Throw Pillows Sizing Guide

It’s no secret that throw pillows can easily dictate the feeling of a space and can make a room feel finished. Throw pillows look nice on their own but if you want to use them to their full potential, you should be mindful of the pillow sizes you’re using. When it comes to throw pillows, a guide to sizing can help you turn a piece of furniture into a stunning display of beauty and comfort.

There is a complete range of throw pillow sizes. Some examples include:

  • 20” x 26”
  • 12" x 24"
  • 20" x 20"
  • 26" x 26"

How many pillows you place on a single piece of furniture depends on both your personal preference and the amount of space you have available. For example, smaller chairs can benefit from simply having a single 20” or 22” pillow in the center. Similarly, if you’re placing the pillows on a large couch, having one 22” pillow on each side, as well as one in the center (if there’s enough room), will do the trick.

Layering pillows can help you achieve appealing visual depth. Ultimately, the size of the pillow you use in the first layer depends on the size of the furniture it’s on. Although the first layer size varies, you’re typically going to use a larger pillow sizing from: 22” to 26” inch pillows.

For instance, if you’re placing the pillows on a large bed, consider using two layers of 26” throw pillows, and scale down in size with one or two additional layers, preferably with 22” and 18” pillows. The same idea goes for couches!

When it comes to layerign, you don't have to match the number of pillows per layer. If you have two large pillows on your first layer, you can have one on the second. Play around with it and see what you look you like best!
