We all love a good patterned pillow. Accent pillows are an easy way to add a luxe touch to your decor. Acting as the sort of cherry on top of the cake of your sofa or bedding, they make your setup feel more carefully considered and really elevate your space. Better yet - from statement styles to more minimalist accent pieces, there’s a patterned pillow out there for everyone.
The best home decor stores are full of stunning patterned pillow designs ATM, and I’ve selected the very best for you below. Whether you’re looking to make a statement with a bold color and print or prefer something more subtle – standing out from the stack with its understated elegance – I’ve got you covered. We’re huge fans of accent pillows here at Livingetc., and have rounded up the best (from minimalist pillows to statement pillows) but if you’re after an enchanting patterned piece or two to complete your stylish stack, read on.
Our top 9 patterned pillow picks
Livingetc knows design. We spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, bringing only our edit of the very best to you. Find out more about how we review.
Minimalist patterned pillows
The classic cream and black color combo and simple yet elegant line pattern mean this pillow exudes understated elegance. The raised texture adds a luxe feel, meaning it will still make a subtle statement.
Minimalist decor doesn’t have to mean devoid of color – just take this pillow as an example! I adore the eye-catching green embroidered squares which add a bit of interest without taking away from the sleek, subtle design.
Statement patterned pillows
The woven design and solid opaque blocks make this patterned pillow cover the perfect blend of modern and classic. With its embroidered detail, it feels far more expensive than it actually is!
If statement decor for you means a bold pattern and a bright pop of color, then this Nordstrom pillow is the piece for you! Again, it has that stunning embroidered detail which adds an elegant-yet-eye-catching edge.
Floral patterned pillows
If you can't tell by now, I'm a huge fan of embroidered detail on pillows – it just adds such an elevated feel to patterned designs! This bold floral piece is no exception. It will pair perfectly with similarly bright pillows.
And if you prefer printed to embroidered pattern, this olive green piece is the ideal choice. The high-quality linen features a block print which is hand-pressed on both sides for a striking effect and organic feel.
How do you pair patterned pillows?
It’s easy to play it safe and stick to just one statement patterned pillow among a stack of more muted styles, but where’s the fun in that? It’s actually pretty simple to layer different patterned pillows together, and here are some tips to help.
Firstly, take a look at the size of the pattern on each pillow. Mixing patterns of different sizes ensures they aren’t competing with each other, and makes for a much more cohesive arrangement. And don’t be afraid of mixing different styles of pattern together – florals and geometric shapes work surprisingly well together, for example.
When it comes to the shades you choose, clashing colors makes for a fun and eye-catching look – especially if you’re into maximalist decor. But if you prefer a more muted scheme, stick to patterned pillows of a similar color group, like neutrals, earthy tones, or different shades of your favorite color.
