Whether you opt for tufted detail, brushed linens and cottons, or boucle for more of a sophisticated (yet still comfy) finish, sofa pillows are the easiest way to make your couch look and feel more cozy. Now that we’re officially moving into fall (the ‘ber seasons are right around the corner, I’m just saying!), it’s the perfect time to invest in some cozy pillows.

So I searched through the best home decor stores to find the coziest pillow styles to add to your sofa. We’re huge fans of pillows here at Livingetc - we’ve rounded up the best patterned pillows, boucle pillows, statement pillows and minimalist pillows, but this shippable pillow roundup is dedicated to the styles that will make your living room feel the most cozy.

How should pillows be arranged on a sofa?

For optimum coziness, I’m a firm believer that more is more when it comes to sofa pillows. Basically, it’s all about layering - but there is a knack if you want to make your couch look well-considered and not overstuffed.

Start by forming a base of two or three larger pillows at the back then scattering smaller styles in front, slightly overlapping one another. When in doubt, stick to the rule of three (or any odd number really) per side.

It goes without saying that the smallest pillow styles should be reserved for the front. You can also place any round or otherwise shapely designs (like the knot and ball pillows above) at the front of your stack to make a statement and balance out the shape.
