Art Deco + Colorful + Furry
Why it works: Perfectly matched pillows might look too calculated. Feel extra creative at home! Adding an element of the unexpected, such as an abstract print in sunset colors with a New York-style art deco patterned pillow and a faux fur cushion thrown in for texture, speaks more volumes than a safe setup.

Naive Florals + Fauna + Bold Chevron
Why it works: You can have three trends on one sofa if you work with pillows that have a background of white. Geometric and nature-inspired prints can lend a playful vibe to a staid couch.
