I love buying throw pillows. The more pillows, the better, in my opinion. They’re an easy way to decorate your home, and they can also change up your aesthetic instantly and make your space feel fun and fresh. But as I accumulate more and more pillows, the lack of bed and couch space becomes a problem. Plus, when I don’t have the energy to arrange a dozen cushions, I often leave them in a giant pile on the floor. That’s why I was excited to see the return of the bolster pillow — only with a twist.
Bolster pillows, which have a long, cylindrical shape, are great for decorating. Similar to a lumbar pillow, they can be used for back support, so they’re typically firmer than the average pillow or cushion. This time around, though, bolsters have been super-sized for a one-and-done touch anywhere you’d normally pile on on the pillows. Throw an extra-wide design across your bed or sofa like a centerpiece, or pick a smaller style to do same thing on an accent chair. In general, for the price, you get a lot of surface area for pattern and texture in one convenient pillow package with bolsters.
The best part, though, in my opinion? With an oversized bolster pillow, making the bed in the morning is quicker than ever, and the end result looks modern and polished. Below, shop 10 of my favorite trendy bolster pillows that just may leave you wanting to part ways with your giant pile of throw pillows for good.
