Pillow talk

I just love throw pillows. They are a cheap and easy item to create a whole new look in a space. Every season I switch colours and patterns to do a small make over with big impact.  Mastering a throw pillow mix is not rocket science because there are really no hard and fast rules. The right combination and arrangement can be accomplished by just experimenting and daring to try something bold. Pattern with flowers, small pattern with bold pattern, pattern with solid, 3 different patterns, but in the same colour scheme. Just try and you’ll see. Today, I’m sharing my three favourite pillow brands with you. Which one makes your heart beat faster?

The Go’round pillows

This Dutch brand is my number 1 favourite brand. They use a lot of ethnic inspired patterns like the Icco pillows inspired by tiles from Turkish Iznik or the Ottomanian inspired patterns and colours, you see below. The Go’round pillows are usually between €30 – €50 and are available at Loods 5, Woonwinkel ‘t Klooster and many other stores.

De kussenfabriek

Another Dutch brand I have piled on my couch is De Kussenfabriek. The pillows are handmade in the Netherlands. The whole collection is designed by Karin Elberse who is always on the look out for new trends and uses local as well as foreign fabrics. She uses fabrics from renowned fabric designers and brands like Romo, Zinc, Harlequin, Elitis en Chivasso. The pillows are available at De Bijenkorf and a selection of home decor stores.

Dransfield and Ross

Dransfield and Ross throw pillows are a mix of textures and colors. I’m especially infatuated by their ethnic inspired pillows with ikat patterns and by their geometrical patterns in vivid colours like orange and turquoise. The pillows are available at a.o. Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Horchow, Gumps Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
