Pillow Talk, Part II: Design Examples

Feather vs Polyester Filled? Corded? Knife Edge? Turkish Corners? Bolster, Lumbar, or tiny decorative Ring Bearer squares? Pillows can be as complex or simple as any other design element. Below are two examples of the types of beautiful custom pillows we can create in our Hilliard, Ohio workshop.  If you’re ready to create your own custom pillows- check out our huge selection of pillow forms in different shapes, sizes and fillings, fabulous fabrics and trims!

Embellished Pillows are particularly well suited as decor focal points…or as gifts! Gifting a custom pillow may not be the first thing you think of for Christmas, but for special occasions like graduations or birthdays, an embellished, personalized pillow can be the perfect gift.  Here, team spirit is celebrated for a graduating high school senior – a perfect touch of home for a new dorm room!

 Jeff, our pillow guy, created this beauty for a customer – a textured neutral fabric is enlivened by a faux leather flange.  The customer wanted to stay within a more traditional color palette but the possibilities for flanges are endless.  Imagine this cushion with a wider flange in fun textured pearl white vinyl!
