Where I Find My Farmhouse Throw Pillows

My best sources for affordable farmhouse throw pillows. Includes linen pillows, Pottery Barn pillow covers, & several other sources for farmhouse pillows. 

Pillows. You either love them or you hate them…I don’t think there’s really any in-between! Throw pillows have so many endearing qualities and yet, they can be the source of tremendous frustration for family members who just don’t get it. More often than not, if you go overboard with pillows, they end up on the floor. Because honestly…your family has to sit someplace.

Tips for Choosing Pillows

Finding that happy medium is a bit of a challenge, but it can be done. Here are a few tips:

  • When your guests want to sit in a chair, sometimes they want the pillow, and sometimes they don’t. Provide a source in your space where the pillows can land when removed, other than the floor. Some suggestions are a large basket, the bottom of a book shelf, or a wicker trunk.
  • Choose reasonably-sized decorative pillows. 18 x 18 inches or 20 x 20 inches is plenty big enough. Small lumbar pillows are perfect for chairs, and pack the same designer punch as a larger pillow.
  • What is the rule of thumb for throw pillows? Less is more. More than five pillows on a sofa is too much…and that might be pushing it. (Just my opinion.) I also limit myself to one pillow per chair. 
  • Choose pillows that are a neutral color, or that blend with your color scheme. An occasional seasonal pillow is fine, but being able to use your core pillow collection year-round is a smart and savvy idea.

I’ve had a lot of questions about my pillows lately, so I wanted to put all the source information in one place. Listed below are all the places or websites where I shop on a regular basis for farmhouse style throw pillows, and that I can honestly recommend.

T.J. Maxx + HomeGoods

I know we all don’t have a T.J. Maxx or HomeGoods down the street…but I had to include them in this round-up. My town doesn’t have a HomeGoods, but we do have a T.J. Maxx. I like to stop in occasionally just to see what’s new. I have accidentally found some lovely things, especially farmhouse throw pillows. It’s always worth a look.

IKEA

Some of us love IKEA (I’m raising my hand) and some of us hate it. Either way, the fact of the matter is that they have great throw pillow covers and pillow inserts at incredible prices. It’s hit or miss depending on where they are seasonally, but I always seem to find something I can’t live without. (The pillows with blue dots on the sofa above are from IKEA several years ago.)

H&M Home

A few years ago I discovered an amazing source for modern farmhouse throw pillows and linen pillows. I was astonished at the quality and low prices. They have natural fabrics like linen and cotton, low shipping, plus a huge selection.

Tip: If you see something on the H&M website, don’t wait if you really want it. Their items sell out very quickly.

Pottery Barn

I love to stroll through a Pottery Barn store because I always find something I can’t live without. I found the two large navy pillow covers pictured here during one of those strolls, and they are wonderful. The little blue plaid pillow fits in anywhere, so it moves around the house. PB runs sales almost all the time, and offers free shipping. Sign up for their emails so you don’t miss a thing.

Amazon

I continue to be amazed at what you can find on Amazon. You can literally get anything…including really nice farmhouse pillows at reasonable prices. Amazon has also has a “Handmade” category that has some wonderful selections. I added my favorite farmhouse pillow covers to my Amazon Shop so you can find them easily.

The pillow selection at Walmart is huge and varied. When shopping on walmart.com, make sure to use the filters to narrow down the choices. It will make finding what you want so much easier!

Etsy

I love Etsy. I like supporting anyone who sells handmade items, so when I am looking for farmhouse pillows, Etsy is one of the first places I look. See the blue pillow covers HERE.

Keep Your Collection Under Control

Pillow covers are something I have collected for years, but I haven’t kept every single one! An occasional purge is healthy, and makes room for updated styles. When I feel like I have too many, I share with my daughter and daughter-in-law, or I donate the ones I no longer use.

Pillow Cover Storage

I store my pillow covers in a small closet in my office, pictured below. Other storage ideas are a large lidded basket, a trunk, lidded bins on a closet shelf, or drawer space. It’s nice to store your pillow covers someplace where you can see exactly what you have.

    I, too, love throw pillows! Just when I think I have the right placement, a pretty find comes my way and bingo! I’m rearranging. But that’s the fun of decorating. Thank you for sharing all your great sources.
