Let's face it: we've seen trends come and go. Remember bell-bottom jeans? Or that mullet hairstyle you regret from your teen years? But when it comes to home décor, are throw pillows timeless or just a passing trend?
The Longevity of Pillows: Throw pillows have been gracing couches since couches first had that "new furniture" smell. From the palaces of ancient emperors to the minimalist apartments of today, these plush little accessories have shown a remarkable ability to adapt and stay relevant.
Trendsetters or Trend Followers? Here's the thing about throw pillows: they’re like chameleons. New color trend this year? Pillows got it. Neon and sequins making a comeback? There's a throw pillow for that. They have the uncanny ability to mold themselves to whatever the current style mantra is.
However, Too Much of a Good Thing... It's true, sometimes we've seen living rooms where the couch is gasping for breath under a mountain of throw pillows. In such cases, some might argue they've gone out of style. But then again, who are we to judge? Maybe it's avant-garde!
Verdict: Throw pillows aren't just in style—they ARE style. But, like with all things in life, moderation and a good color palette can work wonders.
