Along with window treatments, pillows and other soft treatments are the easiest and most effective way to finish a room. A well-placed pillow in a beautiful fabric can transform a sofa or chair and we love the ability to contrast and layer fabrics, patterns and colors.
For your indoor or outdoor furniture, we provide custom throw pillows, bench and window seat cushions, ottomans and other soft treatments all created to fit perfectly while coordinating with your existing home decor. We provide a huge selection of fabrics, quality workmanship and have the resources to facilitate beautifully crafted products.
Here is a guide of the types of pillows you can choose from:
The most basic type of decorative pillow is the “knife edge” pillow. In its simplest form, a knife edge pillow is simply two pieces of fabric that have been sewn together around the edges, forming a sharp, simple seam. Knife edge pillows can be square, round or they can be made in a lumbar pillow, which is rectangular in shape and intended to sit at your lower back – or lumbar – area.
A welted (aka corded) pillow is a knife edge pillow with the addition of a decorative cord or welting at the seam. The cord or welt can contrast the fabric for more interest, or it can be in a matching color for a more subtle look. If the welt is made from the same fabric as the body of the pillow, it is called a self-welt pillow.
A flange pillow has a flat band of fabric at its edges called a flange. It can be made from a contrasting fabric, and it can also be done in the same fabric as the rest of the pillow.
A bolster pillow is cylindrical in shape. They come in many sizes, and they can have flat ends or ends that have been gathered.
A box pillow has flat sides. Unlike the knife edge pillow that is flat at the seams, a box pillow has taller edges and is constructed like a box. Box pillows can also be made into cushions, and this type of construction is common as a floor cushion or chair seat when filled with a piece of foam. The sides of the “box” can be made of flat fabric or gathered fabric, and it can match the top of the pillow or contrast it.
We have an endless selection of beautiful fabrics! We will put our creativity and expertise to work to put the finishing touches on your home decor. Give LC Window Treatments a call today for a free in home consultation 628-400-1665.
