You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look. If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.
The key to the plumping is that you have to set up the pillows in layers. You can't lay them down flat like you do when you‘re sleeping or you‘ll just end up with a big pile of pillows! You have to arrange them standing up on their edges and in rows.
Visit a local fabric store to purchase the supplies you'll need to make your decorative pillows. If there isn‘t one nearby, you can also find lots of fabric and supplies online. Or, you may have an existing item of clothing or other fabric in your home that you want to recycle for this project.
The material used to fill the pillows can be cotton, foam, or feathers. Feather filled sofa pillows are extremely soft to touch. Unique fabric used for casing lends an exclusive look to sofa pillows.
Making pillows: squares, circles, rectangles, ovals, and bolsters are all the most obvious pillow shapes. You don‘t need to stop there; you can make any shape you want. There are even pillows that store blankets! There are so many possibilities; it‘s a good thing that you don‘t have to pick just one! You can even choose to have pillows in the shape of Sponge Bob, Dora, Monsters or any of your other favorite characters.
