Pillow Perfect: Hot Dates for Your Sofa!

Pillow Perfect GIF 
I have a little confession to share with you all today. I'm a Pillow Pusher! Yep, for years now I have been playing matchmaker for many a sofa, always on the hunt to find them the hottest and most stylish date in town. So, today I'm widening my net and sharing some of the best pillow picks on the market right now for your sofa. In the little gif above not only can you see just how excited I get about throw cushions (ed: Mr. Bazaar might need to check into home accessories rehab soon) but you can also see each of the pillows in turn as they are added to the sofa - and there's something for everyone. Are you a colour lover? The Hove or Nice cushions are your best friend. Perhaps you go gaga for anything graphic, then the Anchor or '&' designs are for you. If you're looking to add a dash of whimsy, opt for the Gran designs or the needlepoint owl. More of a vintage maven? The soldiers fabric pillow is bound to delight. Or, if you're the crafty type, why not silkscreen print a fabric cover like I did with the Clarissa Hulse design at a recent Dalani event! So, tell me, are you a Pillow Pusher? Which one are you going to set up to date your sofa?!

  9. This is so much fun!! I'm a total pillow pusher and have been determined to find that hot date for my sofa every season! mostly custom for a match made from Heaven ... but loving the collection you pulled for us here. My top picks are the anchor, the nice biscuit, and definitely the grey christmas trees!

    now which ones are you keeping for yourself Mr?

  11. Oh my goodness Will!! So fun! I'm addicted to buying pillows..and tea towels!

  12. Thank you for putting a big smile on my face! :-) The gif is so cool and funny and makes me feel enthusiastic about pillows even though (or because?) I'm still in my PS! I love this eclectic mix and the addition of the bold graphics! I love pillows in our home, too, but I'm struggling with finding the "right" ones for our sofa. I've been making some myself and while I like the pillows themselves, I'm still not happy with the pairing. So this dating advice for pillows is very useful, I think something in the style of the graphic prints and the soldiers might work very well! :-)
