Designing With European Pillows
A good design strategy is have European pillows with covers that match or contrast the doona cover used. In this case, the European pillows are often placed behind textured or plain complimentary standard pillows. Alternatively, one can use European pillows with plain or textured covers paired with standard pillows that match the duvet cover.
This is an ideal use for the velvet European pillow cases, as they will serve as nice contrasts with your doona and sheet sets.
European pillows are also perfect additions to lounge rooms as well. They can quickly be used to add splashes of colour to a couch, chair, or poof.
Using European Pillows
European pillows, also known as Euro Sham Pillows, are largely intended to be decorative rather than functional. They’re used to add colour and shape to a room quickly and affordably; an invaluable tool for rapidly redesigning through the year as fancy takes you.
In functional terms, European pillows are often used as backrests when sitting in bed reading, or enjoying the occasional breakfast in bed.
In the living room, European pillows are almost wholly decorative, but can be used as a cushion on a chair or as padding on the lap when sitting on the couch
