Statement Pillows

If you’re not ready to try a statement couch, statement pillows are the perfect plan b. They elevate a room instantly, and add extra comfort in a way not a lot of decor can do. Find a pillow you are obsessed with and base your entire design around that! Play with bold colors and patterns in a way you never have before. Break beyond your go-to color scheme and surprise yourself with how much you love chartreuse and cobalt all of the sudden. Whatever your design style, decide what statement you want your room to make and use pillows to say that loud and clear.

We can picture this stunning woodland motif pillow finding its place in any room in the house; it is refined while whimsical, colorful while mature. Everything we aim for here at Lars! Since animal print is having quite a moment in the fashion world right now, we thought this round velvet leopard pillow was the perfect nod to this fun trend. Imagine it paired with some hot pink or kelly green! Ah! Explore all of our favorite statement pillows below –

 

Accent Pillows

These pillows are unique and will draw the eye, but only after everything else in the room has already had its time in the spotlight. These are the kind of pillows that will make your visitors think “and there is more?!” Yes! More beautiful and thoughtful pieces to enjoy.

We can’t stop looking at these floral pillows in the most lovely shade of blue. Soften your decor and add dynamic shape with these rounded velvet pillows (which come in 11 different colors!!!) Which of the pillows below will accent your next room makeover?

 

Textured Pillows

What can take a room from great to WONDERFUL is texture. If you find your decor feeling a little bland, or blending together too much, instead of adding color or large pieces, first ask yourself how you can add texture. This is what makes a room one you want touch live in and never want to leave, instead of one you just want to look at.

 

Embroidered Pillows

Embroidery, the trend that has found its way into every corner of our lives, and we couldn’t be happier! Drawing its roots from 9th century Sweden, embroidery has proved it will continue to stand the test of time. Add it to your decor without any fear of it losing its fashionableness.

 

Pattered Pillows

Want a bold pillow that complements your room but doesn’t overrule it? These patterned pillows are the slightly quieter sisters to our statement pillows above. Their patterns make them eye-catching but are happy to take the backseat to other statement pieces if needed.

 

Solid Pillows

Does your room already have enough patterns and textures to look at? Use pillows to strengthen your color scheme and finish off your design. Like curtains and rugs, pillows have this magic ability to make a room feel complete and next-level (at the fraction of the price of a good rug, win-win!)
