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 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.
Decorative silk pillows are made not only from silk, but also frequently have handcrafted silk patterns embroidered on them as well. The design might match the shade of the background so the pattern is discernible by its raised texture, or it may be in a matching shade so that you can see and feel the decoration.
