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 over-board with pillows, they end up on the floor. Because honestly…your family has to sit someplace.
Finding that happy medium is a bit of a challenge, but it can be done. Here are a few tips:
- Provide a source in your space where the pillows can land, other than the floor. A large basket, the bottom of a book shelf, a wicker trunk.
- Choose reasonably-sized 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 punch as a larger pillow.
- Don’t go overboard. 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.
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 and that I can honestly recommend.
Sources for Farmhouse Throw Pillows
T.J.Maxx or 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.
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 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 (Great Source for Linen Pillows)
I just discovered a new (to me) source for farmhouse and linen pillows. I have known about H & M and even been to their website, but I didn’t realize they have home decor items. I was astonished at the selection and low prices. They have natural fabrics like linen and cotton, low shipping plus a huge selection. You can see my favorites in the slider below. Just click the arrows to scroll and then click the image.
Tip: If you see something on the H & M website, don’t wait if you really want it. Their items sell out very quickly.
I ordered two pillow covers from H & M for my front porch and as soon as I can, I will show them to you.
Pottery Barn Pillow Covers
Although I don’t shop at Pottery Barn on a regular basis, I love to stroll through their stores and when I do, I always find something I can’t live without. I got the two large navy pillow covers pictured below during one of those strolls and they are wonderful. The little blue plaid pillow fits in anywhere, so it moves around the house. They run sales almost all the time and offer free shipping on a regular basis. It’s a good idea to sign up for their emails so you don’t miss out on something you want. Shop HERE.
I continue to be amazed, on a daily basis, at what you can find on Amazon. You can literally get anything…including really nice farmhouse pillows at reasonable prices. Amazon has also added 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.

Farmhouse Pillows on Etsy
I love Etsy. I love supporting anyone who sells handmade items, so when I am looking for farmhouse pillows, Etsy is one of the first places I look. Here is a list of my favorite shops:
Sew Your Own Farmhouse Pillow Covers
If you can sew a straight stitch, you can make your own farmhouse throw pillows. Here are two of my easiest pillow cover tutorials. They have both just been updated so if you have any questions, please let me know.
