Bolster pillows are a type of decorative throw pillow that can be used to accessorize a room. They are traditionally used to soften the space between the seat and arms of a formal sofa, to provide support along the ends or back of a daybed, or as neck roll pillows on a bed. A cylindrical bolster pillow or pillow shams can be as simple as an open tube of fabric with the ends tied or drawn closed, or more structured with the ends of the tub enclosed with sewn-on rounds. Mixing bolster pillows with other types and shapes of decorative throw pillows gives a completed, decorator look to beds, couches, and other upholstered furniture.
You‘ll also need to buy something to ˝stuff˝ your new pillows. You can either use batting, which is loose stuffing, or a pre-made pillow form insert. Batting is cheaper and can be divided up for multiple projects, but pillow forms hold their shape better. You might want to look at any throw pillows you currently own and see which type of stuffing they use to make your decision. If you decide to use a pillow form, make sure to buy one that is a few inches larger than the size pillow you'll be making. This will ensure that your pillow ends up fluffy and not flat.
Using hooked pillows as accessories in home decorating is always a smart idea - and an economical one too - due to their affordability and familiar themes.
