When I designed Birdie’s nursery (above) I bought this round pillow from Canvas Home (no longer available) not knowing how much I was going to love and use it. It just made styling easier and everywhere I used it, whether it was on a sofa or bed. I kept moving it around the house for shoots and it looked so good in each spot. So in my ‘Rethink the …’ series (bed pillows, lampshades and towel hooks) I felt compelled to add this to the list. Squares and rectangles are great, but adding in that pretty round shape creates contrast, interest and gives the room a bit of whimsy.
Mixing straight with curvy has always been my jam. A squared off chair with a round side table. A long modern sofa with a oval coffee table. It just helps make a room feel more balanced. So now, your pillows can, too.
It takes the room in a happier direction, instantly. You mix it with squares and rectangles just like you would any other pillow, but better. Even two on your bed in front of your shams would be so cute.
We started seeing them pop up all over the market and chose our favorites below. Note that a lot of these come in different colors so if you aren’t into the exact color click in and there are often more options.

I love so so many of these (1-6). They are more expensive than typical squares or rectangles because I think they are harder to sew (eh?) but based on how much I’ve loved mine, they just might be worth the splurge.
Am I the only one that is super into the round pillow? Or are you guys down, too?
