Why do People Use Decorative Pillows?
Decorative pillows came into vogue in Victorian-era Britain. People often entertained guests in their bedrooms where a fire was lit, and the ambience was warm and welcoming. To show their status or affluence; they’d layer beautifully ornate silk pillows on the bed, in all shapes and sizes. This style has remained through the years and now evokes a feel of luxury and comfort. Some feel ‘the more pillows the better’ and others believe that just 1 or 2 well-chosen colors or patterns is all you need. Don’t ask a man though, he’ll tell you he only needs the pillow under his head, the rest are ridiculous!

Can Decorative Pillows be Used as a Lumbar Pillow?
Those that suffer with low back pain, or are pregnant need a little more padding in the right places. You’d love our silky-smooth bamboo fabric which is hypoallergenic, in the Lumbar Pillow or the Quilted Decorative Pillows. They offer just the right amount of padding or lift where needed. Some like to snuggle with one under an arm to raise it while sleeping. Or put one between your knees to take pressure off your hip joints. They also work perfectly as reading pillows when a little pillow under your neck offers the lift you need to watch tv or read a book. Tip: put one UNDER your laptop or device so that you have a little barrier between you and the EMF, or the heat of the device.
Can I Use the Pillows on my Couch or Chair?
Absolutely, and it will offer a unique look compared to the traditional squares that are often used. The BedVoyage Lumbar Pillow and the Quilted Decorative Pillows will work great on a sofa or chair. They can be purely decorative, or be used on movie-night when you want to rest your head. Euros are also versatile as floor pillows when you have guests and need additional seating. They can also really jazz up an outdoor sofa for those that have large seating areas and what to pretty them up!
Is the Bamboo Fabric Gentle enough to use as my Bed Pillow?
Standard Shams get used as a regular pillowcase on many beds! Customers often order them if they like a tight-fitting pillowcase, with no open hems. They can do double duty as your pillow AND as your decorative sham. The piping around the edge will not irritate you when sleeping, yet the silky smoothness of the bamboo fabric is gentle on skin and hair. Its also resistant to bacteria and odors, so your pillow will stay fresh longer. The eco-melange fabric has a couple great attributes as a bed pillow too, as its PBO safe (won’t stain from any retinal face creams) and its bleachable. So no need to worry about makeup or skin cream discolorations.
