up a bit.
Shape and size: Pick similarly sized pillows to tie together an assorted collection. Generally, a few larger pillows- 18-24 inch -are preferred by interior designers.
Fabric: Velvets and tapestry fabrics tend to be more traditional. If you have a contemporary room. cottons, jacquards, and linens work well. You can assort your pillows in prints and solids or pair a large print with a smaller design. Generally 2 very large prints don't go together as well as a large and a smaller print. You can have a couple of pillows that match or five pillows in five different fabrics, but make sure there's at least one color in common to give the arrangement some unity.
Finally:These are tips not the law. It's your room, you do what you love. If a jumble of color and sizes are what make you sing then go for it! Rules are to be broken in interior design. It's just pillows and accessories and they can be moved around used in other rooms. They are are a very small investment with a very large impact. Have fun and enjoy!

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
