Hooked pillows, like rugs, are made from strands of woolen yarn hooked through a canvas backing to create a specific design or motif. Often considered less formal than needlework pillows, hooked cushions may showcase holiday or other themes, and many use humor and whimsy as well.
Couch pillows that are hand made can be stitched with unique designs. It is possible to use beads and sequins to decorate couch pillows. Beautifully embroidered pillows can blend with almost any background. Intricate designs may take longer for completion. There are cushion makers who make pillows as per the requirement of the buyer. Colors and designs can be chosen from samples available with the makers. Alternatively, buyers can suggest a traditional design that would blend with the ambience of the room.
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.
If you're going for angular square or rectangle pillows you want them to be in the 16 - 26 inch range, no bigger but in a few cases they may be smaller. These pillows generally need to be large enough to full showcase a few passes of a given patter or even a large block of solid color. Rectangular pillows are really nice because the oblong shape is usually unexpected and adds a bit of extra flair. In most cases you will not be opting for a circular pillow, and unless you are an experienced designer or just know that you've got the stuff you should be cautious when approaching your sofa with spherical cushions. Round pillows tend to not blend well with the overall angels of your furniture, unless of course you a have very unique piece such as a cylinder bed or circular patterns in your rooms decor.
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.
