When it comes to pillows, some people can never get enough. Pillows are fun to play with and easy way to switch up the look of your rooms without buying new furniture or bedding every season.
Lots of people have large collections and they have pillows with intricate details that can take a pillow to a level of style and luxury with the right trim. There are many kinds of trim and techniques, so it can be hard to know what you want when it comes to fitting your pillows into your home design. You really can’t go wrong with most trims on pillows, they really make a pillow look special.
Staring off with one of the most recognizable pillow trims, there is traditional cording. This is a simple welt around the pillow’s edge that offers a clean line to your design. This simple but high-impact type of trim can be spiced up by using a contrasting color to the fabric of the pillow or by being an addition to other types of trim. Whether you choose to keep it simple or add an additional flair, like tape trim, the traditional cord makes for a beautiful pillow.
Taking trim to the next level is a flange finish. A flange is a strip of fabric, usually 1/2-inch to 1 inch in width that attaches to the edges of a pillow giving it an almost sham-like appearance. A flange can be done in either the same pattern as the pillow or a contrasting pattern or color. You can also add a micro-welt to the flange for even more dimension and interest.
If you want to push it further than flange, you can add in ruffles and pleats for show stopping pillows that pop. A micro-welt and ruffles combination can add a pop of color to your well-tailored creation. Corner pleats can be added to the mix for a luxurious and expensive look.
Some people find they don’t want trim at all and go with either fun fringe or a knife edge finish, which are two other beautiful choices. With almost endless options, the most fun part is finding the colors and fabrics that you love to create a stunning and truly custom look that is unique to you.
